Solution

The correct options are
C Coal was transported from Worsley using a canal.
D Steam powered transportation aided industrialisation.
  • The older kutcha roads were converted into pakka or ‘Macadamised’ roads, which were invented by John McAdam.
  • The Worsley Canal was mainly constructed to carry coal from Worsley, the coal deposits located near Manchester.
