    B)  He introduced the Subsidiary Alliance

    C)  He succeeded Lord Canning as the Viceroy of India

    D)  He separated the divisions of Dacca, Chittagong and Rajshahi from the province of Bengal and annexed them to Asom

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] Lord Curzon assumed his office, when he was forty years old. All his reform measures were preceded by an expert Commission and its recommendations. He made a serious study of the Indian problems in all their aspects. At the beginning Curzon earned the popularity and admiration of the Indian people. He lost the popularity by the Act of Partition of Bengal. The Partition of Bengal into two provinces was effected on 4 July 1905. The new province of Eastern Bengal and Assam included the whole of Assam and the Dacca, Rajshahi and Chittagong divisions of Bengal with headquarters at Dacca. Though Curzon justified his action on administrative lines, partition divided the Hindus and Muslims in Bengal. This led to the anti-partition agitation all over the country. This had also intensified the National Movement.
