    2. India is presently heading towards TFR of 4 which is required for population stabilization. Which of the statements given above is/are incorrect?

    A)  1 only 

    B)  2 only

    C)  Both 1 and 2    

    D)  neither 1 nor 2

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] According to the Sample Registration System, the total fertility rate in India was 2.4 children per woman during 2011-13 (Government of India, 2014) and, in view of the fact that there is some underreporting in the system, it is logical to assume that the total fertility rate is higher than that estimated by the Sample Registration System.
