Please clarify the question number - 6 answer about Gini coefficient because Gini coefficient 35 means india has lesser income inequality than buthan.

I made mistake there. India has more ewuality than bhutan. Gini coefficient can theoretically range from 0 (complete equality) to 1 (complete inequality); 
on gini coefficient......0 is equal 1 is unequal....so on 35 means india have more equality
