B. Toba (Indonesia)

C. Etna (Sicily)

D. Stromboli (Sicily)

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The largest volcano crater in the world is Toba (Indonesia). Caldera lakes in contrast can be quite large and long-lasting. For instance, Lake Toba (Indonesia) formed after its eruption around 75,000 years ago. At a size of around 100 km (60 miles) by 30 km (18 miles) in extent and 505 m (1,656 ft) deep at its deepest point, Lake Toba is the largest crater lake in the world.
