Read the comprehension and answer the following question:

The beginning of ice cream can be traced back to at least the 5th century B.C. In the early hours references comprise the Roman ruler Nero (A.D. 38-69) who ordered ice to be brought from the hills and mixed with fruit juice and toppings, and King Tang (A.D. 619-99) of Shang, China who had a technique of making ice and milk mixture. Ice cream was probably brought from China back to Europe. Over a point of time, procedures for ices, fruit juices, and milk ices developed and presented in the stylish Italian and French majestic courts. The first ice creams were a right splendid delicacy, and ice cream sustained to be a costly treat until American dairy man named Jacob Fussell set up the first and tasty ice-cream plant, in the year 1855. Since then the beginning of wafers, cones, and solid chocolate-ices have made ice cream ever more well-liked.

The first ice-covered desserts were made-up by the Arabs and Chinese over 3000 years ago. The Khalifs of the country Baghdad were trailblazers who drank cool fruit syrups along with snow. This scrumptious drink was initially called "sharbet" or it was also called as fruit ice, in Arabic. Alexander the Great and the Roman ruler Nero ate fruit flavored syrup mixed with snow or ice, but these were ancestors of sorbet to a certain extent than ice cream, and most likely the first people to take pleasure in dairy ice cream were English.  In England during the 17th century, it's been said that King James II in 1688, was presented with something like ice-cream, while his banished brother, Charles II, previously in 1665, was known to have consumed ice-cream in Paris. Around twenty five years later on, in 1875, an ice-cream industrial unit was set up in London for the profit of a large number of Italians migrant who came at that time. Ice-cream is said to have become truly well-liked in the year 1925, when British Thomas Wall, a sausage producer in Acton, was concerned that few sausages will be sold during the summer seasons, so he began to produce the first covered blocks of ice-cream as a substitute.  It was an immediate achievement. In the United States, the first president, known as George Washington, was said to be enthusiastic on ice-cream in the year 1795.In 1835, Augustus Jackson, a manufacturer from Philadelphia, formed new recipes for producing ice-cream, and in the year 1845, Nancy Johnson untested a hand cranked refrigerator that recognized the essential method of producing ice cream which is still used today. William Young untested the alike "Johnson Patent Ice-Cream refrigerator" in the year 1850. In the year 1855, Jacob Fussell, a milk dealer of Baltimore, USA, set himself up as a dealer of ice-cream to new milkman, creating the world's first ice-cream industrial unit. Now days we find Ice-cream is endlessly made, with all kinds of flavors mixed with different seasonal fruits, artificial flavors and cream.
