Question

Indonesia was colonised mainly by ___________ in 1800.
  1. British
  2. French
  3. Dutch
  4. USA


Solution

The correct option is C Dutch
The Indonesians were colonised by the Dutch in the 1800s. The natives were forced to produce commercial crops such as coffee, sugar, and spices, to be paid as tax to the Dutch. This regime was hard on the natives, as commercial farming created a shortage of food grains. This led to acute poverty and famines.
