Direction for question 6-10 :


Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the
information provided in the passage

Ocean water plays an indispensable role in supporting life. The great ocean basins
hold about 300 million cubic miles of water. From the vast amount, about 80,000
cubic miles of water are sucked into the atmosphere each year by evaporation and
returned by precipitation and drainage to the ocean. More than 24,000 cubic miles of
rain descend annually upon the continents. This vast amount is required to replenish
the lakes and streams, springs and water tables on which all flora and fauna are
dependent. Thus, the
hydrosphere permits organic existence.

The hydrosphere has strange characteristics because water has properties unlike
those of any other liquid. One anomaly is that water upon freezing expands by about
19 percent, whereas most liquids contract on cooling. For this reason, ice floats on
water bodies instead of sinking to the bottom. If the ice sank, the hydrosphere would
soon be frozen solidly, except for a thin layer of surface-melt water during the
summer season. Thus, all aquatic life would be destroyed and the interchange of
warm and cold current, which
moderates climate, would be notably absent.

Another outstanding characteristic of water is that water has a heat capacity which is
the highest of all liquids and solids except ammonia. This characteristic enables the
oceans to absorb and store vast quantities of heat, thereby often preventing climatic
extremes. In addition, water dissolves more substances than any other liquid. It is
this characteristic which helps make oceans a great storehouse for minerals which
have been washed down from the continents. In several areas of the world, these
minerals are being
commercially exploited. Solar evaporation of salt is widely practiced, potash is
extracted from the Dead Sea and magnesium is produced from sea water along the
American Gulf Coast.
6) The author’s main purpose in this passage is to:

A) Describe the properties and uses of water


B) Illustrate the importance of conserving water
