Yup! Other desertification-prone regions are most of Australia and the areas around the Sonoran Desert, Atacama Desert, Kalahari Desert, and the large desert made by the Sahara, Arabian, Thar, Taklimakan, and Gobi deserts.

What are the two ways parent material is deposited?
- Parent material can be transported by water through oceans, flood plains, delta deposits, etc. 
- Parent material can be transported by wind.
(not the most detailed answers, I know.)

Yeah other answers include colluvial, ice, etc. I was actually looking for the types of parent material-residual and transported but I phrased my question incorrectly

1. Describe 2 causes of urban sprawl.
2.  Urban sprawl often results in the loss of productive agricultural land near cities. Describe one practical way to increase food production within urban areas.

I don't really see how this is pertinent to this year's rules but
1. more job opportunities, push factors from the rural areas 2. in WWII to increase food production, the US government promoted Victory Gardens. I would do something similar. Essentially have roof-top gardens.

I meant to say Describe two environmental causes and effects of urban sprawl.My mistake, sorry! :oops: Those answers are good though, based on the questions.

Haha no worries. What major development has indirectly increased the deforestation rates in the Amazonian Rainforest and which 10 billion dollar proposal will make those rates even higher?

Yay
Name 3 goals set by the COP21 Paris climate talks last year.
Yes, I know it's not really important to this year's rules, but ya never know what's going to be on a test, so......
Edit: Ya know what? I'm just going to delete everything that used to be in this post and ask a new question to get this going again. varunscs11 would you please tell us the correct question to your answer, since I had about the stupidest answer ever, and I couldn't find the answer online.

The correct ans were Trans-Amazonian Highway and Trans-Amazonian Railroad.
