Rinki Gajbhiye said: (Apr 10, 2012)  
Why the answer is telecommunication?

Laxman said: (May 9, 2012)  
In my view telecommunication is a right answer because service sector consists of so many services in which foreign investment is comparitively less. So telecommunication is right answer.

Vinutha said: (Jun 2, 2012)  
Telecommunication comes under service sector.

Mann said: (Jul 6, 2012)  
According to me service sector is the answer because telecommunication comes under service sector.

Ankit said: (Jul 12, 2012)  
I agree with aditya. As the growth of FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) is considered under service sector answer should be service sector.

Sandhya said: (Sep 25, 2012)  
The service sector has attracted highest (21 per.
Cent) FDI inflows; then Computer software, and hardware (9 per cent) , telecommunication sector (8 percent) and Housing and Real estate (7 per cent) during 2008 to August 2010.

Manika said: (Aug 12, 2013)  
The answer should be service sector and telecom services is on the 3rd number according to a magazine.

Amit said: (Aug 12, 2013)  
It's not a correct answer because it should be services sector with total percentage of 19% which is far more than Telecommunications (radio paging, cellular mobile, basic telephone services) with total percentage of 7%.

Sumit K.C said: (Aug 31, 2013)  
Service sector is the right answer because telecommunication sector comes under it.

Babul said: (Sep 13, 2013)  
What is economic reform?

Laukik said: (Sep 15, 2013)  
Answer is (b) service sector because telecommunication is not under service sector and 19. 99% at this rate growth in last one decade and telecommunication at 7%.

Vikash Singh Chauhan said: (Oct 31, 2013)  
According to 2012 and 2013 how telecommunication in top yes it was but last 3-5 year back.

Yah @Vaidhyanathan is saying very true that the telecommunication is part of service sector then how can vary to each other. Please.

Shashank Shekhar said: (Dec 13, 2013)  
Well actually the answer is telecommunication. It, being a part of service sector and helping in max FDI.

Animesh said: (Feb 5, 2014)  
The question is pertaining to " LAST ONE DECADE". We should have accurate data.

Prom S D Raut said: (Sep 17, 2014)  
The rate of FDI in telecommunication is 100%.

Gurunath Kwati said: (Nov 8, 2014)  
Question is that in last one decade which sector has attracted the highest FDI inflow into India, so service sector was there before last 10 years and also it's attraction has just increased in last one decade but FDI on telecommunication is more than among any other sector in the last one decade hence answer is telecommunication.

Here need to consider through relative growth in of service sector and telecommunication in terms of FDI.

Karan said: (Dec 28, 2014)  
Can anyone tell me that it (FDI inflows) is a good thing or a bad thing?

Arvind said: (Apr 27, 2015)  
I think it should be service sector.

Vardhman said: (Aug 12, 2015)  
I also think it should be service sector as one can see the major changes in tourism telecom and other departments of service and has created a bullish trend.

Mukesh Solanki said: (Oct 25, 2015)  
@Gurunath Kwati you are right.

Correct answer is telecommunication as per last one year decade.

Pooja said: (Jan 5, 2016)  
Is it Vodafone made in foreign not in India?

Sandeep said: (May 19, 2016)  
According to me the question is wrong.

Telecommunication is one which comes under service sector tertiary sector, then how the answer should be a Telecommunication.

Sunil Prusty said: (Sep 6, 2016)  
The answer is Service Sector because Telecommunication is a part of the Service sector.

Kishore Kahyap said: (Nov 7, 2016)  
If it asked for the last decade then telecommunication is the correct choice but if it is asked for the recent time service sector attracts highest FDI. In many reports, I have noticed FDI in the service sector and telecommunication is shown with different values.

Mounika said: (Nov 22, 2016)  
According to me;

Service sector is the correct answer.

Reason :1) In the question specified " following sector".

2) We have only 3 sectors and namely primary, secondary and tertiary (service) sector. Therefore telecommunication comes under service sector.

Pooja said: (Nov 26, 2016)  
You are right @Mounika.

But I think if you have broad as well as specified sector in your options one must answer with the more specified sector.

Priya said: (Dec 11, 2016)  
I think it needs to be service sector.

Pardeep Kaur said: (Jan 21, 2018)  
I think telecommunication is the part of service sector and service sector have high fdi.

Sindhura Reddy said: (Mar 12, 2018)  
Food processing is the transformation of cooked ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms. It a process in which shelf life of fruits and vegetables are increased like jams and jellies, or squash, juices etc.

Shivakumar said: (Jul 19, 2018)  
The telecommunication sector has recieved higher the FDI in 2016-17 year but in the last decade (15 year history 2010-15) FDI inflow is in service sector only.
