Solution

The correct option is D Mumbai-Pune Industrial Region
'X' is the Mumbai-Pune Industrial Region. One of the primary problems while establishing this region was the transportation of coal from the distant mines of Bihar, Jharkhand, and Bengal. However, this problem was solved with the production of hydroelectricity in the Western Ghats region. Today, most of India's textile industries are located in this region, along with various other industries like chemical, petrochemical, engineering, shipbuilding, electrical, transport, food processing, as well as pharmaceutical industries.
