    • D.

      Hanuman

    Correct Answer
    B. Sushen
    Explanation
    Sushen is the correct answer because he is the one who tells Rama about the Sanjivani herb that can revive Lakshman. Jambuvanta is a bear who helps in the war, but there is no mention of him having knowledge about the herb. Dhanwantari is the god of Ayurveda, but there is no indication that he plays a role in reviving Lakshman. Hanuman is a great devotee of Rama and plays a significant role in the war, but there is no mention of him being aware of the Sanjivani herb. Therefore, Sushen is the most appropriate answer.
