    The correct answer is Lord Cornwallis.

    Key PointsTriple Alliance It consisted of British, Nizam, and Marathas against Tipu sultan in 1791-92. It was formed by Lord Cornwallis. Hence, Option 2 is correct.

    Tipu Sultan also known as Tiger of Mysore was a pioneer of rocket artillery.

    On 1 September 1798, the Nizam of Hyderabad, Nizam Ali Khan (Asaf Jah II) entered into a subsidiary alliance with the English East India Company, thus making Hyderabad the first princely state to officially become a British protectorate.

    In 1790, the Nizam had allied with the Marathas and the East India Company to fight Tipu Sultan, the ruler of Mysore in a Triple Alliance as part of the Third Anglo-Mysore War. Tipu was defeated in this war.

    Ali Khan had a French General in his command named Monsieur Raymond who provided training to the Nizam’s troops.

    The English were wary of the French influence on the Nizam. (Both the English and the French at this point were interfering in local politics to oust one another from the subcontinent and secure their own commercial interests).

    The British resident at Hyderabad, Captain Achilles Kirkpatrick exerted his pressure at the court of the Nizam and convinced him to enter into a subsidiary alliance with the Company in return for military aid.

    Accordingly, in 1798, Hyderabad became the first Indian princely state to enter into a subsidiary alliance with the British. In the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War in 1799, the Nizam supported the British against Tipu Sultan.

    Additional Information

    Warren Hastings

    He was an English statesman, was the first Governor of the Presidency of Fort William, the head of the Supreme Council of Bengal, and so the first de facto Governor-General of Bengal in 1772–1785.

    He and Robert Clive are credited with laying the foundation of the British Empire in India.

    Lord Wellesley (as Governor-General)

    He came to India in 1798 at a time when the British were locked in a life-and-death struggle with France all over the world.

    Lord Wellesley decided that the time was ripe for bringing as many Indian states as possible under British control.

    By 1797, the two strongest Indian powers, Mysore and the Marathas had declined in power.

    The Third Anglo-Mysore war had reduced Mysore to a mere shadow of its recent greatness and the Marathas were dissipating their strength in mutual intrigues and wars.

    Political conditions in India were propitious for a policy of (British) expansion: aggression was easy as well as profitable.

    Lord William Bentinck

    He served as Governor-General of India between 1828 to 1835.

    His tenure is known for the social reforms such as Abolition of Sati in 1829, Suppression of Thugi, and Suppression of Infanticide, etc.

    English was introduced as a medium of higher education on the advice of his council member, Thomas Babington Macaulay.

    A pact with Maharaja Ranjit Singh was made. Charter act 1833 was passed by which East India Company ceased to be a trading company.

    Some corrective measures in civil services were taken.

    This seven years period was an epoch for administrative reforms in India.

    It started a process by which the Indian population, which is furious of sudden changes, was made to obey the British rulers and administration slowly.
