Brother you are absolutely right.
I am thoroughly obliged for this correction.
I have solved these mcqs with much consideration and care,
yet there may be errors as well as mistakes. I would be obliged for corrections.


The Japanese invasion of Manchuria began on September 19, 1931, when Manchuria was invaded by the Army of the Empire of Japan.
And it was a part of Second Sino-Japanese War. The Second Sino-Japanese War (July 7, 1937 – September 9, 1945) was a military conflict fought primarily between the Republic of China and the Empire of Japan.
