Solution

The correct option is C Laurasia
Millions of years ago, India as we know it, was not a part of Asia as it is today. The world was a large single landmass called Pangea which slowly broke, forming two super landmasses called Gondwana and Laurasia. The Indian subcontinent was a part of Gondwana in the Southern Hemisphere. Because of the internal forces of the Earth, Gondwana broke further. The Indo-Australian plate separated from Gondwana and started drifting northwards and collided with another plate known as the Eurasian plate.
