Introduction
Why England failed to take initiative
1. Economic Conditions of England
100 years war and Civil war of England. Started 16th century as devastated country, with shattered economy.
2. Religious Turmoil
Henry VIII and Mary's reign
3. Dominance of Spain
Most powerful in Europe with very large margin in their naval powers.
4. Profits brought by Sea Dogs
Found plundering Spanish ships more convenient and profitable.

Factors responsible for Colonizing
1. Reign of Tudors
Role of Henry VIII " Father of England' Navy"
Peaceful and stable Elizabeth's England
Rise of Enclosure Movement
Joint Stock Companies
2. Economic Interests
Gold and Silver brought by Spain
Fur trade of France
3. Spanish Armada
Proved might of England and its navy
4. Challenge other countries in New World
5. Export & Trade
Growth of Industry
Need of new source of raw materials and new markets
6. Religious Persecution
Pilgrims, Puritans, Protestants, Quakers
7. Religious Rivalry
Counter Catholic missionaries sent by France and Spain.

You can rephrase like, introduction of new culture, inclusion of Britons and African-Americans, and mixed ones... And, more.

And,your heading "Steps for self-government" is bit contradictory to me, because the question asks about impacts caused by British advent in America. So your heading gives a sense that you are referring to self-govt. by natives, which is not the case by then and now. You can replace it by giving a better face.
Agreed. I am referring here to British-turned Americans who fought for independence not natives. Thanks for correcting me.

Why England failed to take the initiatives in the colonization of American Continent? What factors were responsible for the British interest in establishing their colonies in the areas that are now part of The United States?

Why England failed to take the initiatives in the colonization of American Continent

Introduction
Jamestown was the first English colony on American continent that came into existence in 1607 -- almost a 100 years after John Cabot made his voyage to North of America. This delay in colonization as compared to other European powers like Spain was due to a handful of reasons. Some of the reasons are mentioned below.

1. Religious Conflicts : Separation from Roman Church
2. Poverty
3. Entangled in Wars
4. Lack of Interest : Privateers served the purpose.

Conclusion
It would be pertinent to conclude that not only the problems that intertwined England were the only reasons for this delay in the colonization. England, mainly due to its lack of interest, didn't feel the need for the colonization until late 16th Century.

British Interest in Colonization of America

Introduction
Previously, we have discussed apropos what stopped England from colonizing American continent until 1607. So, what actually led England to colonize afterwards? And that too with such a vigor that the English population outnumbered Spanish and French colonies in a matter of few decades. Although there were a handful of reasons, the major ones were the Three G's : God, Gold and Glory. Three G's can be further divided in simple terms as enlisted.

1. Religious Persecution: Pilgrims, Puritans
2. Trade: Search for Gold
3. Poverty: More land, More resources.
4. Imperial Race

Conclusion
Although England joined the race late, it caught up pretty quickly. Aforementioned reasons contributed to the establishment of 13 English colonies which were populous than other European colonies in the continent.
Dear your first part seems good. But your missing the basic points in your 2nd part i.e British deire to trade with East. Rest is fine.

What were the factors which led to the formation of New England Confederation of Massachusetts Bay, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Haven Colonies, in 1643?

I couldn't find much information on this question and it has been asked twice in past papers.

Several factors were involved in the formation of New England Confederation,1643-1684. The main factors were protection from the Indians, the dutch and the french, resolving territorial disputes among colonies, regulating trade and carry out economic transactions to substantiate their colonies. Besides, safeguarding from the British aggression and religious disputes that existed among colonies.

For brevity, i have answered main areas. You can much more information online/google books.

Hope it helps!

I have found some points through internet, couldn't find much in any book. Could suggest a book in which this topic is covered?

Factors responsible
1. England's civil war (1642-1651)
Colonies lacked support of their mother country
2. Boundary Issues
Only two colonies had royal charters, while others were formed by dissenting groups.
3. Trade
Their economy depended on trade and fishing, and they had clashes on source and river routes.
4. Pequot War & Pan-Indian Confederation
Indian tribes had united against colonist
5. Rhode Island and Run away criminals
Criminals from one colony often escaped to others.
Rhode Island was not liked by other colonies because of their more liberal views and they wanted it to wither
6. Separation and self-government
Because of English Civil war they took it as an opportunity to separate themselves completely from England.

These are the points which I got from Internet, but the problem is that I don't think this will be enough for 20 marks question. My answer will span over 2-3 pages max.
