    Sir,
    In the ninth question you have mentioned Battle of Baxur but it should be Battle of Plassey that occured before Battle of Baxur in 23rd June 1757 and after this battle Mir Jafar was recognized as Nawab of Bengal

    no amanshat is right, it for sure should be Battle of Plassey in fact mir qasim was related to Battle of Baxur he had no relation with Battle of Plassey
