Solution:
Option(B) is correct

Besides Mughal rulers, Qazi-ul-Quzat was the supreme authority in justice.

Since it was difficult for the emperor to do-away with justice in all the cases, he appointed Qazi-ul-Quzat to do the justice in accordance with Muslim Law.

The Chief Judge of the sultanate was known as the Qazi - I -  Mamalik also known as the Qazi- ul- Quzat.
