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".

@Prashant.

The statement is about the growth of standard of living and not about standard of living. (read the statement, it says "going up"). So your example of china is probably not relevant here because nevertheless the standard of living in china is going up however slow or fast it maybe.

This is because of the rapid growth in Chinese economy. In context of all other countries direct relationship between growth in economy and growth in standard of living is quite evident. (better growth in economy, better growth in solution) same is true for India. So B is definitely correct.

Op B.

Because.

There are 3 main factors that drive economic growth:
Accumulation of capital stock.
Increases in labor inputs, such as workers or hours worked.

So, when a nation's eco grow, money comes in people's hand & that's when their standard of living improved.

Growth of an economy means GDP growth. GDP means value of whatever is being produced in that country. Value will be more if quantity is more. Quantity will be high if demand is more. So ultimately it is the people who determine demands.

That's why option A is correct.

I think Option B is correct.

If our economic conditions is not improved then how can our living conditions can be improved? ?

Like without good amount of money how will I buy a good apartment?

So, Economy is the cause of improved living condition.

Why should only the middle class be considered? What about the lower class- the farmers and manual labourers. I think the development of the Indian economy also depends on the development of the lower classes as well. All factors must be considered.

In my opinion, option A will be the answer because recently due to demonisation people have less purchasing power so law standard of living law.

Demand and ultimately law growth.

If we think that the standard of living increases the need of people, resulting in manufacturing more product, i.e. more industry and hence economic growth. So answer is A.

Mohd kalim said:   1 decade ago
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.

Kanwal said:   2 years ago
I think A would be the right answer because if society will not update or grow then how could the GDP grow.

If a man makes his aim so society runs.
