    A)  1 and 2 only    

    B)  1 and 3 only

    C)  2 and 3 only    

    D)  1, 2 and 3

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] 1 and 2 only. This question might look a bit tough and irrelevant. You are surely not expected to remember the highest and lowest data of various population groups. However, you can get the right answer by elimination. The underlying fact is that scheduled tribes are highest in those states where there are large forest areas. UP certainly don't have that. In fact, UP has a marginal population of ST. So, eliminate the 3rd statement and you get your ans. Also remember that UP has largest rural and SC population.
