      True

    • B.

    True or False. They knew a tsunami was coming because the water pulled away from the shore.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the water pulled away from the shore, which indicates a phenomenon known as a tsunami precursor. This phenomenon occurs when a tsunami wave approaches the shore, causing the water to recede rapidly. This is caused by the initial withdrawal of water before the massive wave hits the coast. Therefore, it can be concluded that the given statement is true.

    True or False. Everyone except Boca made it to the top of the cliff before the tsunami came.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says "Everyone except Boca made it to the top of the cliff before the tsunami came." Since the answer is False, it means that not everyone except Boca made it to the top of the cliff before the tsunami came. This suggests that at least one other person did not make it to the top before the tsunami arrived.

      Kama

    • D.

    Explanation
    Kama is the correct answer because in Hawaiian culture, storytelling through chants and hula is a traditional way of passing down stories and legends.

Therefore, it is likely that Kama would be the one to tell the story of surfing and the tsunami using chants and the hula.
