Solution

  • Socio-economic development of the country is measured by people's standard of living, the social status of females in society, educational facilities, and government policies.
  • The higher the literacy rate of women, the more women are educated and employed.
  • If the literacy rate is high, people are educated, employed, and well-settled. Owing to this, the standard of living becomes high.
  • If government policies favour education, educational institutes are more developed, and more people become educated and employed. This leads to a higher standard of living.
  • Thus, the literacy rate of countries is an indicator of their socio-economic development.
