Read the passage below and then answer questions 39-50.

Water is one of the most vital natural resources for life on Earth. The availability and quality of water determines not only where people can live,
but also their quality of life. It is not enough to have plenty of fresh water if it is not available when and where it is needed. Only five per cent of the world's water is deemed fit  for consumption and this ngure is shrinking by the day. Thus, it must be treated as a limited and precious resource

Without water, all human activities would be affected and come to a standstill. Water is essential for commercial use which includes fresh water for motels, hotels, restaurants, office buildings, other commercial facilities and civilian and military institutions. Domestic water use would be for drinking, food preparation, bathing, washing, flushing toilets, and watering lawns and gardens. The other uses would be for industries such as power generations and for agriculture.

The availability of water cannot be separated from development. In fact, there cannot be development without a reliable supply of water. Water must be in sufficient supply for an area to develop and continue developing. In the twenty-first century, the demand to water has to be managed more effectively within the available supply instead of simply building more dams. More needs to be done like adopting water saving technologies, recycling of water and water harvesting.

The demand for water increases year by year as the human population grows bigger. However, the supply of clean, useable water does not. Instead, it shrinks due to pollution, deforestation and global warming. If a balance is not obtained, our sources of water will diminish very fast.

There are several ways in which an individual can save this precious commodity. When washing dishes or hands, don't let the water run while rinsing. Run your washing . machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1 000 gallons of water. Minimize evaporation by watering plants early in the morning when the temperature is cooler. Replacing the traditional shower head with a water-saving one could save about a gallon of water each time.
