Answer #1

The Gini index is a simple measure of the distribution of income across income percentiles in a population.

It is often used as a gauge of economic inequality, measuring income distribution or, less commonly, wealth distribution among a population. The coefficient ranges from 0 (or 0%) to 1 (or 100%), with 0 representing perfect equality and 1 representing perfect inequality.

Hence lower index means more equal distribution so Nation (c) would be the correct answer.
