Solution

The correct option is B b, a, d, c
The kathaks were initially a caste of story-tellers in temples of north India, who adorned their performances with gestures and songs. Kathak dance started evolving into a distinct mode of dance in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries with the spread of the Bhakti movement. Under the Mughals, Kathak was performed in the court, where it acquired its present features. The last Nawab of Awadh, Wajid Ali Shah also patronized it.
