[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: C
Notes:
Faster Process and Dense Forest: This method creates mini forests. They grow 10 times faster and become 30 times denser and 100 times more biodiverse than those planted through conventional methods.(Statement 1 is correct)
  • Faster Regeneration of Land: Miyawaki forests are designed to regenerate land in far less time. It takes over 70 years for a forest to recover on its own.
