Solution

The correct option is D Scorched-earth policy
Scorched-earth policy was a military strategy adopted by the Dutch during the Second World War. Java was occupied by the Japanese at the time. Dutch troops deliberately destroyed sawmills, and burnt huge piles of giant teak logs so that the Japanese could not use them.
