Established in 1902 in southwestern Oregon, Crater Lake National Park consists of 183,000 acres. It is home to spectacular Crater Lake, which at 1,958 feet is the deepest lake in the United States and one of the deepest in the world. The lake was created by the eruption of a volcano, Mount Mazama, more than 7,000 years ago. Surrounding glaciers filled the caldera (the volcano’s basin) with clear blue water. The lake is not all there is to see. The park boasts 680 plant species, 74 types of mammals, and 158 kinds of birds.

Crater Lake is considered one of the deepest lakes in both the United States and the world.

Explanation

The passage specifies that Crater Lake is considered the deepest lake in the U.S. and one of the deepest in the world. From this context, the qualifier “one of the deepest lakes in both the United States and the world” is implied. The other options are false.
