1.In 1939, Gandhiji tried to get the Congress to agree with a proposition of his. There was some disagreement but the matter had been put aside without decision. In June 1940, events happened that made it necessary for the Congress to define its views on this matter precisely. Under influence of Nehru, Rajgopalachari and Azad, the Working Committee, though accepting Gandhi’s proposal as partially workable, rejected it. This was endorsed at a meeting of the All-India Congress Committee in July. Four members of the Working Committee abstained from voting, and Abdul Gaffar Khan resigned in protest. What was the issue in hand?

2. The villages around Ford St. David (opposite the town of Cuddalore on Coromandel Coast) are called 'cannonball villages'. Why?

4. Four times a year, on Id, Bakr-Id, New Years Day, and the Birthday of the Queen of England, British representatives would have to stand barefoot in front of Bahadur Shah Zafar, and presented the Nazar or tribute. Unable to bring themselves barefoot, they somehow deceived the Emperor. How?

5. This king, in the year of his accession in 1925, became a victim of a gang of blackmailers, who caught him nude at the Savoy Hotel in London with a girl they had planted.
