Question

The Andaman holiday island of Viber islands has been plunged into a poisonous grey haze caused by illegal forest fires in neighbouring Neil islands. Reduced visibility caused passenger planes from Thai-land destined for Port Blair airport to turn around on Tuesday. The noxious fumes which have been spreading for weeks have shut down many other islands of south-east Asia. Tourist spots have been closed in and the local swimming championship cup scheduled to be held on Rutland island was cancelled on Wednesday. A beach volleyball championship in Barren island scheduled on Thursday was also abandoned.
  1. Illegal fires have resulted in poisonous smoke spreading through the neighbouring islands of Viber.
  2. A poisonous haze has spread over various islands of south-east Asia due to the fires in Viber islands-one of the biggest islands of Andaman and it has interrupted certain activities in those islands.
  3. Forest fires of Viber islands have resulted in spread of poisonous gases across various parts of south-east Asia and have put a stop to all the normal activities across islands over the last few weeks.
  4. Illegal forest fires in Neil islands have spread poisonous gases across Viber island and many south-east Asian islands over the last few weeks, and have caused shut-down of certain normal activities in these islands.


Solution

The correct option is D Illegal forest fires in Neil islands have spread poisonous gases across Viber island and many south-east Asian islands over the last few weeks, and have caused shut-down of certain normal activities in these islands.
Illegal forest fires in the area have spread across poisonous gases in other neighbouring regions, due to which few normal societal activities have shut down. We can also infer that this fire has spread across various other islands in that area. (IV) best captures the essence. (I) is narrow, it just talks about spreading of poisonous gases and not its consequence on human activities. (II) is narrow because it just talks about interrupted activities in Viber islands when the passage also mentions of other neighbouring islands. (III) is incorrect because it talks about interruption in all normal activities in the area whereas passage talks about only certain such activities, we cannot infer that all normal activities were interrupted.
