Did the population grow or shrink?
The aspect of geography that examines physical characteristics of the Earth is known as physical geography. The correct option among all the options that are given in the question is the third option or option "C".
Number of people in the year 2010 = 308.7 million
Number of people in the year 2000 = 281.4 million
Number of people by which the population grew = (308.7 - 281.4) million
= 27.3 million
Percentage of change in the population = (27.3/308.7) * 100
= 8.84 percent.
