Out of the following remains excavated in Indus Valley, which one indicates the commercial and economic development ?



[ A ]    The Pottery
[ B ]    Seals right
[ C ]    The boats
[ D ]    The houses
Answer : Option B
Explanation :
The seals of the Indus Valley Civilization have been one of the major sources for information about the period. Apart from giving plethora of informations about the social and religious life of the period, they give insight into the economic activities. The economy of the Indus civilization was based on a highly organized agriculture, supplemented by an active commerce, probably connected to that of the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia. Trade amongst the civilizations is suggested by the finding of hundreds of small seals, supposedly produced by the Indus peoples, at the excavation sites of ancient Mesopotamian cities that were existent around the same time. Some of the seals mention the rulers of different countries.
