1. Island State
2. Microstate
3. Entrepôt
4. Sovereign state
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [A] 1, 2, 3 & 4

As an entrepôt, Singapore has the economic purpose of importing goods and then re-exporting them at a higher price to other parts of the world. Singapore is an island that sits off the coast, very close to, but not on, Malaysia. Despite its economic importance, Singapore is a very small piece of land, and like Monaco or Brunei, it is considered a microstate.
