  1. 12 is wrong, unless your text is 10 years old. No other answers are right. B is almost right, but the wrong year, and the use of the word "colony".

    10 is a pitiful question. The Great leap forward was about Industrialization, and how to fund it. Agriculture was looked to be a cash cow to fund it, so agriculture and rural economies were squeezed tightly to get cash. B is only right if one considers the purpose of this was to allow the state to buy (at very low prices) the goods from the ag sector, then sell them (at inflated prices) back as foodstuffs, and to use the profit to fund industrialization. The author of this question has to be aware of this.

  3. It's hard to quantify "most." According the CIA World Factbook, 43% of China's workers are in agriculture, leaving the rest divided between services and manufacturing. Therefore, B must be correct.
