Solution

The correct option is A By flooding the land with saline water.
The top layer of the soil is most fertile. It is essential to sustain crops. During cyclone, the strong winds wash the top layer of the soil. Also, the water that gets washed onto the soil is saline. This deposits a lot of salt in the soil that remains there and causes soil to lose its fertility.
