Difficulties arose when for the first time the barns were almost empty and the new harvest was still a long way off. This made Kbo lwo wild with great anger. In his hunger, he destroyed all the houses and even all the temples. It made the Balinese turn to rage.

So, they came together to plan steps to oppose this powerful giant by using his stupidity. They asked Kbo Iwo to build them a very deep well, and rebuild all the houses and temples he had destroyed. After they fed Kbo Iwo, he began to dig a deep hole.

One day he had eaten too much, he fell asleep in the hole. The oldest man in the village gave a sign, and the villagers began to throw the limestone they had collected before into the hole. The limestone made the water inside the hole boiling. Kbo Iwo was buried alive. Then the water in the well rose higher and higher until at last it overflowed and formed Lake Batur.

The term of “tsunami” comes from the Japanese which means harbour (“tsu”) and wave (“nami”).       A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or the sea is rapidly displaced on a massive scale.

A tsunami can be generated when the sea floor abruptly deforms and vertically displaces the overlying water. Such large vertical movements of the earth’s crust can occur at plate boundaries. Subduction of earthquakes is particularly effective in generating tsunamis, and occurs where denser oceanic plates slip under continental plates.

As the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium, it radiates across the ocean like ripples on a pond.

Tsunami always bring great damage. Most of the damage is caused by the huge mass of water behind the initial wave front, as the height of the sea keeps rising fast and floods powerfully into the coastal area.

A.                 the examination is still used for measuring students’ qualifications.

B.                 all people agree the examination as the quality control.

C.                 the examination is not necessary to use for measuring the students’ abilities.

D.                 the examination is used as means of measuring students’ abilities annually before ending their education.

E.                  the government obliges educational practitioners conducting the examination for increasing the quality.
