with respect to question 9 The Nawab of Awadh was the first to enter into such an alliance after the battle of Buxar 1764. Tipu Sultan of Mysore refused to do so, but after the British victory in the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War, Mysore was forced to become a subsidiary state. The Nizam of Hyderabad was the First to accept the "Well Framed" Subsidiary Alliance. After the Third Anglo-Maratha War, the Maratha ruler Baji Rao II also accepted a subsidiary alliance. several states like: Awadh (After The Battle of Buxar, 1764), Hyderabad (1798 and 1800), Tanjore (1799), Bhonsle (1803), and Indore(1817) adopted this system.

thanks for this information
I guess the question no.3 should be framed as "Which was the first river bank where english company was set up ?" instead of where first company was setup as its answer is surat .. which was established in 1613
first factory establish in surt in 1613 was correct second factory establish in calcutta on bank river hughli in 1651 its first factory established near bank of river hugli.

ya even i thought same. that question's answers is given wrong here.
If we collect revenue we will use it right!!! When they got the power to collect revenue in the form of Diwali rights they started using revenue for their vested interests. Hope I made it clear ????

Ma'am, regarding the first English factory in India, we can two possible answers - Surat or Masulipatnam - around 1611-12. But it was definitely NOT Calcutta! (This could be misleading for many of us :( )
wrt question 3 the factory on hoogly was set up in 1651 which evidently makes it clear that this wasnt the first one ... its so elementary .how can u get this one wrong...the first factory had to be bet surat or masulipatnam n neither of them is on hooghly.. i had come here with high expectations,all have been dashed..god knows where else u have erred.. damn
