Solution

The correct option is D Fixed quantities of essential commodities are provided to poor people.
The government provides goods to the poor and needy. The system works systematically through three different components. First, the essential commodities are procured from farmers at a pre-announced price. Second, the commodities are stocked in storage houses. Third, the commodities are distributed in fixed quantities to poor people at a concessional price through fair price shops.
