Q. 1 A

Choose the A. New York

B. Philadelphia

C. Jamestown

D. Amsterdam

Answer :

c) is the right answer. While the British asserted their right over North American treaties as far back as in 1497 owing to the voyage of John Cabot, it was only in 1607 that they first established a British colony, Jamestown in the Americas. It must be noted here that the British were relatively disinclined to colonisation in the early years, when the Spanish and Portuguese were out to get the world.


a) is incorrect. New York was in fact a Dutch colony by the name New Amsterdam, later captured by the English and re-christened.


b) is incorrect. Philadelphia was not even one of the 13 original colonies.


d) Amsterdam is incorrect. It is a town in ______, not a former American colony.
