Solution :-

(i) Human poverty is a term that means that poverty in India is not just limited to the economic status of the people but rather spreads in various other sectors which include lack of education, negligence of health care system, discrimination, and disparity. Abolishing poverty from the country should no be the only aim of the authorities but abolishing human poverty must be the aim.

(ii) Women, female infants, and the elderly are considered to be the poorest of the poor. This is because, in a poor household, these people suffer the most and are deprived of the maximum necessities in life.

(iii) The main features of the National Rural Employment Act 2005 are as follows:

1. To provide 100 days of wage employment to every household to ensure livelihood security

2. Sustainable development to address the cause of drought, deforestation, and soil erosion.

3. One-third of the proposed jobs under this scheme have been reserved for women
