Solution

## The correct option is C <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> Regional inequality<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> The majority of the population residing in metropolitan cities has access to better hospitals, employment, good roads, transport systems, clean drinking water, educational facilities, industries, and many other luxuries of life. People living in rural areas do not have access to all these facilities. This type of inequality is termed as regional inequality.
