Explanation:

The rivers Nagavali and Vamsadhara rise from the Eastern Ghats. The Eastern Ghats is a mountain range that runs along the eastern coast of India. These rivers originate in the Eastern Ghats and flow towards the east, eventually emptying into the Bay of Bengal.

On the other hand, Brahmani and Subarnarekha rivers do not rise from the Eastern Ghats. The Brahmani river originates from the Amarkantak Plateau in Chhattisgarh and flows through Odisha before joining the Bay of Bengal. The Subarnarekha river originates in the Chota Nagpur Plateau in Jharkhand and also flows through Odisha before reaching the Bay of Bengal.

Therefore, the correct answer is that only the rivers Nagavali and Vamsadhara rise from the Eastern Ghats.
