    A. Princely states
    Explanation
    During the Quit India movement, various sections of the population actively participated in the movement to demand independence from British rule. However, the princely states did not participate much in the movement. Princely states were semi-autonomous regions ruled by local kings or princes who had a degree of independence from British control. As a result, they did not have a strong incentive to join the Quit India movement as they were not directly under British rule. Therefore, the princely states did not actively participate in the movement compared to government officials, the Muslim population, and peasants who were more directly affected by British policies.
