Answer

The correct option is B: Ranjit Singh

Maharaja Ranjit Singh ruled Punjab from the early nineteenth century until his death in 1839. During his reign, he signed the Tripartite Treaty in 1838 with Shah Shujah, the ruler of Afghanistan, and the British. This treaty, however, wasn't entirely accepted by him, especially the terms that would permit the British to enter his territory. Ranjit Singh maintained a cautious approach towards the British, keeping them at a distance. Unfortunately, after his death, his successors lacked the strength and capability to control the British influence, resulting in increased British presence in Punjab.
