  1. Hello, allow me to correct the wrong answers:
    * Mohammed Boudiaf is the 04th president of Algeria and not the 07th.
    * Bertrand Clauzel was one of the colonial heads and not a governor of the country.
    * The Algerian War of Independence began on November 01st, 1954.

    An additional detail:
    * Ahmed Ben Bella is the 01st Prime Minister and the 01st president of People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria.

    1. Mohammed Boudiaf is the 04th president of Algeria and not the 07th.
      There is no question of 7th president of Algeria.

      Bertrand Clauzel was one of the colonial heads and not a governor of the country.
      Bertrand Clauzel is mentioned as governor or governor general and also commander-in-chief.

      The Algerian War of Independence began on November 01st, 1954.
      Encyclopaedia Britannica mentions the Algerian War of Independence began on the night of 31 October 1954. Many sites mention 1 November 1954. It is a question of exact time. If it was after midnight 1 November. Before midnight 31 October. There were many uprisings all over Algeria. Exact time of first uprising is disputed
