Culture refers to the beliefs, customs, and practices of a group of people, while civilization refers to the complex social, political, and economic organization of a society. Both culture and civilization are dynamic and can evolve over time, but one cannot exist without the other. Additionally, both culture and civilization are not limited to physical borders and can transcend geographical boundaries.

    Correct Answer
    C. Buddhism affected the Caste System.
    Explanation
    The main reason for Hinduism rejecting Buddhism is that Buddhism affected the Caste System. Hinduism is deeply rooted in the caste system, where individuals are born into specific social groups and their social status is determined by birth. Buddhism, on the other hand, rejected the caste system and emphasized equality and liberation from social divisions. This fundamental difference in ideology threatened the hierarchical structure of Hindu society, leading to the rejection of Buddhism by Hinduism.
