Solution

The correct option is B
2 and 3 only
Explanation:

Statement 1 is incorrect: Although infrastructure development indirectly benefited common people of India, as it enabled people to undertake long distance travel and thereby break geographical and cultural barriers, it was not an objective of British, behind the development of infrastructure in India.

Statement 2 and 3 are correct: British build the roads in India primarily for the purpose of mobilising the army within India to suppress any revolt or to capture more areas and to transport the raw materials from the faraway regions to the nearest railway station or the port to deliver it ultimately to far away England or other lucrative foreign destinations.
