(ii) not clear from the height.

Answer:

  1. From the height, it is clear that the cities and valleys of the various countries are populated near the rivers. Besides, it also implies that the earth is round and that it had more sea than land.
  2. From the height, it is difficult to understand why the men on the earth find reasons to hate each other and build walls across cities and want to kill. This implies that Nature does not restrict itself in boundaries, but human beings are always trying hard to divide the beautiful planet by building walls among themselves.
