Explanation:
The correct reasons behind the wide gap between the inflation at WPI and CPI in the country are:
1. Different tracking: WPI tracks bulk transactions of producers, while CPI tracks demands at the retail level. This means that the two indices may track different sets of goods and services, leading to differences in inflation rates.
2. Varying weight diagram: The weight diagram of the two series varies significantly. This means that the importance given to different goods and services in calculating the inflation rate may differ between WPI and CPI, leading to variations in the inflation rates.
3. Different base years: The base years of WPI and CPI are not similar. The base year is the year against which the price changes are compared. Different base years can result in different inflation rates.
4. Inclusion of services: CPI includes services, while they are not included in WPI. The prices of services have gone up in recent times, which can contribute to the divergence between the inflation rates calculated by WPI and CPI.
Therefore, the correct answer is option D: 1, 2, 3, and 4.
