Answer:

After observing Graph 2 and 3 given in the chapter, we can conclude :

Table 2.2 Share of Primary Sector in GOP and Employment

1973-74 1977-78 2013-14 2017-18
Share in GDP 40% 12%
Share in Employment 74% 49%

The share of the primary sector in GDP has decreased in 40 years. This means that the participation of the secondary sector and tertiary sector has increased. The participation of the primary sector in employment has also decreased but this rate has been slow. The participation of the secondary sector and tertiary sector has increased more during this period.
