Samrat Hemachandra Vikramaditya (also known as HemuVikramaditya, Raja Vikramaditya or simply Hemu) (1501 – 5 November 1556) was a Hindu emperor of north India during the sixteenth century AD. The Prithviraj Vijay is a contemporary account of the 12th century the Kingdom of Ajmer ruled by the Chauhan clan. In 1192, outlying portions of the kingdom fell to invading Turks, and the capital Ajmer later in 1195, but other parts under the Chauhan Rajaputras continued to resist the invaders for more than a century.

The text helps to dispel many myths from that period, that have developed in later writings, for example, the establishment of a Sufi shrine in Ajmer. He was the grandson of Pinaka Nandi and the son of Prajapati Nandi, the Sandhi-Vigrahika (minister of peace and war) of the Pala emperor Ramapala.

He wrote the epic poem Ramacharitam.

d) Sanskrit

Answer: (c)

In the Gupta period, the language used by the people of low society level and women was Prakrit. The word, derived from its Indian root “Parikrit”, itself has a flexible definition, being defined sometimes as, “original, natural, artless, normal, ordinary, usual”, or “vernacular”, in contrast to the literary and religious orthodoxy of sanskrita.

Alternatively, Prakrit can be taken to mean “derived from an original,” means evolved in a natural way.
