Example Question #81 : Cities & Urban Land Use

The main housing unit in suburban neighborhoods is __________.

Possible Answers:

mixed-use complexes

the single-family house

multiple-unit apartment buildings

high-rise condominium

large public housing complexes

Correct answer:

the single-family house


The defining feature of suburbs, and the appeal for many people who move to them, is that they are dominated by single-family houses. This means suburbs, outer districts of urban areas, have lower population density and higher overall per capita wealth. These factors also lead to better government services and higher quality of local education.
