Solution

  1. Figure A shows the maximum area under vegetation. 
    Figure B shows development in form of settlements and transportation routes.
  2. The sweeping portion from north-west to south-east is visible in the satellite image of 2019. This is because the village is located at the foothills. The rain and slope were responsible for the mudslide. Heavy rainfall and the absence of vegetation aggravated the situation. In 2011, vegetation was thick but in 2019 deforestation has been done extensively for farming practices.
  3. Climate plays an important role for the disaster. Heavy rainfall makes the soil to move from the surface of the mountain towards the foothills.
  4. Deforestation and the absence of vegetation are responsible for this.
