b. 3,4,5,6
c. 2,5,6
d. All

ANSWER: 2,5,6
Manipur is the only state in the northeastern region of India that is free from slums despite having been reported to contain slums in previous records in the past. According to the 2001 Census, Arunachal Pradesh has been regarded to be a slum free state earlier whereas this is not the case anymore. Manipur, along with Daman & Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Lakshadweep have not reported any slums in the 2011 Census.
