The correct option is D
1, 2, and 3

Explanation:

The Indus valley civilization had a diverse subsistence base including agriculture,trade and commerce and craft production.The Harappans cultivated a wide range of crops including wheat, barley, lentil, chickpea and sesame and cotton.

Animal bones found at Harappan sites include those of cattle, sheep, goat, buffalo and pig. Studies done by archaeo-zoologists or zooarchaeologists indicate that these animals were domesticated.Archaeologists have also found evidence of a ploughed field at Kalibangan (Rajasthan), associated with Early Harappan levels.The field had two sets of furrows at right angles to each other, suggesting that two different crops were grown together
