Explanation:

Alexander Read and Thomas Munro were indeed associated with the introduction of the Ryotwari Settlement in India during the British rule. Thomas Munro played a significant role in implementing the Ryotwari System, which was first introduced in Tamil Nadu in 1820. Alexander Read, on the other hand, administered the system.

Under the Ryotwari System, individual cultivators were given ownership rights, and there were no intermediaries between the government and the peasants. The British government directly collected taxes from the peasants.

Therefore, the correct answer to the question is (c) 2 and 3 only, as Lord Cornwallis was not associated with the introduction of the Ryotwari Settlement.
