a. Turn out denotes the percentage of eligible voters who cast their vote.
b. In India, the poor and the illiterate people vote very rarely.
c. People, including in India, usually bring pressure on political parties.


ANSWER

a and c


SOLUTION
People’s participation in election is usually measured by voter turnout figures.  Over the last fifty years, the turnout in Europe and North America has declined. In India, the turnout has either remained stable or actually gone up. 
In India, the poor, illiterate and underprivileged people vote in larger proportion as compared to the rich and privileged sections. This is in contrast to western democracies. For example in the United States of America, poor people, African Americans and Hispanics vote much less than the rich and the white people.
