number 10 was easy

ok christianity and judasim, u can easily see its increased by a bit
i doubled buddism in 1991 and doubled islam in 1991

buddishm had a 60 thousand more than 1996 wen doubled
and islam had a 80 thousand more than in 1996 wen doubled

therefore buddism increased at a faster rate becoz wen the figure is doubled, and the closer it is to 1996, the faster it increases

just look at the fractions, kinda hard to explain, and do anyting to keep them both in ratio, double em, triple em, square em wateva so u can see a bigger differencce between the figures relative to each other

yeah. q10 bugged me. Why the hell would they put a maths question in there? It didn't occur to me that I'd be doing maths in a religion exam so I didn't bring a calculator.:mad1:

well it wasnt really a maths qstn

all u had 2 do is look at the 1996 figures. both r approx 200 000, so all u had 2 do is look at the 1991 figures and find out which had the lesser figure, which wud mean that it increased at a greater rate in the same time period.

rate of increase. christianity went up (or down. can't remember the figure) very little proportionally.

i think q10 was one of those general knowledge religion questions.
i tried to work it out mathematically but i couldn't. i think ur just meant to know that buddhism is fastest growing religion in australia, islam fastest growing in world and christianity isn't growing very fast

i'm just testing

Anyway, i agree with sarah, we were meant to know the answer without having to look at the stats.
At first i thought it was a maths question, but then remembered i had read it somewhere

Youre spose to just KNOW Buddhism is the fastest growing. We learnt it in our course, using a calculator i think just screwed a lot of people up because it asked for RATE not by how many.
As for the Uniting Church q. its Presbyterian im pretty sure- a little late in adding my 2cents but whoever argued the 1/2 joined half didn compared to 3/4 of congregationalists is correct. We also learnt that--not from our teachers though, from independent research.
The MC was pretty good all up, some VERY tricky questions mainly 4 and 7 for me.
Anyways all the best in SOR. Keep in mind that if you didnt go as good as you wanted to---dont worry not THAT many ppl made it into band6 last year not sure whether that helps but i thought id share anyways...
Well have a KILLER time on schoolies!!!
