Solution

The correct option is C Aruna Asaf Ali
The British government responded to the passing of Quit India resolution by arresting the major leaders of the Congress Working Committee. It was left to a young Aruna Asaf Ali to lead the movement. She was an Indian freedom fighter who is best known for hoisting Indian National Congress flag at the Gowalia Tank maidan in Bombay during the Quit India Movement. She earned the title “Heroine of the 1942 movement”. She represented the linkage of the women’s rights movement with the freedom struggle.
