Select the correct answer using the codes given below:

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: D

All subsidies which are supposed to distort production and trade fall into the amber box, i.e., all agricultural subsidies except those which fall into the blue and green boxes.  

These include government policies of minimum support prices (as MSP in India) for agricultural products or any help directly related to production quantities (as power, fertilizers, pesticides, irrigation, etc).
