Solution

The correct option is B Madhya Pradesh
Tropical rain forests occur over equatorial or sub equatorial regions with abundant warmth and rainfall (200-350 cms/ year) almost throughout the year. The forests are impenetrable with maximum diversity. Productivity is also maximum. Standing crop biomass is highest. Soil is highly leached due to heavy rains and is therefore poor in nutrients.
In India these forests are most common in Western Ghats, some parts of Eastern Himalayas e.g., Assam region and Andamans. Some parts of West Bengal and Tamil Nadu also show scattered rain forests. They are entirely absent in peninsular Indian states, which are a plateau area, e.g., Madhya Pradesh.
