    Which among the following Vedic Texts gives a systematic exposition of the 'theory of rebirth' for the first time?

    A)  Chhandogya Upanishad

    B)  Mundaka Upanishad

    C)  Satapatha Brahmana

    D)  Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

    Correct Answer: A

These assertions suggest an attempt to address rationalization, curiosities and challenges to the reincarnation theory
