    Correct Answer
    D. Fallen fruits, Plant shoots, Twigs and Folliage
    Explanation
    Javan Rhinoceroses are herbivores and primarily feed on plant material. Fallen fruits, plant shoots, twigs, and foliage provide a diverse range of nutrients and fibers that are essential for their diet. These food sources ensure that the rhinoceros gets a balanced meal with a variety of vitamins, minerals, and roughages. Cereals and grains, although they may be a part of some herbivores' diets, are not suitable for Javan Rhinoceroses as they are not natural food sources for them. Peas and nuts may provide some nutrients, but they do not offer the same nutritional value and variety as fallen fruits, plant shoots, twigs, and foliage.
