How are a village, town and city distinguished from each other?


-Anushree Ojha, Subject Matter Expert at Edumarz

Solution: A village and a city are differentiated in sociological terms by their social organization, administrative characteristics such as population density, and the amount of agriculture and related economic activity.

Villages arose as a result of the significant changes in social structure brought about by the transition from nomadic to sedentary existence. Agriculture and other primary occupations have always provided them with a source of income. They also have a lower population density. Towns and cities, on the other hand, have a higher population density and are more reliant on industry for income.

The size of a city versus a village determines the distinction. A city is similar to a town in size and area, but it is significantly larger.
