Mapped here are three types: parent with spouse and two children, single parent with one child, and single adult.

AP Human Geography FRQs

AP Human Geography FRQs | Harmony Social Studies | Scoop.it

"Based upon student reactions to their multiple choice exams, I can tell that the types of questions are NOT, 'choose the correct definition for the vocabulary term.' Instead, the types of questions are leading towards giving an example of a real world phenomenon and then requesting students to tell which term best applies. And though I have not seen an actual test, it sounds like the kids were saying that the questions require more reading than the answers (I would actually prefer that to the alternative)."
