    using 130 as the base year, real GDP for year 1 = 6000/130 x 130 = 6000 real GDP for year 2 = 6800/150 x 130 = 5893 which is still a decline in real GDP. and hence its C. ps I'm studying Economics at uni. if you use the calculations you've used to get answer A, you're essentially no longer...

    Creating Writing Stimulus/Question

    the stimulus just has to be used in a way that it is significant to the story, but not necessarily the central idea.

    Questions about Stimulus booklet

    There is no stimulus booklet for belonging. There used to be a journeys stimulus booklet for the old AOS, but they scrapped it in 2008. So don't stress.

    creative writing

    i think you've got a brilliant story idea OP. perhaps focus on the different settings and highlight how different they are to the adopted girl. Good descriptions, dialogue and flair should do it.
