Consider the following pairs: 1. Kamarajar Port : First major port in India registered as a company 2. Mundra Port : Largest privately owned port in India 3. Visakhapatnam: Largest container port in India

How many of the above pairs are correctly matched?
(a) Only one pair
(b) Only two pairs
(c) All three pairs
(d) None of the pairs


Let’s verify each pair:

  1. Kamarajar Port: This port, also known as Ennore Port, is located in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is indeed the first port in India which was registered as a company. This pair is correctly matched.
  2. Mundra Port: Located in the state of Gujarat, Mundra Port is the largest private port in India. It’s owned by Adani Ports & SEZ Ltd. This pair is also correctly matched.
  3. Visakhapatnam: Located in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Visakhapatnam is a significant port. However, as of 2021, it is not the largest container port in India. The Jawaharlal Nehru Port (also known as Nhava Sheva), located in Maharashtra, holds that distinction. So, this pair is not correctly matched.

Hence, two pairs are correctly matched.

The answer is: (b) Only two pairs
