Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 4 : once

There are four Vedas- the Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda and Atharvaveda.

  • The oldest Veda is the Rigveda, composed about 3500 years ago.
  • The Rigveda includes more than a thousand hymns, called Sukta or “well-said”.
  • These hymns are in praise of various gods and goddesses.
  • Three gods are especially important: Agni, the god of fire; Indra, a warrior god; and Soma, a plant from which a special drink was prepared. 

The rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati had great prominence in Vedas.

  • Ganga and Yamuna are mentioned together for the first time in Rig Veda.
  • The Yamuna is mentioned three times and Ganga is mentioned once in Rig Veda. 

Thus, it is clear that option 4 is the correct answer.
