SECTION A

1. Read the passage given below and complete the sentences that follow by choosing the most appropriate options :

India is not alone in targeting its coastal areas for economic activities like ports, shrimp (a kind of shellfish used for food) farms, oil refineries, luxury hotels and holiday resorts. In a few years, nearly 80 per cent of the US population will be living within 50 miles of the coast. In India, too, coastal population is growing. The emergence of megacities along the sea is seen as the single greatest threat to the world’s coastal environment. Today, mangrove forests cover just 15.8 million hectares, and are declining at an assumed rate of 2 per cent every year. In the last few decades, feverish human activity has either destroyed or transformed nearly 50 per cent of the world’s total mangrove forest area. Mangroves are flowering plants, which grow on tidal coasts between the high and low water marks in clay and silt. They absorb the energy of waves and tidal surges, and act as a shield for the hinterland. Since mangrove areas are ideal for shrimp farms, they are being ‘colonized’ and mindlessly destroyed. India is among the top four shrimp exporters, with production growing at 15 per cent a year. But this has extracted its price. In the past 40 years, India is estimated to have lost half its mangrove forests, rendering states like Orissa and Andhra Pradesh vulnerable to the fury of cyclones.
