Question

Read the passage below, and answer the questions that follow based on your understanding: (December)

Unlike the chalcolithic sites in Western and Central India those in the mid Ganga plains were not deserted. More than a dozen chalcolithic sites in Western and Central India show a sudden break in culture. They were deserted for 500 to 1000 years and reoccupied between the fifth and third century B. C. These include Ahar and Gilund in Rajasthan; Jokha, Dhatva and Prabhaspatan in Gujarat; Besnagar, Kayatha, Maheshwar and Navdatol in Madhya Pradesh and finally Jorwe, Nasik, Nevasa, Behal and Songaon in Maharashtra. Possibly the non-availability of iron and its technology ruled out any expansion of the old settlements after the exhaustion of the fertility of local soil. People did not face this difficulty in the mid-Ganga basin where several chalcolithic settlements grew into full-fledged iron age settlements.
