Note: In the official answer key, the answer given is C. 

Explanation:  Agricultural productivity is measured as the ratio of agricultural outputs to agricultural inputs.

Indian agriculture is already facing a problem of disguised unemployment. If we shift workers from industry to agriculture, it will further enhance the problem of disguised unemployment without affecting the productivity. Therefore option C cannot be the right answer.

Around 51% of India’s geographical area is under cultivation. Of the cultivated area, only 35% is under irrigation. 65% of the net sown area is dependent on rainfall. Bringing more and more area under irrigation will definitely increase the productivity of Indian agriculture. Hence the right answer is B.
