    Solution:

    The new Tory government in Britain constituted a Statutory Commission under Sir John Simon. The commission was organised to investigate the working of the colonial administrative framework in India and recommend changes. The issue was that the commission did not have a single Indian, as all seven members were British.
    Thus when the Simon Commission showed up in India in 1928, it was welcomed with the motto 'Simon, go back'. All gatherings, including the Congress and the Muslim League, participated in the protest. However, the boycott of the Simon Commission in 1928 did not occur with Gandhiji's Dandi March of 1930. The Salt Satyagraha was intended to break the salt law by making salt from seawater at Dandi.
    Hence option 3 is correct; A is true, but R is false.
