Question

Which of the following statement(s) is/are incorrect regarding the Indian forest dwellers?
  1. Shared a special bond with the forests
  2. Sold trees for profit
  3. Cleared forest for cultivation
  4. Were left to their own devices by kings


Solution

The correct option is B Sold trees for profit
The forest dwellers traded forest produce such as salt and iron, but they did not cut trees and sell its wood for profit. Although the adivasis cleared forests for cultivation, it was done in a more sustainable way - they left large areas of forest cover untouched.
