Solution

The correct option is A Doctrine of Lapse
Lord Dalhousie adopted the Doctrine of Lapse, a formula devised to deal with questions of succession to Hindu Indian states. The Hindu law allowed a Hindu king to adopt a child to become his successor. According to the Doctrine of Lapse, the king had to take the permission of the British East India Company before doing so.
