Solution

The correct option is B 40
The Lucknow Pact of 1916 brought the Indian National Congress and the Muslim League together. One of the clauses in the Pact was that half of the members of the Governor General's Executive Council would be Indians elected by the Imperial Legislative Council. The Imperial Council was to have 150 members, out of which 120 members would be elected. Forty out of these would be reserved for Muslims elected on the principle of separate electorates. Thus, the Pact allowed for greater Muslim representation in the government.
