The Japanese also noticed how well the Chinese system of government worked. They too adopted the merit-based bureaucratic structure. In addition, they used Chinese methods of taxation and imitated the Chinese model of a centralized state. The Japanese also adopted Confucian values that they applied in social and political activities, but never to the extent that China had done.

In the late 1100s, Japan’s imperial rulers were deposed by warriors. This resulted in the rise of the shoguns, powerful warlords who ruled provinces throughout Japan. Zen Buddhism, a religion that originated in China, reached Japan at around this time, and Buddhist beliefs of internal focus and personal strength were influential in Japan under the shoguns. The shogunates lasted until 1867.
Chinese government, especially with the infusion of Confucianism, continues to influence governments at all levels in modern Asia. Perhaps the best example of this influence is in the civil service system. As reformed under the guidance of Confucius, the Chinese civil service system made holding a government office not only a mark of respect, but also a badge of achievement. Individuals who gained appointments in the emperor’s government, regardless of the level, represented the emperor, and civil servants were revered.
This same sense of respect and reverence continued into the modern era in many of the world’s governments. Civil servants and appointed officials are still held in high esteem in China and other Asian nations. However, with the ascendancy of the communist regime in China, some of the Confucian meritocracy was lost as cronyism and corruption began to spread. Some of these same respectful attitudes have existed in Western governments, though they declined somewhat with the countercultural movement during the last part

I was thinking the same thing but I think b is closer to the answer
Check your text to see what its author recommends.
Does it say anything about tai chai and Hinduism?
no, i don't see anything about tai chai or Hinduism
Ok. Apparently Hindus did adopt some tai chai practices, but if your text doesn't mention it, do not include it in your right answers.
