Q.1:- Give two reasons why the population of London expanded from the middle of the eighteenth century?

 

Answer:-

Two reasons why the population of London expanded from the middle of the eighteenth century are

(i) The city of London was a magnet for the migrant populations due to the job opportunities provided by its dockyards and industries. People from the regions around London migrated to the city for employment in the dockyard and the industries. So, the population of London kept expanding through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
(ii) During the First World War, London began manufacturing motor cars and electrical goods. This increased the number of large factories, which in turn increased the number of people coming to the city in search of work.
