    D)  Gopal Hari Deshmukh

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] Gopal Hari Deshmukh (18 February 1823 - 9 October 1892) was a social reformer from Maharashtra.

(Noteworthily, Deshmukh belonged to the Brahmin class.) He enunciated certain 15 principles for bringing about religious reform in Hindu society.
