Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 3

Explanation:

The Indian Independence Bill was formally introduced in the British Parliament on 4 July 1947 and received the royal ascent on the 18th of the same month. It removed all limitations on the responsible government (or the elected legislature) of the natives, and until they developed their own constitutions their respective governor-generals and provincial governors were to enjoy the same powers as their counterparts in the other dominions of the Commonwealth. This technical jargon, interpreted in common language, meant that India and Pakistan were to become independent from 15 August 1947.
