Due to the profit involved in this business as it is clearly mentioned in the paragraph that people become millionare in a night the paragrah best supports the message.

Smugglers are becoming Millionares overnight and even due to income tax raids and seizures their losses are meagre. The paragraph clearly describes the message that the smugglers are in huge profits always.

Smuggling is the easy way to earn money and people become millonaires in a night due to huge profit.The paragraph explain it

Aabi said: (Oct 16, 2011)  
The paragraph mainly focused about the profits attained by the smugglers over a night because of the vast coastal area of our country.

"There is no doubt, that from time to time certain seizures were made by the enforcement authorities, during raids and ambush but even allowing these losses the smugglers made huge profits."
The pargraph will have proved confidently that (c) is not correct since if the measures had to be strict then smuggling in the country would have ended with people smuggling not attaining any profits but losses.

The passage is all about smugglers attracted to get huge profits so its quiet clear that smuggling is prevailing over years so that if the authorities are strict India would have been like Malaysia where authorities so strict towards drugs.

Srinu said: (Dec 9, 2013)  
Just see this situation in our country now. No one is stopping them not upto limits. Day by day their becoming millionaires. So option D is perfect for this.

G.Pathak said: (Feb 19, 2014)  
For option A & B - nothing is mentioned like it is hampering the national economy. Option C - even after taking some action by the authorities, they are still making profits.

So only option D is the correct answer.

Smuggling is fast increasing in our country owing to the quick profit it entails.

Ali said: (Mar 12, 2015)  
I think "C" should be the answer because if we see it logically the result of this passage guides us the actions of the government that are being taken by the government.

Palak Purohit said: (Mar 28, 2017)  
Sometime it might happen the smugglers faced some loss but that is small in front of the profit they get from smuggling that is why it growing in nation.

Shivansh said: (Apr 12, 2017)  
Yes, it is correct. It is clearly mentioned that these smugglers are becoming millionaire only in a night.

Ram Kumar said: (Mar 1, 2019)
