    Bhabani Charan Bandyopadhyay was nominally in charge of Sambad Kaumudi till 13 issues got published. However, Rajaram Mohan Roy was its editor, promoter, owner and publisher for almost all purposes.

    Subsidiary alliance involved these types of arrangements:
    1. Company kept forces at border of protectorate for cash
    2. Company kept forces inside the protectorate for cash
    3. Company kept forces inside the protectorate and got some territories in return.

    The first victim of Subsidiary alliance was Nizam, but the question is asking about the third type of arrangement given above. It was Oudh. So, the given answer is correct.
