Explanation: For this question, you are looking for a group that had a similar experience to the zamindars. That is, you are looking for a group that had its traditional aristocratic power challenged by a new regime. This would describe the daimyo, (D), in Japan when the Tokugawa Era began. Lords kept their land and relatively important place in society under the Holy Roman Empire, so (A) is not similar to the zamindars. Peasants never had significant power in Russia, so eliminate (B). Choice (C) is not similar because the Qing warriors represented the Manchu Dynasty; eliminate (C).
