    “Jana Gana Mana” is the National Song of India.

    • A.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    "Jana Gana Mana" is actually the National Anthem of India, not the National Song. The National Anthem is a musical composition that is played or sung on official occasions to represent a country. On the other hand, a National Song is a patriotic song that represents the spirit and values of a nation. In India, "Vande Mataram" is considered the National Song. Therefore, the statement that "Jana Gana Mana" is the National Song of India is incorrect.
