Solution

  • In developed countries, there is the development of industries, infrastructure, and trade.
  • Therefore, more people are engaged in secondary, tertiary, and quaternary activities.
  • These countries replace human labour with machinery. So agricultural activities can be carried out with minimum people and can use machinery.
  • Therefore, the percentage of the population engaged in agriculture is low in developed countries.
