Question :

 

In which one of the following states is terrace cultivation practised?

 

A. Punjab 

B. Plains of Uttar Pradesh

C. Haryana 

D. Uttarakhand

 

Answer : D. Uttarakhand

 

Explanation

 

Terrace cultivation is a form of farming in which land is divided into a series of steps or terraces, with each level used for growing crops. This type of cultivation is typically practiced in areas with steep slopes or hilly terrain, as it helps to prevent erosion and soil loss due to water run-off. Terracing also allows farmers to make use of land that would otherwise be unsuitable for cultivation, and can increase the amount of land available for farming.
