please start discussion 

In my opinion the solution of the 1st picture is middle savagery because “use of fire”

2nd pic “middle Barbarism” because of plant cultivation

3rd “civilization” because use of industry

Kindly share your opinion too

 I think everyone can write on use of photography so there is no need for it.


Kindly share some discussion about it because today is last date for submission.

final solution?
