Solution

  1. The Second World War ended in the month of August 1945 with the surrender of Japan.
  2.  In this war England emerged victoriously but it lost heavily in terms of human life and economic conditions.
  3. As a result of this England grew weaker. The British Government in India is now aware that Indian soldiers and people are not meek and submissive as before, ruling them was no easier.
  4. India was not going to be the perennial source of profit for them as it used to be. There was a lot of pressure on England to give freedom to its colonies. Freedom struggles began in India which demanded Purna Swaraj' which means total independence.
    Hence, the British Government in India decided to return home.
