I and III
II and III
I, II and III
The correct option is C II and III The first phase of demographic transition experience low growth rate as both birth and death rates are high. The second phase marks beginning of industrialization causing a fast decline in death rate and slow decline in birth rate. The overall effect is increased the growth rate of population. The third phase of transition marks peak industrialization, migration of population from rural areas to town and cities causing a decline in birth rate and lowered population growth rate. The last phase is marked by negative population growth rate as birth rate decline below the death rate causing reduced population size.
