False c) Guru Gobind Singh was the tenth Guru of the Sikhs. True d) Poona became the capital of the Marathas in the eighteenth century. True Q4. What were the offices held by Sa adat Khan? Answer. All the three offices of political, financial and military administration, subadar ( political) diwani,(financial) and faudari (military ) were held by Sa adat Khan in Awadh, from Q5. Why did the Nawabs of Awadh and Bengal try to do away with the jagirdari system? Answer. The Nawabs of Awadh and Bengal tried to reduce the number of jagirdars and the size of the jagirdari to increase their influence, and to reduce cost of salary paid to the multiple officials. Q6. How were the Sikhs organised in the eighteenth century? Answer. The Sikhs were organised as jathas of warriors, comprising of smaller units called misl. All the jathas together comprised the dal Khalsa, or the grand army. The dal khalsa would meet in Amritsar, on Baisakhi and Diwali to take collective decisions called resolutions of the Guru or gurumat. The Sikh also imposed a tax of 20 per cent of the produce to peasants, in return for protection to cultivators. This was called the rakhi system. Q7. Why did the Marathas want to expand beyond the Deccan? 10x10learning.com Page 2

3 Answer. The Marathas, under Shivaji, had successfully challenged the Mughals in the Deccan. They had developed a very successful military organisation, that needed more tax resources for its upkeep. Therefore, they wanted to expand beyond Deccan to secure more wealth and political power. For this they avoided the Mughal fortified towns and attacked the weaker areas. After defeating the provincial rulers, they did not annex their kingdoms. Instead they made them pay regular tributes in gold and grains, thereby accepting Marathas, as a sovereign power. Q8. What were the policies adopted by Asaf Jah to strengthen his position? Answer. Asaf Jah was the subadar for the Deccan province of Hyderabad. He concentrated all administrative power in his own hands. To neutralise the competition among the mughal nobles in his court, he brought skilled administrators and soldiers from the northern parts of the empire, and appointed them as jagirdars in the Deccan. Hyderabad was engaged in wars with the Marathas and the Telugu nayakas. He tried to control the rich textile producing areas of the Coromondal coast in the east. Q9. Do you think merchants and bankers today have the kind of influence they had in the eighteenth century? Answer. Yes. The merchants and bankers in the eighteenth century gave loans to traders and peasants at high rates of interest, after keeping their lands as security. Today also, many family based bankers have continued their interest based financing businesses. They have flourished because they are more accessible and their procedure is very simplified. Even after more than six decades after Independence, the local merchants and bankers are the only source of finance in rural areas. This is because the regular banking system is 10x10learning.com Page 3
