If the word highlighted is incorrect and needs improvement then choose any one option suggested given below. But if the given word is correct and requires no change then mark (5) i.e. no change required as your answer. 

Before man-made climate change kicked upon (1) and well before “Day Zero” in Cape Town, where taps may run dry in early May the global water crisis was upon us. Freshwater resources around the world were already badly blurred (2) before heat-trapping carbon emissions from 

fossil fuels began to warm Earth’s surface and affect rainfall. Many major rivers diverted, dammed, overexploited no longer reach the sea. Aquifers millennia in the making are being sucked (3) dry. Pollution in many forms is tainting water above ground and below. Cape 

Town, where the drought was declared a “national disaster” was not especially support (4) by any of these problems. Indeed, in2014 the half-dozen reservoirs that kept (5) the 
South African city’s four million people brimmed with rainwater. But that was before a record-breaking, three-year, once-every-three-centuries drought reduced them to a quarter capacity or less. Today, Capetonians are restricted to 50 litres a day (13.2 US gallons) less than runs down the drain when the average American takes a shower. Climate scientists surpassed (6) trouble, but it arrived ahead of schedule, said Helen Zille, premier of the Western Cape province. “Climate change was to have hit us in 2025,” she told a local news outlet. “The South Africa 

Weather Services have told me that their models don’t work anymore.” Worldwide, the water crises hydra has been quietly growing for decades. Since 2015, the World Economic Forum’ annual Global Risk Report has consistently ranked “water crises” as among the global threats with the greatest potential impact above natural disasters, mass migration and cyberattacks. 

“Across the densely-populated Indo-Gangetic Plain” home to more than 600 million people in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh “groundwater is being pump about (7) at an unsustainable and terrifying rate,” said Graham Cogley, a professor emeritus at Trent University in Ontario Canada. More than half the water in the same basin is undrinkable and unusable for irrigation due to increased (8) salt and arsenic levels, according to a recent study. Groundwater provides drinking water to at least half of humanity, and accounts for more than 40% of water used for irrigation. But underground aquifers do not fill at (9) swiftly, as a reservoir does after a heavy rain. Their spongy rock can take centuries to fully recharge, which makes them a nonrenewable resource on a human timescale. As a result, many of the world’s regions have passed the threshold that Peter Gleick, president-emeritus of the Pacific Institute and author of “The World’s Water,” has called “peak water”. “Today people live in places where we are effectively using all the achievable (10) renewable water, or, even worse, living on borrowed time by over pumping non-renewable ground water”.
