Demographics - South Asian

So, I'm Indian/South Asian (from India, the country, not Native Indian there's a lot of confusion whenever I introduce myself as Indian), and I'm unsure what option to check for the demographics section in the chancing calculator. Right now, I've checked 'Other', but I'm sure that's not giving me accurate results based on my demographic. What do I do?

East Asia/South Asia(India) are for the purpose of the chancing engine Asian. Indians and Chinese are typically the demographics with the most hurdles to admission at competitive schools.
