Is this the correct answer, can someone clarify it ?

Tanisha said: (Dec 14, 2011)  
No it is not correct, the right answer is C. Read the last sentence of the passage.

Vivek said: (Jul 15, 2013)  
It should be "those who did believe in the industrialisation of the country".

Farheen said: (May 19, 2014)  
I suppose it should have been 'those who inherited political powers after independence' I am concluding this from the last sentence of the paragraph.

Prayesh said: (Aug 6, 2014)  
Option A is correct, its confusing though as they have used negative sentences. For instance, it may stand for:

"Mahatma Gandhi's dream of 'an idyllic and rural paradise' was shared by those who did believe in the industrialisation of the country".

Shatabda Dhar Gupta said: (Oct 30, 2014)  
Option A is incorrect as Mahatma Gandhi never believed Industrialization could solve problem of poor.

Also any one believing in Industrialization will oppose Mahatma Gandhi's view. Hence the Best answer possible is Option C.

M Kedar said: (Mar 1, 2015)  
The last line in the passage tells that C is the right option.

Kiran Mahesh said: (Mar 28, 2015)  
I think the answer is C. "Those who inherited political powers after independence".

Sammy said: (Apr 26, 2015)  
Mathani Gandhi believed in the industrialization of the country but industrialization was no answer to the problems that plagued the India's poor and the last sentence says "such an idyllic and rural paradise did not appear " not "was not shared " so the correct answer is A not C.

Suramya Vyas said: (Oct 11, 2015)  
Mahatma Gandhi thought that industrialization is not the solution to the problems so he does not support industrialization the correct answer is C I guess.

Ghazi said: (Nov 18, 2015)  
I also got confused. Apparently option 'C' is the right answer but @Prayesh is right.

If we compare both option A & C. We would see that A is comparatively a better option.

Srinu said: (Jun 30, 2016)  
The correct answer must be "C" It is clearly stated in the last sentence of the paragraph.

Koby said: (Jul 30, 2016)  
Option C must be the correct answer as it is evident in the paragraph. Now let me go against the odds. Considering option A as the right answer is illogical, I mean it is not mentioned anywhere that those who did not believe in the industrialisation of the country did not share Mahatma Gandhi's dream.

Ayushma said: (Feb 20, 2017)  
No, you are wrong @Prayesh.

Because "idyllic and rural paradise" and industrialisation of the country are two opposite thoughts. It is imperative that the answer be C. Moreover, it is so mentioned in the paragraph, line.

Another correction-- it should be appeal and not appear.

Bakhtiar said: (Jul 5, 2017)  
The answer is A. Because if you see it carefully not shared by Gandhi views. It is totally opposite of Gandhi.

Deepak said: (May 19, 2018)  
Such an idyllic and rural paradise did not appear to those who inherited the reins of political power. The answer should be C.

A is definitely not the answer because 'Mahatma Gandhi believed that industrialisation was no answer to the problems that plague the mass of India's poor and that villagers should be taught to be self-sufficient', so Mahatma Gandhi did not believe in industrialization, hence those who did not believe in the industrialisation of the country can NOT Share the dream. Whereas the last line clearly backs C.

Javed said: (Oct 26, 2018)  
As per my knowledge, option C is correct.

Gajanan said: (Jan 14, 2019)  
From the last line: "Such an idyllic and rural paradise did not appear to those who inherited the reins of political power. ".

C is the correct answer.
