    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    The Abhidhamma Pitaka has been described as philosophy, psychology and metaphysics. The ingrained methodology in it perceived things in terms of events and not processes. The Sutta Pitaka is more like a prescription, consisting of Buddhist sermons describing what to do and what not to practise. The Vinaya Pitaka deals extensively with the rules and regulations to be followed by the Bhikkus and Bhikkunis. The Sanskrit term, Mahasanghika, implies 'great congregation' and represents the first schism of Buddhism. Mahasanghika matches with members of great community.
