The commander in chief of the British forces in America who was to drive the French out of America was a. George Washington. C. Edward Braddock. B. William Pitt. D. Benjamin Franklin.

The right answer is C) Edward Braddock. Major General Edward Braddock (1695-1755) was commander-in-chief at the beginning of the French and Indian War (1754-1763) and, in 1755, he led a massive expedition aimed at capturing Fort Duquesne, in Pennsylvania, which had been built by the French. The expedition, however, was a failure, and Braddock died at the Battle of the Monongahela  - also known as Braddock's Defeat - that ensued.
