Solution

The correct option is A 1 only
The British replaced the Brown Bess Guns with the Enfield Rifles that had greased cartridges. There was a rumour that the cartridges were greased with fat from pigs and cows. Pork is forbidden food for Muslims and cows are revered by the Hindus. So, the Indian soldiers refused to use the rifles; this led to the 1857 Sepoy Mutiny.
