Differentiate between seasonal hunger and chronic hunger?


SOLUTION
Seasonal hunger is the hunger that cycles around the harvest and sowing season of seasonal activities like agriculture. Seasonal hunger is found in rural areas in some cases and in urban areas also. This type of hunger exists when a person is unable to get work for the entire year.
Chronic hunger is the hunger that results due to diets persistently inadequate in the quality and/or quantity. Chronic hunger is found generally in urban areas. Poor people suffer from chronic hunger because of their low income and in turn inability to buy food even for survival.
