Which language do words puma, condor and coca come from?

Spanish
Portuguese
Quechua
Tupi
Quechua had already expanded across wide ranges of the central Andes long even before the Incas. In fact, the Cuzco variety was not the more wide­spread. Today, the language and its vo­cab­u­lary is still popular in the Andes. In rural Bolivia, many Quechua words are as commonly used as their Spanish coun­ter­part­s, even in entirely Span­ish-s­peak­ing areas.
