Correct Answer : In the Battle of Wandiwash, the French were completely defeated by the English.

Explanation :

The Battle of Wandiwash was a decisive battle in India during the Seven Years’ War.

This Battle took place at Vandavasi in Tamil Nadu and was fought between the French, under the Comte de Lally, and the British, under Sir Eyre Coote.

After making substantial gains in Bengal and Hyderabad and collecting huge amount of revenue, the British were fully equipped to face the French in Wandiwash.

While the Count de Lally’s army, burdened by a lack of naval support and funds, attempted to regain the fort at Vandavasi near Pondicherry. He was attacked by Sir Eyre Coote’s forces and the French were completely defeated by the English.

The French were thereafter confined to Pondicherry, which surrendered on January 16, 1761, after much privation.
