Solution

The correct option is D Neither 1 nor 2
Explanation:
  • Statement 1 is incorrect: The French East India Company was also involved in trying to control the political setup by influencing successions among Indian Princes. The French East India Company was largely involved in the succession of Nawab of Carnatic and Hyderabad’s Nizam.
  • Statement 2 is incorrect: Count De Lally succeeded Dupleix, who was sent back to France due to his ruinous policy of warfare which had led to the loss of exchequer. The French were decisively defeated at the Battle of Wandiwash by the British.
