Correct Answer - Option 2 : Mahgara

The neolithic period defines the last stage of the stone age from 8000 BC to 4,000 BC.

  • It is the period where humans started using polished stone tools and cultivated plants.
  • Different tools were made from stones and bones for sowing, tilling the land, and harvesting crops.
  • The man started the concept of family and formed villages.
  • Man domesticated different animals like cattle, pigs, chickens, and dogs.
  • In Gangetic plain, two neolithic sites were excavated which are Koldihwa and Mahagara.

In Mahagara, evidence of cattle domestication was discovered.

  • A large circular pen for keeping the cattle was found in Mahagara near the huts.
  • Several animal bones were excavated from Mahagara near the central pen.
  • At Koldihwa, traces of domestic rice were found.

Hence, we can conclude that a cattle pen was found in Mahagara.
