    At which one of the following places was Akbar formally seated on the Mughal throne after the accidental death of his father Humayun?

    A)  Kabul  

    B)  Lahore

    C)  Kalanaur          

    D)  Sarhind

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] On 27 January 1556, Humayun, with his arms full of books, was descending the staircase from his library when the muezzin announced the Azaan (the call to prayer). It was his habit, wherever he heard the summons, to bow his knee in holy reverence. Trying to kneel, he caught his foot in his robe, tumbled down several steps and hit his temple on a rugged stone edge. He died three days later. His body was laid to rest in Purana Quila initially, but because of attack by Hemu on Delhi and capture of Purana Qila, Humayun's body was exhumed by the fleeing army and transferred to Kalanaur in Punjab where Akbar was coronated. His tomb stands in Delhi, where he was later buried in a grand way.
