Solution

The correct options are
A Some kings thought they were superior to priests.
B Some believed that birth could not decide their varna.
C Some believed that there should be no differences based on occupation. 
D Some believed that everyone should be able to perform rituals.
The priests divided people into four varnas and these varnas had different set of functions to perform. However, many people did not accept the system of varna laid down by the priests. The priests considered themselves to be superior to the other varnas and believed that varna was decided on the basis of birth and it also decided the occupation of people.
