India is an important member of the 'International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor'. If this experiment succeeds, what is the immediate advantage for India?
(a) It can use thorium in place of uranium for power generation
(b) It can attain a global role in satellite navigation
(c) It can drastically improve the efficiency of its fission reactors in power generation
(d) It can build fusion reactors for power generation

ITER is a multinational project aimed at demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. Fusion reactors generate energy by combining light atomic nuclei, such as isotopes of hydrogen, under high temperature and pressure, mimicking the process that powers the sun.

It's worth noting that while the immediate advantage for India would be the potential to build fusion reactors, the commercial deployment of fusion energy on a large scale is still a long-term goal that requires further research, development, and technological advancements.
