Correct option is
B

he wrongly estimated the increasing power of Sher Shah

  • Humayun was unable to properly estimate the increasing power of Sher Shah.
  • The presence of large numbers of Afghan tribes across the north India and their nature of getting united under a capable leader was ignored by him.
  • Without getting the support of the local rulers and zamindars, the Mughals were bound to remain numerically inferior.
