  • काफ़िर

    Durand line touches Pak administered Kashmir for some stretch. We still consider it be an Indian territory.

  • काफ़िर

    Intensive subsistence would require the soil to be fertile and well irrigated.

  • काफ़िर

    Taiga is located on high latitudes and is affected by solstice, but equator; not to that extent. Winter temperature in boreal forests can fall to -50 degree-Celsius while in summer it is around 15-18 degree-Celsius.

    There’s virtually no winter b/w 10 degree North-South latitudes; the equatorial region.

  • PBN

    Tree line is maximum altitude where tees can grow. Above that it is not conducive environment.

  • want ur reflections…

    least annual range of temperature ???shouldn’t be taiga??how equatorial explain????

  • Ishan Sharma

    Well I think while answering any question in UPSC, we have to assume India’s boundary to be the one which is in POK, no?

  • devmitra sen

    what is the connect of livestock and arid climate..can the answer not be intensive subsistence?

  • Goku

    And it is about 2400 km

  • Actually, some part of this line lies in PoK. That is why India claims.

  • Goku

    Durand line was drawn after afghan war 1919

    Q1 dairy bhi toh hai….. But it is less prominent so ans should be livestock ? I marked dairy 🙁

  • Simplex

    Ok got it Bhai…I marked India afgan only.
    Later on googled for other lines and parallels and thus got confused..

  • CSE2017 aspirant (ABG)

    When was Durand Line drawn ?
    I think it was by some Britisher.
    – b/w Undivided India and Afghanistan.

    As Afghanistan also borders India, some part of Durand Line will also be between India and Afghanistan.

    Of all the options given, You should tick the option which is the closest !!!

  • Garima Sachan

    Isnt it Afgan-Pak.

    I marked India- Afgan, which is wrong but forum gave me full marks.

  • Bhavika

    The tree line is the edge of the habitat at which trees are capable of growing. It is found at high elevations and in frigid environments. Beyond the tree line, trees cannot tolerate the environmental conditions (usually cold temperatures or lack of moisture)

  • Simplex

    Sandalwood- Alpine?????

    somebody please explain. Geog people come to rescue
