  3. The maximum amount (%) of calcium is found in:
    1. Milk

Answer and Explanation:

  1. 3). Milk Production: Operation Flood was an initiative launched by the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) in India in 1970. Its primary goal was to create a nationwide milk grid. This program effectively linked rural milk producers with urban markets, thereby increasing milk production and boosting the rural economy through dairy farming.
  2. 1). A-1, B-2, C-3, D-4: This correct matching of programmes and their start years aligns with the historical setup of these initiatives. The Organization of Dairy and Animal Husbandry Department was established in 1991, the Technology Mission on Dairy Development started in 1988, the Cattle Insurance Yojana began in 1974, and the National Dairy Development Board in Anand was set up in 1987.
  3. 4). 281 g: In the year 2010-11, the per capita per day milk availability in India was 281 grams. This reflects the successful outcomes of various dairy development programmes, including Operation Flood, which significantly contributed to increased milk production and availability.
  4. 1). Mare x Ass: A mule is the hybrid offspring of a male donkey (ass) and a female horse (mare). This combination is valued for the mule's durable attributes, which include stamina and resilience, traits inherited from its parents that are beneficial for working in challenging terrains.
  5. 4). Cheese: Among the options listed, cheese typically has the highest calcium content. Cheese is a concentrated dairy product and as such, it retains more of the nutrients from milk, including calcium, which is essential for bone health and structural bodily functions.
  6. 4). 2007: The 18th Livestock Census in India was conducted in 2007. This comprehensive count provides critical data for planning and implementing animal husbandry and agricultural policies across the country.
