Solution

The correct option is A shifting cultivation
Primitive subsistence agriculture is also known as shifting cultivation or slash and burn cultivation. In this type of farming, a patch of land is cleared and then set on fire. This patch of land is used to sow seeds and grow crops. As fertilisers and modern inputs like tractors and harvesting machineries are not used, land productivity is low in primitive subsistence farming.
