    the choices are.. Should the ruler be approved by a religious council? Should the ruler be a devout Sunni Muslim? Should the ruler be related to Muhammad? Should the ruler be chosen by Allah through lots?

    The best answer here is B. The original conflict over succession happened specifically because Mohammed died without a son to succeed him, and the early Muslim community was split on whether the title of caliph should pass to his cousin Ali, or to others not related to Mohammed. A is incorrect because at the time the distinction between Sunni and Shia did not yet exist. C is incorrect because the title of caliph would not be decided in such an informal way.
