Previous answer: C
Gandhi never received the Nobel Peace Prize, although he was nominated for it five times between 1937 and 1948. In 1948, the year he was assassinated, the Nobel Committee issued no award stating "there was no suitable living candidate." In 1989, when the Dalai Lama was awarded the prize, the chairman of the committee said that it was "in part a tribute to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi".
