Solution:
Option(A) is correct

In 1861, the newspaper, Indian Mirror, was edited and published by Manmohan Ghosh and Keshub Chunder Sen.

The two met while Monomohun Ghosh was a student at the Presidency College in Calcutta, India.

It is also interesting to note that the Indian Mirror was among the first Indian newspapers. The founder, Monomohun Ghosh, is no less distinguished.

He, along with Satyendranath Tagore, was the first Indian to appear for Indian Civil Services (though he failed in both his attempts).

He is also one of the founders of the Indian National Congress, the party that led India to independence.
