    E. Resulted in many Indian deaths
    F. Was a "supposed" Hindu attempt to increase their power over the Muslims
    Explanation
    The Quit India Resolution was a non-violent struggle that called for the immediate withdrawal of the British. This is supported by the fact that it was a resolution passed by the Indian National Congress in 1942, advocating for complete independence from British rule. The resolution emphasized non-violent protests and civil disobedience as means to achieve this goal. Additionally, the resolution resulted in several Indian Congress leaders being arrested, indicating the strong opposition faced by the British. Furthermore, the Quit India Movement did lead to many Indian deaths, as the British authorities responded with violence and repression. However, there is no evidence to suggest that it was a "supposed" Hindu attempt to increase their power over the Muslims.
