Direction : Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

The historical experience of how country after country went from poverty to prosperity over the last two hundred years suggests that the transformation in each case was generally driven by one sector, which became the engine of the economy. In Britain it was textiles; in the US the industrial revolution was led by the railways, in today's language, the nation's competitive advantage emanates from its leading sector. Over the last fifty years India has struggled unsuccessfully to find its lead sector or its source of competitive advantage, and this explains, in part, its inability to create an industrial revolution. Now, it may have found it in the information or knowledge sectors of the economy.

US and Britain are the most prosperous countries in the world.
