Solution

The correct option is A Terrace farming
Terrace farming is practised to cultivate crops along the slopes. In terrace farming, broad and flat steps are carved out along steep slopes. The flatland thus created is used for cultivation of crops. It reduces the speed of water and amount of surface runoff.
