Solution

The correct option is A Open the doors and windows
The wind blows from a high-pressure region to a low-pressure region. When strong winds blow over a weak thatched roof, it creates low pressure over it and a high pressure inside the hut causing the roof to blow off. Opening the doors and windows is the most suitable option as it reduces the pressure difference and prevents the roof from being blown off.
