  1. After the accident, radioactive materials were deposited mostly on open surfaces such as lawns, parks, roads, and building roofs, for instance by contaminated rain. Since then, the surface contamination in urban areas has decreased because of the effects of wind, rain, traffic, street washing and cleanup.


  2. An exclusion zone is a territorial division established for various, case-specific purposes.

    Per the United States Department of Defense, an exclusion zone is a territory where sanctioning body prohibits specific activities in a specific geographic area (see Military exclusion zone).[1] These zones are created for control of populations for safety, crowd control, or military purposes, or as a border zone, and they may be temporary or permanent.

  3. The Exclusion Zone covers an area of approximately 2,600 km2 (1,000 sq mi) in Ukraine immediately surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant where radioactive contamination from nuclear fallout is highest and public access and inhabitation are restricted.

  4.  2. The West Coast


    During World War II, Japanese Americans were held in relocation camps  because of the fear that they would give information to the Japanese or attack the U.S.  Suspicious of anyone of Japanese heritage, the government restricted the civil liberties of Japanese Americans.  

    In February, 1942, President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which allowed the Secretary of War to designate certain areas as "military areas" from which "any or all persons may be excluded."  The short designation for this was "exclusion zones."   Essentially the whole West Coast was designated as such an exclusion zone, which excluded any persons of Japanese ancestry from all of California and portions of Oregon, Washington, and Arizona, except for those who were relocated to government camps in those areas.  FDR's executive order set the stage for the relocation of Japanese-ancestry persons to such relocation camps or "internment camps." (Internment means people were "interned" or confined in those camps for military purposes).

    By June of 1942, over 100,000 Japanese Americans were sent to such internment camps.

  5. An exclusion zone is established by a sanctioning body to prohibit specific activities in a specific geographic area for control of populations for safety, crowd control, or military purposes, for the last one, is established by a country to prevent the unauthorized entry of civilian personnel/equipment for their own safety or to protect natural assets already in place in the zone.

    The correct option is option 2. The West Coast. Approximately 5,000 Japanese Americans relocated outside the exclusion zone before March 1942, while some 5,500 community leaders had been arrested immediately after the Pearl Harbor attack and thus were already in custody. The majority of nearly 130,000 Japanese Americans living in the U.S. mainland were forcibly relocated from their West Coast homes during the spring of 1942
