# The earliest arrivals in India are believed to be Negritos. At present which of the following places they are mainly found?

Andaman Islands

##### SOLUTION
Andaman Island,
The Negrito are among the several different ethnic groups who inhabit isolated parts of a region known today as Austronesia. Their current populations include the Andamanese peoples of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Semang and Batek peoples of Peninsular Malaysia, the Maniq people of Southern Thailand, and the Aeta people, Ati people, and 30 other officially recognized ethnic groups in the Philippines.

Based on their physical similarities, Negritos were once considered a single population of related people. Recent research, however, suggests that they comprise separate groups, as well as demonstrating that they are not closely related to the Pygmies of Africa.
