解答這些英文題目並翻譯文章跟答案

Water is the most important natural resource in our daily lives. However, only 1% of the world's water is usable to us. About 97% is salty sea water, and 2% is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. Thus that 1% of the world's water supply is a precious commodity necessary for our survival. Demand for fresh water has increased largely in the last 5 decades, and is still rising. The need for fresh water has caused severe problems.

There are a number of reasons that lead to the growing crisis. The first is water waste. Around 70% of the fresh water is utilized for growing crops. It takes 1,000 tons of water to grow just one ton of wheat. Unfortunately, about 60% of that water is wasted. Better irrigation methods are needed to help the situation.

Pollution is also a big problem. Many of the world’s great rivers, such as the Ganges in India, are seriously polluted. Nevertheless, 350 million people rely on the Ganges. Their health is

influenced by the health of river. Steps are being taken to clean up some rivers, but it is expensive and time-consuming.

The overuse of water has also become a huge threat to water supplies. In America, underground sources provide 95% of the country’s fresh water. Levels are rapidly falling because a large proportion of water is used for crops and livestock. The key is to reduce water demand and to improve management of water reserves.
