    Correct Answer
    C. Women infanticide, polygamy, purdah, child marriage etc..
    Explanation
    Raja Rammohan Roy considered women infanticide, polygamy, purdah, and child marriage as social evils because they are practices that oppress and discriminate against women. Women infanticide refers to the killing of female infants, which is a form of gender-based violence and discrimination. Polygamy allows men to have multiple wives, which often leads to the exploitation and marginalization of women. Purdah is a practice that restricts women's mobility and freedom by enforcing the covering of their bodies and faces. Child marriage deprives young girls of their education, health, and opportunities for personal development. Raja Rammohan Roy advocated for the abolition of these practices to promote gender equality and women's rights.
