A) Water is very valuable resource which is recycled in nature. Life is not possible without water. 3/4th part of earth is covered with water. Out of this nearly 97% of water is in seas and oceans. As this water is salty, we cannot use it for drinking and irrigation. 2% of water is found in glaciers and ice-caps. Only 1% is fresh water. This is found in rivers and lakes.


 According to UN, 80 nations are suffering from water crisis problems. In India too, states like Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa are in severe shortage of drinking water.
