Solution

The correct option is D
The upper town was larger than the lower town.

Explanation:

The Indus valley civilization is known for its advanced town planning.Excavations at all the Major cities like Harappa,Mohenjodaro, Kalibangan and Lothal have yielded detailed town planning and a uniform approach to construction of towns.

The town is usually divided into two sections, one smaller but higher and the other much larger but lower. Archaeologists designate these as the Citadel and the Lower Town respectively. The Citadel owes its height to the fact that buildings were constructed on mud brick platforms. Several buildings were built on platforms, which served as foundations. Other aspects of town planning in the Indus valley include criss crossed roads, use of baked bricks, well laid out drainage network.
