The "especially in Hinduism" part of the deity clue is confusing. I gave up after "deva" and "devi" didn't work.

How should I word it then? I'm also working on E and F ancient history if you have any ideas for clues please let me know. Thank you for your feedback

Just "a god or goddess" would work for deity. It's an English word and can apply to deities from any religion. I'd also suggest changing the clue for dharma to "in Indian religions" because it is not a concept specific to Buddhism. E and F. I don't have any ideas at the moment but if I think of something, I'll let you know in the comments here. :)
