The Legend of Toba Lake

There was a handsome man named Batara Guru Sahala, who enjoyed fishing so much. One day, he caught a fish. He was surprised to find out that the fish could talk. The fish begged him to set it free.

Batara Guru Sahala could not bear it. He made the fish free. As soon as it was free. the fish changed into a very beautiful woman. Batara Guru Sahala fell in love with that  fish-woman and wanted to marry her. Batara Guru Sahala promised to keep the secret that she had been a fish and would never tell anybody about it.

They were married happily. They had two daughters. One day Batara Guru Sahala got very angry with his daughters. He could not control his temper. He shouted angrily and got the word of fish to his daughters. The daughters were crying. They found their mother and told her about it.

The mother was very angry. Batara Guru Sahala broke his promise. The mother was shouting angrily, then the earth began to shake. Volcanoes started to erupt. The earth formed a very big hole. People believe that the big hole became a lake. Today the lake is known as Toba lake.


From the text, we know that...

  1. Sahala's wife was a captured fish

  2. the daughters changed into fish too

  3. Sahala broke his promise to his wife

  4. the daughters and father are fish


Dari bacaan tersebut kita tahu bahwa Sahala melanggar janji kepada isterinya seperti yang ada pada kalimat kedua paragraf terakhir “Batara Guru broke his promise”. Maka jawaban C adalah jawaban yang tepat.
