When will India pass China? India, the world's second largest country, had a population of 1.21 billion. India was

expected to pass China by 2030, when it would have more than 1.53 billion people. China's population then would be just 1.46 billion. The article noted that India's growth rate of %1.6 per year doubles its population in less than 44 years.

A) is this article correct in stating that an annual growth rate of 1.6% means India's population will double in 44 years?

B) Assuming that India's growth rate remains 1.6% annually, what will it's population be in 2030 when it surpasses China's?

C) Assuming that India's growth rate remains 1.6% annually from 2011 on, what will it's population be in the year 2100? Compare that figure to the current population of the world. Do you think India's growth rate can in fact continue at 1.6% for the 89 years from 2011 to 2100?
