Answer: C

The Ryotwari system was devised by Capt. Alexander Read and Thomas Munro at the end of the 18th century. It was later introduced by Thomas Munro when he was governor (1820–27) of Madras.

Lord Cornwallis is associated with the Cornwallis Code 1793 and could not have been associated since his tenure preceded the ryotwari settlement regime.
