  2. Macaulay as a Viceroy made English education compulsory across the subcontinent
  3. Macaulay's 'Minute on Indian Education’ argued for the superiority of English education

Solution

The correct option is C Macaulay's 'Minute on Indian Education’ argued for the superiority of English education 
In 1835, Macaulay presented his ‘Minute on Indian Education’. Through this, he sought to establish the need to impart English education to the ‘natives’, claiming its superiority over the traditional knowledge systems of India. His speech made a huge impact on the audience, and was one of the main discussions leading up to the passing of the English Education Act.
