Statements on Gandhi are correct. Answer is C.

Cesses and surcharges both go (initially) to the CFI, the only condition being that cesses may later be appropriated to a different fund and utilised for the purpose for which it was levied. Both are not shareable with State Governments.

1 and 4 are MPAs. so the answer should be either b or d. 

Saddle peak is the highest peak of A&N so it cannot possibly be a MPA. 

Therefore I'd go with (b) as answer

D. All are correct

I think its B. 

Statement 2 is probably wrong. Ploughing helps in making the soil porous. Plus 1 and 2 are contradictory. So i think statement 2 is wrong

D? Bhitarkanika and Sunderbans have to be MPA's given the biodiversity and wetlands. Leaves C and D. Going with D because Campbell Bay has bay in it. Has to be protected.
