Previous Year Questions: 40 Days Mission

One cannot place less emphasis on the fact as to how important it is to solve questions asked by UPSC Previously. In fact, UPSC tends to repeat from its own stock, verbatim. 

This thread, shall be solely dedicated for posting questions asked in CSP & CAPF.

I shall be posting questions here on a daily basis. Urge you all to answer these in all seriousness. Shoot doubts if you have any, wrt solving any question. 

Remember the idea is to solve them, again. Reading questions and solutions is NOT sufficient. 

Cheers!

Even I am unable to understand the question in totality. Some websites claim Jute is not dominant there as jute is more of a delta crop. Therefore by elimination, sugarcane/teais the best option
