    Correct Answer
    A. Fire 
    Explanation
    Fire causes the massive destruction of the city because it spreads rapidly and engulfs buildings, infrastructure, and other structures in flames. It consumes everything in its path, releasing intense heat and toxic smoke, leading to the collapse of structures and loss of life. Fire can also trigger explosions, further exacerbating the destruction. Additionally, the heat generated by the fire can melt objects and cause secondary damage, such as the weakening of support structures.

    Correct Answer
    C. Dynamite 
    Explanation
    Dynamite was used in quenching fire because it contains a highly explosive substance called nitroglycerin. When ignited, dynamite produces a rapid and intense explosion that can displace oxygen, smothering the fire and extinguishing it. This makes dynamite an effective tool for firefighting in certain situations where traditional methods like water may not be sufficient.

    During an earthquake, communication systems such as telephone lines, cell towers, and internet connections can be severely damaged or disrupted.
