Solution

The correct option is B 1 and 3 only

Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct:

Statement 2 is incorrect: Krishnadevaraya was the emperor between 1509–1529. He was the third ruler of the Tuluva Dynasty. During his reign, he kept strict control over his ministers. He abolished taxes such as the marriage fee. To increase revenues, he brought new lands under cultivation by ordering deforestation of some areas. A large-scale work to obtain water for irrigation around Vijayanagar was also undertaken by him. This led to an increase in the revenue of the Vijayanagar empire.

Statement 3 is correct: According to Ferishta, Deva Raya II felt that the superiority of the Bahmani army was due to their sturdier horses and their large body of mounted archers. He, therefore, enlisted 2000 Muslim cavalrymen, gave them jagirs, and commanded all his Hindu soldiers and officers to learn the art of archery from them.
