    The founder of hinduism is Buddha

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the founder of Hinduism is not Buddha. Hinduism is one of the oldest religions in the world, and its origins can be traced back thousands of years. The Buddha, on the other hand, was the founder of Buddhism, which emerged as a separate religion from Hinduism in the 6th century BCE. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that the founder of Hinduism is Buddha.

    The Lord of the Dance is a title commonly associated with the Hindu deity Shiva. Shiva is often depicted performing the Tandava, a cosmic dance that symbolizes creation, preservation, and destruction. This dance represents the continuous cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Shiva's dance also signifies his role as the ultimate destroyer of evil and ignorance. Therefore, it is correct to say that Shiva is the Lord of the Dance.

    The subcontinent of India was conquered by the Maurya Empire 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Maurya Empire did indeed conquer the subcontinent of India. Under the rule of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya, the empire expanded its territory and established control over most of the Indian subcontinent by defeating various regional kingdoms. Chandragupta's grandson, Emperor Ashoka, further expanded the empire's boundaries through military campaigns. The Maurya Empire was one of the largest and most powerful empires in ancient India, spanning from present-day Afghanistan to Bangladesh. Therefore, the statement "The subcontinent of India was conquered by the Maurya Empire" is true.
