i don't think option A is right becoz unless indian economy will not grow how can the standard of middle class society will go up.in my opinion B is correct.

Yes you are right.

Absolutely, option b is right.

Re@ Kalim, Roshan, Tarun

Friends.
Our views may vary, but in exam we have to follow only active mindset "society is for people".

1)NO NATION CAN BUILD ECONOMY ON ITS OWN UNTIL PEOPLE INVOLVE.
2)ECONOMY IS SURELY A DEPENDENT VARIANT OF SOCIETY.

In this perspective, Option A suits, and this is the way the examiner also justifies the answer.

If we go with our specified view , we may loss a mark.
As you know "cause & effect","strong & weak", "Implicity & explicity", " Truthfulness of Statement " these all fall under this same category of "Point-of-View Variatio".

I think its B. Indian economy is the CAUSE for the EFFECT in standard of living.

This is quite confusing.

Growth in economy affects the way of living, but the reverse may or may not be true.

China has a better economy growth than India still the standard of living of people is not better than India so Im ny view option A is right.
