      The generator

    • B.

      The river

    • C.

      Workmen with tools

    Correct Answer
    B. The river
    Explanation
    When Doon first entered the tunnels, he heard a loud sound. The most plausible explanation for this sound is that it was the sound of the river. The tunnels were built underground and it is common for underground tunnels to have rivers or streams flowing through them. The sound of rushing water can be quite loud, especially in an enclosed space like a tunnel. Therefore, it is likely that the loud sound Doon heard was the sound of the river flowing through the tunnels.
