|Consider the following statements.|
|1. Terrace farming are made on the steep slopes, so that flat surfaces are available to grow crops. They car reduce surface run-off and soil erosion.|
|2. In intercropping, different crops are grown in alternate rows and are sown at different times to protect the soil from rain wash.|
|3. Contour barrier is ploughing parallel to the contours of a hill slope to form a natural barrier for water to flow down the slope.|
|4. Shelter belts are the rows of trees that planted to check the wind movement to protect soil cover in the coastal and dry regions.|
|Which of the statements given above are correct?|
A) 1 and 3
B) 1, 2 and 3
C) 2 and 4
D) (d) 1, 2 and 4
