The correct options are
A Indian historians were motivated to restore pride in the ancient glory of India.
C Indian historians were trained in the British educational system and assisted in the work of their British counterparts of the time.
D Nationalistic historians sometimes ignored the critical analysis of historical truth.
Indian historians who were trained in the British educational system displayed an urge to restore the pride in the ancient glory of India. They tried to boost the self-esteem of Indian readers through their writings. Such writings are called ‘Nationalistic Historiography’. As they seek the glory of past India, at times they are blamed for ignoring the critical analysis of the historical truth.

Up to that time, the British historians were biased and prejudice in the writings of Indian history.
