Yes, the correct option was A.

If we turn the pages of history then we fill find that the first option - Nasir-ud-Din Mahmud Shah Tughluq - was sultan of Delhi when Timur invaded the city.

According to John Joseph Saunders, Timur was "the product of an islamized and iranized society", and not steppe nomadic.[6]

Born into the Barlas confederation in Transoxiana (in modern-day Uzbekistan) on 9 April 1336, Timur gained control of the western Chagatai Khanate by 1370. From that base, he led military campaigns across Western, South and Central Asia, the Caucasus and southern Russia, and emerged as the most powerful ruler in the Muslim world, says Wikipedia.
