All sentences are true.
Correct Option is Following the footsteps of China, India successfully solicited the inclusion of kabaddi, polo and some of the games where it has a history of excellence.
Solution:Among the given options, only option(c) is incorrect with reference to the context of the passage. To validate the answer, Option (a): refer first paragraph of the passage “The Tokyo Olympic Games are over, and the Japanese people and government have heaved a sigh of relief that the spectacle passed without a major Covid-19 outbreak in the athletes’ village or other disasters.” Option (b): refer third paragraph “Whereas China has systematically strived for Olympic success since it re-entered global athletic competition after years of isolation, India has remained complacent about its lack of sporting prowess.” Option (c): refer last paragraph “But India has not even lobbied successfully for the inclusion in the Games of the few sports it does play well, such as kabaddi (a form of tag-team wrestling), polo, or cricket, which was played in the 1900 Olympics and never since”. Thus, it is the incorrect statement. Option (d): refer last paragraph “China’s budget for preparing its athletes for the Tokyo Games alone probably exceeded India’s expenditure on all Olympic training in the last 70 years”.
