Consider the following animals:

  1. Pigs
  2. Goats
  3. Dogs
  4. Horses

 Which of the above were surely domesticated by the Harappan People?

Answer: [A] 1, 2 & 3 Only

The Indus Valley or Harappan People domesticated animals like oxen, buffaloes, pigs, goats and sheep. Camels and asses were used as means of transport. Dogs and cats were kept as pets. The humped bull was considered a great asset in the farming community. Horse remains have been found at only one site i.e at Surkotada.So there is no clear evidence of Horse domestication by the Harappan people.
