Answer: Option C. -> 1 only
Answer: (c)
Ideal climatic conditions to grow coffee are related to temperature and rainfall; temperatures in the range of 73°F (23°C) and 82°F (28°C) with rainfall incidence in the range of 60–80 inches (1.5-2.0 m) followed by a dry spell of 2-3 months suit the Arabica variety.
Cold temperatures closer to freezing conditions are not suitable to grow coffee. Where the rainfall is less than 40 inches (1.0 m), providing irrigation facilities is essential.
In the tropical region of the south Indian hills, these conditions prevail leading to coffee plantations flourishing in large numbers whereas tea can be cultivated in both tropical and subtropical areas. Tea plants are propagated from seed and by cuttings; it takes about 4 to 12 years for a tea plant to bear seed, and about three years before a new plant is ready for harvesting.
