Options :
  1. Dr. Annie Besant
  2. Sucheta Kriplani
  3. Aruna Asaf Ali
  4. Sarojini Naidu

Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 3


On 8 August 1942, the All India Congress Committee passed the Quit India resolution at the Bombay session. The government responded by arresting the major leaders and all members of the Congress Working Committee and thus tried to pre-empt the movement from success. A young Aruna Asaf Ali presided over the remainder of the session on 9 August and hoisted the Congress flag at the Gowalia Tank maidan. This marked the commencement of the movement. The police fired upon the assembly at the session. Aruna was dubbed the 'Heroine of the 1942 movement' for her bravery in the face of danger and was called 'Grand Old Lady of the Independence movement' in her later years.
