Statements: The percentage of the national income shared by the top 10 per cent of households in India is 35.

Conclusions:

1. When an economy grows fast, concentration of wealth in certain pockets of population takes place.
2. The national income is unevenly distributed in India.

 [A]. Only conclusion I follows [B]. Only conclusion II follows [C]. Either I or II follows [D]. Neither I nor II follows [E]. Both I and II follow
