The correct answer is Option D) More people moved to urban areas.As industrialization began to take place, more and more manufacturing jobs were created. Especially in the North-East of the country that was fast becoming a centre for the manufacture of textile products, steel, iron, construction products, machines, etc, there Was a great need for manual labor jobs in these factories and pay them a salary, which was much more than what an average farmer can earn.This led to millions of people move from rural areas and settling in cities.Within a few decades, the demographic composition of the country had changed. The cities now had many more people, many of who live in slums and bad conditions.
