  • The correct option is "c. provinces ruled by the British Raj and states controlled by Indian monarch"

    British raj was the dominion of the British Crown over the Indian subcontinent between 1858 and 1947. This dominion is also known as the Crown Government in India, or Direct Government of India. The area under British control that was called "British India" is currently divided between the states of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma; the states that were ruled by Hindu kings under British tutelage, were called Princely States. The resulting political union was also known as the Indian Empire.
