Cause & Effect Example

The Great Potato Famine

In 1845, a blight (disease) devastated Ireland’s potato crop, and it returned the next few years. The potato blight was not peculiar to Ireland; in fact, it began in North America. In the midst of the potato famine, corn, cattle, and dairy products continues to be produced in Ireland. But rather than give these foodstuffs to the starving, landlords sold them abroad for profits….The nation lost a third of its population during the 1845-1855 famine - more than a million died from starvation or disease. At least another 1 3/4 million fled their native land - 8 in 10 bound for the United States, most of the rest for Canada.

The most important result of the Great Potato Famine was

A. North America received large numbers of immigrants.

B. The potato blight spread to Germany.

C. Landlords willingly gave their surpluses of corn and dairy products to the starving people of Ireland.

D. Ireland’s population was reduced by half as a result of the potato famine.
