Nice try! Gastrin is one of them. It stimulates growth of the gastrointestinal mucosa (except for in the esophagus and the antrum), and also growth of the exocrine pancreas.

Glucagon and VIP have not been shown to have trophic effects; particularly, glucagon is a catabolic hormone so it's more for breaking down things instead of stimulating growth.

Next try for the other two? :p
Lol! Should have gussed insulin atleast! But nice question neway!
