Correct option is
C

Persian

There was a deep and strong influence of Persian language and culture on the Mughal rulers due to their roots traced back to Persia and continuous diplomatic ties. Thus, Persian continued to remain the official language of the Mughal court. It is also because many Persian artists, craftsmen and learned people came to India and settled here during the Mughal period.
