    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    During the Chinese revolution between 1949 - 1968, Feng Shui was indeed suppressed. The Chinese government, under the leadership of Mao Zedong, sought to eradicate traditional beliefs and practices, including Feng Shui, as they were seen as superstitious and counter-revolutionary. Feng Shui, which is an ancient Chinese practice of arranging objects and spaces to promote harmony and balance, was considered a threat to the communist ideology. As a result, many Feng Shui practitioners were persecuted, and the practice itself was suppressed during this period.

Confucianism, on the other hand, emphasizes social harmony, moral values, and the importance of relationships. Both Taoism and Confucianism have had a significant influence on Chinese culture and society throughout history. Therefore, the statement that Taoism is one of the two major Chinese religions and philosophical systems is true.
