(2) Bhojpuri
(3) Brijbhasa
(4) Maithili

Correct Answer : (1) Kabir wrote poems mainly in vernacular Hindi and Avadhi dialects.

Explanation :

Kabir was a famous Indian poet and saint who lived in present-day Uttar Pradesh during the 15th Century.

He was an illiterate person. Kabir wrote poems orally in vernacular Hindi, borrowing from various dialects including Avadhi, Braj, and Bhojpuri. His verses often began with some strongly worded insult to get the attention of passers-by.

Kabir has enjoyed a revival of popularity over the past half century as arguably the most accessible and understandable of the Indian saints, with a special influence over spiritual traditions such as those of Sant Mat, Garib Das and Radha Soami.

Kabir’s poems cover various aspects of life and call for a loving devotion for God. Kabir composed his verses with simple Hindi words. Most of his work was concerned with devotion, mysticism and discipline.

Also, Kabir wrote poems to bring Hindus and Muslims together and create peace. He had an inquisitive mind and learned a great deal about Hinduism. They helped ordinary people overcome long-held beliefs and achieve salvation through Bhakti, or pure devotion.
