Correct. 

All burials have some common features.Generally, the dead were buried with distinctive pots, which are called Black and Red Ware. Also found are tools and weapons of iron and sometimes, skeletons of horses, horse equipment and ornaments of stone and gold.

Megaliths contain more than oneskeleton. These indicate that people, perhapsbelonging to the same family, were buried in thesame place though not at the same time. The bodiesof those who died later were brought into the gravethrough the portholes. Stone circles or boulders placed on the surface probably served as signpoststo find the burial site, so that people could returnto the same place whenever they wanted to.

Janapadas relied on gifts and Mahajanapadas relied on taxes. 

A?

While Janapadas relied on gifts and Mahajanapadas relied on taxes. statement is correct, but answer is D. 

Occasional gifts brought by people, as in the case of the raja of the janapadas, Mahajanpadas started collecting regular taxes.

• Taxes on crops were the most important. This was because most people were farmers. Usually, the tax was fixed at 1/6th of what was produced. This was known as bhaga or a share.

• There were taxes on crafts persons as well. These could have been in the form of labour. For example, a weaver or a smith may have had to work for a day every month for the king.

Herders were also expected to pay taxes in the form of animals and animal produce.

• There were also taxes on goods that were bought and sold, through trade.

• And hunters and gatherers also had to provide forest produce to the raja.
