    11) Size distortion

    12) Human geography

    Explanation:

    In case of Mercator Projection, when there is an increase in latitude while moving from equator to pole, the scale tends to infinity. Lets take the case of Greenland and Africa, if we consider Mercator Projection, both are of equal size but in reality Greenland is much smaller than Africa. The branch of science that studies the affect of human activities on the environment is referred to as Human geography. Albedo can be defined as the degree f reflection or the measure of brightness of a surface. Albedo is dimensionless and varies from 0 to 1 for black body and white body respectively. The Albedo of the Earth is about 0.30
