Q. The fiscal administration of Akbar has been largely based on the methods of which of the following ruler?

[A] Muhammad Bin Tughlaq

[B] Humayaun

[C] Sher Shah

[D] Alaud-Du012bn Khalji

Answer: C

The fiscal administration for which Akbar and Todar Mal have been so highly praised was largely based on the methods of Sher Shah.

  • During his short rule, Sher Shah did not have much time for building new cities and palaces.
  • He started building a new walled city in Delhi, which later came to be known as Purana Qila (Old Fort). He built his own mausoleum in Sasaram.
