Is South Africa a MDC, NIC, or LDC

I believe that South Africa is an LDC, because it is not very developed. As shown in the previous slide the country has a low GDP per capita which means that the country is not very developed. It also has a low life expectancy which means that the country must not be that developed. They still do have a high literacy rate, but still I think that the country is and LDC by using the other facts.
