ANSWER

Bengal


SOLUTION

The most devastating famine that occurred in India was the famine of Bengal in 1943, which took away many lives. There was a threat of famine, but after 1902 there was no major famine in India until the Bengal famine of 1943. This famine was the most devastating; between 2.5 and 3 million people died during World War II. The famine resulted in two-three million deaths. The 1943 Bengal famine, which is estimated to have caused over three million deaths, resulted not from a drought as is widely thought but from the British government's policy failures, option ‘a’ is correct answer.
