    Question Image

    Since land is more expensive in the suburbs, wealthier families build larger single-family homes in zone 5 in areas that provide amenities such as private schools for their children.

    Land is cheaper near the central business district (CBD), resulting in the construction of low-income apartments and giving low-income residents access to the amenities of the CBD.

    The lower cost of land farther from the CBD makes it affordable to build single-family homes in zones 4 and 5 for middle-income and high-income residents who desire to move into less crowded areas.

    People do not live in the CBD because of the traffic congestion, high cost of land, and lack of amenities such as museums and restaurants.

    Population density increases with the distance from the CBD as land prices decrease, allowing residents of all income levels to move farther away from zone 2.
