Detail of Mcqs:

Honiara, on the island of Guadalcanal, is the capital city of the Solomon Islands. Its buzzing Central Market sells local produce and handicrafts. Traditional frescoes adorn the conical National Parliament building. The National Museum has WWII relics and cultural artifacts. The Botanical Gardens includes an orchid house. Outside the city, the waters of the Mataniko Falls thunder down a rocky cliff into a canyon. The town is situated at the mouth of the Mataniko River on the north coast of Guadalcanal. A port and communications centre, it trades chiefly in coconuts, timber, fish, and some gold (from Gold Ridge in the centre of the island). Honiara International Airport is located approximately 10 miles (16 km) east of the town. Prior to World War II, Honiara did not exist; it developed around the site of the U.S. military headquarters. In 1952 it officially replaced Tulagi as the capital of the Solomons.
