Solution(By Examveda Team)

Historians have used various epithets while estimating Muhammad Tughlaq. Barani and Ibn-Batuta, his contemporaries found him a ‘complex person’, a ‘mixture of opposites.’ He had virtues and vices of extreme intensity. While he was generous, humble and kind, He was very narrow- minded, stubborn and most cruel. He gave gifts to all those whom he liked, he put to death who opposed him.
