(Section- B)                                                                                             (1× 15=15)

Directions(Q.21-25):-Answer the following questions based on the given paragraph, diagram, and concept taught in class.

One way of increasing water availability is to collect rainwater and store it for later use. Collecting rainwater in this way is called rainwater harvesting. The basic idea behind rainwater harvesting is “Catch water where it falls”. This rainwater can be used during times of water scarcity.

Here are two techniques of rainwater harvesting:-

  1. Rooftop rainwater harvesting: In this system, the rainwater is collected from the rooftop to a storage tank, through pipes. This water may contain soil from the roof and need filtering before it is used. Instead of collecting rainwater in the tank, the pipes can go directly into a pit in the ground. This water then seeps into the soil to recharge or refill the groundwater.
  2. Another option is to allow water to go into the ground directly from the roadside drains that collect rainwater.
