They is used for living and those is used for non-living. So answer should be those.

I think the correct answer should be "That", because here the only statement "grown. (3.Along). The banks of the river Indus" is mentioned in ancient books. Since we are using "those" for the plural and growing of watermelon is only one thing which is stated, so the answer should be "that".

"That" is the correct answer.
