Solution:The given passage gives a glimpse on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster and the events that followed by it. After carefully going through the passage, we can conclude that only option (a) and (c) are correct.
Option (a): To validate the point, refer last passage: “Since the United Nations agencies have shifted their focus from humanitarian assistance to prevention, recovery, remediation and capacity development, an integrated approach to sustainable development was adopted to address the needs of the affected regions and communities.”
Option (b): This sentence can be negated by “On 8 December 2016 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution designating 26 April as International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day”
Option (c): This sentence can be validated by referring first passage: “An explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 1986 spread a radioactive cloud over large parts of the Soviet Union, now the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Nearly 8.4 million people in the three countries were exposed to the radiation. The Soviet Government acknowledged the need for international assistance only in 1990.”
