Correct answer is option 'A'. Can you explain this answer? - Group QuestionRead the passage below and answer the questions that follow.The UK-India relationship is strong, with a shared history going back centuries, and now a shared vision of the future. Since 2010, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has visited India three times, and the UK diplomatic network in India is now the largest in the world. Investment in each other's countries has grown, and there has been a renewed energy in collaborations. The UK is the third largest source of foreign direct investment in India. And India is the third largest source of FDI (in terms of the number of projects) in the UK, after the US and France. The UK imports more and more from India, though the level of its exports to the country has recently begun to stutter after several years of growth.Indian companies are playing an increasingly important role in the UK economy. Remittances from the UK to India are high. While it is difficult to know the exact level, a 2013 report in the Guardian, based on World Bank data, suggested remittances from the UK to India, including unrecorded transfers through formal and informal channels, could be worth up to $3.9bn (£2.6bn).More than 21,000 students from India study in the UK and there has been an increase in Chevening and other scholarships for Indian students. New initiatives in science and education such as the Newton-Bhabha Fund and an increase in research collaboration from £1m to £150m all add to a strengthening of the relationship and growth in trade.Since India's government made a significant shift in the early 1990s to liberalise and internationalise its economy, which led to a period of growth that continues today, the UK has steadily faced increased international competition for its attention. Fifteen years ago, the UK was India's third biggest trading partner; today it is its 12th. Mr Modi has already travelled to 27 countries in his first 18 months in office, developing relationships and signing new agreements. With its "Look East" policy, India's attention has also shifted to Japan, Korea and China, which is now India's biggest trading partner- Mr Modi's China visit this year yielded $22bn worth of deals. And just last month, India hosted a major summit of 50 African leaders, as they look to improve ties and trade with that continent. Meanwhile, young Indians are increasingly turning to the US, Australia and Germany for educational, employment and investment opportunities."Investment in each other's countries has grown, and there has been a renewed energy in collaborations."We can assume from the above statement that:
- a)There were no investments by Britain in India prior to 2000s.
- b)Both countries share a rich past.
- c)Both countries have been benefiting from each other economically
- d)and India have signed deals on renewable energy
