    B)  2 and 3            

    C)  1 and 3           

    D) (d) Only 3

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The DTH (Direct To Home) service is basically a digital satellite service that provides satellite television programming directly to subscribers home. DD Direct Plus is India's only free DTH service provider. DTH transmission eliminates the intervening role of a local cable operator since a user is directly connected to the DTH service, and transmission is most preferred in Ku-Band so as to avoid the need of larger dish sizes for suitable receiving the DTH signals. The DTH signals can be received anywhere across the country irrespective of the terrain conditions provided the area comes under the footprint of the satellite. So, the Statement 1 and 2 are correct and 3 is incorrect.
