Test: India - Size and Location- Assertion-Reason & Case Based Type Questions - Question 1

Directions : In the questions given below, there are two statements marked as Assertion (A) and Reason (R). Read the statements and choose the correct option.

Assertion (A) : The Indian Ocean is named after India.

Reason (R) : India has a strategic location along the trans-Indian Ocean routes.

Detailed Solution for Test: India - Size and Location- Assertion-Reason & Case Based Type Questions - Question 1

The Indian landmass has a central location between East and West Asia. India is a southward extension of the Asian continent. The trans Indian Ocean routes which connect the countries of Europe in the West to the countries of East Asia provide a strategic central location to India. The Deccan peninsula protrudes into the Indian Ocean, thus helping India to establish close contact with West Asia, Africa and Europe from the Western coast and South-East and East Asia from the Eastern coast. No other country has a long coastline on the Indian Ocean as India has. Thus, India's eminent position in the Indian Ocean justifies the naming of an ocean after it.

Reason (R) : It is located far down south of the country.

Detailed Solution for Test: India - Size and Location- Assertion-Reason & Case Based Type Questions - Question 2

Kanyakumari is located near the equator whereas Kashmir is located far away from the equator.
