    Solution:

    The proportion of the total geographical area covered by forest in each of the five northeastern states was evaluated in 2019. The results were as follows:
  • Mizoram (85.41 per cent)
  • Arunachal Pradesh (79.63 per cent)
  • Meghalaya (76.33 per cent)
  • Manipur (75.46 per cent)
  • Nagaland (75.46 per cent) (75.31 per cent)
  • Orissa(39.31 per cent)

  • The amount of land covered by forests or other vegetation types in a nation or area is called the forest cover. The evaluation of forest cover considers any tree stands with a canopy density of more than 10 per cent and an area of more than one hectare. This includes tree orchards, bamboo groves, palm groves, and other similar types of vegetation found within recorded forests and on other government lands, private lands, community lands, and institutional lands. It encompasses all parcels of property that meet the necessary specifications for the presence of trees, irrespective of who owns the land, their legal standing, or the species makeup of the trees.
    The correct should be that Arunachal Pradesh has 79.63 percent and Orissa has 39.31 percent forest cover
