Solution

The correct option is A C
Ans.(c)
Warren Hastings was the first Governor General of Bengal. He had two basic problems before him. One was that of revenue collection and the other was with respect to legal system. Hence, he introduced his reforms on a trial and error basis. The Cornwallis code prepared by Lord Cornwallis and George Barlow was based on separation of powers. Vellore mutiny took place during the period of George Barlow in 1806. William Bentinck adopted a pragmatic foreign policy. His policy was that of Non-intervention & Non-aggression with Indian states
