The Frog Prince

One fine evening a young princess put on her bonnet and clogs, and went out to take a
walk by herself in a wood; and when she came to a cool spring of water with a rose in the
middle of it, she sat herself down to rest a while. Now she had a golden ball in her hand, which
was her favourite plaything; and she was always tossing it up into the air, and catching it again
as it fell.
After a time she threw it up so high that she missed catching it as it fell; and the ball
bounded away, and rolled along on the ground, until at last it fell down into the spring. The
princess looked into the spring after her ball, but it was very deep, so deep that she could not
see the bottom of it. She began to cry, and said, "Alas! If I could only get my ball again, I would
give all my fine clothes and jewels, and everything that I have in the world."
While she was speaking, a frog put its head out of the water, and said, "Princess, why do
you weep so bitterly?" "Alas!" Said she, "What can you do for me, you nasty frog? My golden
ball has fallen into the spring." The frog said, "I do not want your pearls, and jewels, and fine
clothes; but if you will love me, and let me live with you and eat off your golden plate, and
sleep on your bed, I will bring you your ball again."

In Indonesia, mudflows have been the major cause of destruction and loss of human life
during volcanic catastrophes and landslides. Another kind of disaster which calmed victims, but which
was not directly caused by volcanic eruptions, happened at the Dieng Plateau, Central Java. February
1979, two eruptions and poisonous, suffocating gases caused the death of 149 people.

Disaster in the past may have been caused by ground movements and tectonic earthquakes
which are often inherent in volcanic outburst. Examples of these are the earthquakes in Bali in 1963,
which took place after the eruption of the Agung Volcano, and the earthquake in west Java in the
1960s, caused by the Salak volcano, So far, a direct relationship between tectonic earthquakes and
volcanic eruptions has not been observed.

Tectonic earthquakes may also be the cause of Tsunamis. This phenomenon occurred during
the Krakatau catastrophe in 1883, and caused the death of the people living in the coastal areas that
this earthquake was caused by sea waves, which in turn were the result of the collapse of the
Krakatau volcano into the sea. This explosion was area of the most violent eruptions times, and its
collapse formed a caldera in the seabed.

The menace of Volcanoes is general is greater than that of other natural disasters. If an
eruption occurred in the Toba region, for example, where floatable deposits are found in great
quantity, it would entail a catastrophe. In such cases man is powerless.

Volcanic eruptions, besides clamming thousands of lives and causing loss of property and
damage to villages, are on the other hand, beneficial to agriculture. The ash they produce is responsible
for the fertile soil around active volcanoes. Volcanoes, with their craters, lakes and solfatars are places
of interest for local as well as foreign tourists. Volcanic rock is used the manufactures of building
materials, and volcanic heat is capable of generating electricity.

44. The main idea of paragraph 5 is……

a. the benefits of volcanic eruptions
b. the ash produced by active volcanoes
c. the fertile soil around active volcanoes
d. the disasters caused by volcanic eruptions
e. the damaged villages around active volcanoes
