a. Mexico
b. China
c. India
d. Colombia

ANSWER: Mexico
Mexicans still dominate the overall composition of immigrants in the US, accounting for more than a quarter of the foreign-born people. But of the 1.2 million newly arrived immigrants in the US, legally and illegally counted in the 2013 census, China led with one lakh and 47 thousand, followed by India with one lakh and 29 thousand and Mexico with 125,000.

Immigrants from China and India have overtaken Mexicans as the largest groups coming into the United States. The shift has been building for more than a decade and experts say it's bringing more highly skilled immigrants in the US.
