Read the following passage and answer the (17 to 21 Questions)
Two hundred years after Malthus predicted that population growth would overtake food production by a margin of 256 to 9, the simple fact is that food production had always been ahead of the population growth. Malthus doomsday prediction simply did not come true due to two major reasons: first, population did not grow geometrially and birth rates in all western countries fell during 20th century, resulting in very slow nonulation growth. Over the past quarter century, birth rates have been falling in the developing countries too. Second, modern agricultural practices and better irrigation have resulted in tremendous growth in food production in almost all parts of the globe, with notable exception of Sub-Saharan Africa. Therefore, at the global level, the Malthusian doomsday never befell on us.
India’s population grew by about two and a half times in the past 45 years from 361 million in 1951 to an estimated 916 million in 1995. But during the same period, India’s food grain production grew by nearly four times from 51 million tonnes in 1951 to 191 million tonnes in 1995.
