    A) 1 only  

    B) 2 only

    C) Both 1 and 2     

    D) None of the above

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Agriculture does not provide employment round the year. It is also known as perennial unemployment. Sowing and harvesting season ranges between five and seven months. For the rest of the period the cultivator has to remain idle. Experts believe that an Indian cultivator remains unemployed for five to six months. When the next sowing season starts he again goes back to cultivation. Therefore, it is called seasonal unemployment.
