The answer is C. This means that more people are unemployed or underemployed. Subsistence Agriculture means that farmers only grow enough food to feed their families. Not grow more food to sell. This is a sign of a less developed country, because the members of the family are using their time and resources to take care of themselves and are not working outside of the home. Therefore, they will be unemployed or underemployed.
