Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fallowing means?

    • A.

      Leaving land uncultivated

    • B.

      Intensive farming

    • C.

      Gardening

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Leaving land uncultivated
    Explanation
    Fallowing refers to the practice of intentionally leaving land uncultivated or unplanted for a period of time. This is done to allow the land to rest and regain its fertility, as continuous cultivation can deplete the soil nutrients. By leaving the land fallow, it helps to prevent soil erosion, control weeds, and improve soil structure. Intensive farming, on the other hand, involves maximizing production by using high inputs of labor, capital, and technology. Gardening refers to the cultivation of plants in a small-scale, usually for personal use or ornamental purposes. None of these options accurately define fallowing.

    The settlement pattern likely to grow in plain fertile agricultural areas is?

    • A.

      Circular

    • B.

      Rectangular

    • C.

      Linear

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Rectangular
    Explanation
    The settlement pattern likely to grow in plain fertile agricultural areas is rectangular. This is because rectangular patterns allow for efficient land use and easy access to agricultural fields. Rectangular settlements also provide space for roads and infrastructure to support the agricultural activities in the area. Additionally, rectangular patterns can accommodate the expansion of agricultural activities in a systematic and organized manner.

    Among the following, India’s Naga village sites show an adjustment to?

    • A.

      Areas that are flood prone

    • B.

      Defence needs

    • C.

      Areas having dry climate

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Defence needs
    Explanation
    India's Naga village sites show an adjustment to defence needs. This means that these village sites are strategically located and designed in a way that provides a defensive advantage. This could include factors such as being situated on high ground, having natural barriers like rivers or mountains, or having a layout that allows for easy defense against potential threats.

  • 4. 

    Monoculture is a typical characteristic of which of the following?

    • A.

      Shifting Cultivation

    • B.

      Intensive farming

    • C.

      Commercial grain farming

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Commercial grain farming
    Explanation
    Commercial grain farming is characterized by monoculture, which means growing a single type of crop over a large area of land. This is done to maximize efficiency and productivity, as it allows for specialized machinery, standardized practices, and easier management. Monoculture in commercial grain farming also enables mass production and distribution of crops for sale in the market. In contrast, shifting cultivation involves rotating crops and Intensive farming involves growing multiple crops simultaneously on a small area of land.

  • 5. 

    ____________ farming is common in areas having low rainfall.

    • A.

      Dairy farming

    • B.

      Paddy cultivation

    • C.

      Livestock ranching

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Livestock ranching
    Explanation
    Livestock ranching is common in areas having low rainfall because it requires less water compared to other forms of farming. Livestock such as cattle, sheep, and goats can graze on natural vegetation and survive in arid or semi-arid regions where there is limited water availability. This type of farming is well-suited to areas with low rainfall as it allows for the sustainable use of land and resources, while also providing a source of income through the production of meat, milk, and other livestock products.

  • 6. 

    The physiological density of population means?

    • A.

      Farming population per unit of cultivated area

    • B.

      Number of literates in the nation

    • C.

      Number of working persons in the nation

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Farming population per unit of cultivated area
    Explanation
    The physiological density of population refers to the number of farming population per unit of cultivated area. It is a measure that helps to understand the pressure on agricultural resources and the level of dependence on agriculture in a given area. This density indicates the efficiency and productivity of the agricultural sector and provides insights into the sustainability of food production in relation to the population.

    Among the following options, what is not true about Laterite soil?

    • A.

      Laterite soil is highly porous

    • B.

      Laterite soil is poor in fertility of grain crops

    • C.

      Laterite soil is not good in iron compounds

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Laterite soil is not good in iron compounds
    Explanation
    Laterite soil is known for its high iron content, making it rich in iron compounds. This iron-rich soil is commonly found in tropical regions, where it forms through weathering processes. The other options mentioned in the question are true about laterite soil: it is highly porous, meaning it has good drainage properties, and it is poor in fertility for grain crops. Therefore, the correct answer is that laterite soil is not good in iron compounds.

    In India, Green Revolution had limited impact in?

    • A.

      Wheat

    • B.

      Pulses

    • C.

      Rice

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Pulses
    Explanation
    The Green Revolution in India had limited impact on pulses. While the Green Revolution led to significant increases in wheat and rice production through the use of high-yielding varieties, improved irrigation, and chemical fertilizers, the same level of progress was not achieved in pulses. Pulses are more difficult to cultivate and require specific soil conditions and management practices. Additionally, the focus of the Green Revolution was primarily on staple crops like wheat and rice, leading to less attention and investment in pulses. As a result, the production and productivity of pulses in India remained relatively low compared to other crops.
