    Default Where British held sway." means "Where British ruled

    Hi teachers,

    1) "The discovery of Asia has not yet been accomplished." means "The discovery of Asia has not yet been completed." ?

    2) "Where British held sway." means "Where British ruled." ?

    Many thanks in advance!
