Answer

 

Question: Which of the following statements about Australian Aborigines can be supported from this text?

 

Incorrect: It is estimated that the population of Australian Aborigines peaked at about 400,000 some 30,000 years before white settlement.

 

Explanation: This response is incorrect. 400,000 is the current estimated Australian Aborigine population.

 

Incorrect: Despite being recognised internationally, the Aboriginal musical instrument the didgeridoo,rarely plays a significant role in Aboriginal cultural ceremonies.

 

Explanation: This response is incorrect. The passage says that the digeridoo is used “in formal ceremonies at such events as sunsets, circumcisions, and funerals.” These are significant events in the Aboriginal culture.

 

Correct: Today Aborigines comprise approximately 2% of the Australian population.

 

Explanation: This response is correct because it accurately conveys information from the second sentence in the passage: “Recent government statistics counted approximately 400,000 aboriginal people, or about 2% of Australia's total population.”

 

Correct: Aboriginal culture is based on a belief that people, animals, and the land are integrally linked.

 

Explanation: This response is correct. The “Dreamtime” paragraph says that aborigines believe that the people, animals and land share a common ancestry.

 

Incorrect: Unlike many other indigenous cultures, Australian Aborigines developed equitable relationships with colonial powers.

 

Explanation: This response is incorrect because the passage does not describe Australian Aborigines’ relationships with colonial powers as being different from those of other indigenous cultures. Rather, the passage says that Australian Aborigines had “like other indigenous populations, a difficult colonial history.”
