This question was asked in very popular civil services examination.
Question is : Whether the following statement is correct or not? Statement : If a country is experiencing increase in its per-capita GDP, its GDP must necessarily be growing?
The approach I applied is that, in a country like Syria, if mass emigration happens then population will decrease and at the same time GDP might not decrease with same rate. so this statement will be false.
I know my assumption is not too correct, so ignoring that, please help me arrive in correct answer.
