Solution :-

After 1905 most trade unions and factory committees were declared illegal, there were restrictions on political activity. Tsar dismissed the first 2 Dumas very quickly because he did not want his authority and powers to be questioned. The third Duma was filled with Conservative politicians. During the 1st world war the tsar started taking unilateral decisions without consulting the Duma, and while retreating during the war large swathes of agricultural lands were burnt and buildings destroyed by Russian soldiers on the orders of the Tsar, and millions of soldiers died in the battle. The large majority of the population were peasants and the land was under the control of a few private people. All these factors led to the rise of revolution and the collapse of the Tsar autocracy.
