    A)  Did not include a representative of the Congress

    B)  Included a member of the Muslim League

    C)  Definitely negated the claim of the Indian people to determine their own constitution

    D)  Was appointed one year before it was due

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] At the annual session of the Congress in Madras in December 1927, a resolution was passed which advocated the boycott of the Simon Commission "at every stage and in every form".

Jinnah was for boycotting the commission; but Muhammad Shan was for support for the Government. Thus in 1927, Muslim league had two sessions- One was led by Jinnah at Calcutta where he opposed the Commission. Another was held at Lahore that was led by Muhammad Shafi, where he supported the Government. So, all parties except the Shafi group of Muslim league and a Justice Party at Madras, were against the Simon Commission.
