Correct Answer - Option 4 : Nagari

The correct answer is Nagari.

  • The first physical evidence of Buddhism is the edicts of Ashoka.

  • A total of 33 inscriptions of Ashoka talk about the moral duties of the people and life conduct principles.
  • The inscriptions were composed in the Prakrit (Magadhi) language and written in Brahmi script throughout the greater part of the empire i.e. eastern part of India.
  • In the north-western part, inscriptions were written in Kharosthi script which is closer to Sanskrit, and in Kandahar (Afghanistan) region they were written in Aramaic i.e. Greek script.
