Solution

The correct options are
A It was founded in 1920.
C It was founded by N. M. Joshi.
D Lala Lajpat Rai was its first president.
The period after the First World War saw a surge in the number of workers due to a boom in industrialisation. Hence, the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) was formed in 1920, by N.M. Joshi. Lala Lajpat Rai was its first president. It united the workers from all over the country and fought for their rights. However, the weekly holiday for workers was made possible because of the relentless efforts of the Bombay Mill Hands Association founded by Narayan Meghaji Lokhande.
