    Correct Answer(s)

    C. Mechanisation of farming
    D. Flooding
    Explanation
    Push factors are factors that compel individuals or groups to leave their current location and migrate to another place. In this context, landlessness, mechanization of farming, and flooding can be considered as push factors. Landlessness refers to the lack of access to land, which can force people to search for better opportunities elsewhere. Mechanization of farming can lead to unemployment and displacement of agricultural workers, pushing them to migrate. Flooding can cause destruction of homes and livelihoods, making people seek safer and more stable environments. Better medical facilities, on the other hand, can be seen as a pull factor, attracting people to a particular location rather than pushing them away.
