(b) Mallikarjuna

(c) Vira Vijaya

Answer: A

The dam and canal system built by Devaraya I played a crucial role in harnessing the water resources of the Tungabhadra River and facilitating irrigation and agriculture in the region. It also helped in the development and sustenance of the capital city of the Vijayanagara Empire.

Therefore, the correct answer is (a) Devaraya I.
