  4. John Logie Baird


Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 3

Explanation:

Samuel Colt (July 19, 1814 - January 10, 1862) was an American inventor and industrialist from Hartford, Connecticut. Samuel Colt invented the first revolver, a gun named after its inventor "Colt", and after its revolving cylinder "revolver". In 1836, Samuel Colt was granted a U.S. patent for the Colt revolver, which was equipped with a revolving cylinder containing five or six bullets and an innovative cocking device. Before the Colt revolver only one and two-barrel flintlock pistols had been invented for hand held use. Colt revolvers were all based on cap-and-ball technology until the Smith and Wesson license on the bored-through cylinder (bought from Rollin White) expired around 1869.
