Which Country recently test fired Pukguksong-3, a new type of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on 2 October?

[A]. Russia
[B]. Japan
[C]. North Korea
[D]. South Korea

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

North Korea successfully test-fired Pukguksong-3, a new type of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on 2 October. State-run Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said that the new-type ballistic missile was fired in a vertical mode in the waters off the eastern city of Wonsan.

Nirav Chavda said: (Oct 4, 2019)  
On October 2, North Korea conducted an underwater launch of its new Pukguksong-3 submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) off the coast of Wonsan. The two-stage, solid-fuel missile flew on a steep, upward trajectory, reaching a peak altitude of 950 km, and landing about 450 km from the launch point. If the Pukguksong-3 had used a standard trajectory, it would have overflown Japan and covered 1,900 to 2,000 km, making it the longest-range solid-fuel missile North Korea has tested to date.
