Explain why, even clear, transparent and odourless water may not always be safe for drinking.

Answer :

Even the clear, transparent and odourless water may not always be safe for drinking because it may contain pollutants. These pollutants include the chemicals which may be discharged from the Industries such as oil refineries, paper factories, textile and sugar mills and chemical factories. These chemicals include arsenic, lead and flourides which are very toxic to human beings, plants and animals. These pollutants can also be chemicals used in farming such as pesticides and weedicides. All these chemicals dissolve in water and are washed into water bodies from the fields. They also seep into the ground and pollute ground water.
