Answer: B

Explanation: In 1800, Wellesley (governor-general, 1798-1805) set up Fort William College for training of new recruits.

In 1806 Wellesley’s college was disapproved by the Court of Directors and instead the East India College was set up at Haileybury in England to impart two years’ training to the recruits.
