Solution

The correct option is A

Disguised unemployment


Disguised unemployment is a situation where more people are involved in a production activity than actually required. On account of joint family system in India, small size of holdings and lack of alternative avenues of employment, all members of the farmer's family keep themselves occupied with the cultivation of family farm. Thus, apparently all members appear to be employed whereas in reality some are not contributing anything to total production.
