5. Base your answer to question 5 on the passage below and on your knowledge of social studies. … Monsoons are relied upon throughout the country to provide water for growing crops. Heavy monsoons, however, can bring floods that often have a high death toll. These floods have been exacerbated [made worse] by deforestation of the hills for industrial and agricultural purposes. It is a fine balance between having plenty of water to flood the rice fields and having too much so that crops, homes, and even lives are lost. The alternative to the floods may be famines. However, India’s infrastructure can now deal successfully with these: When the monsoon fails in one area, the army is able to move supplies to the drought-stricken area. As a result of this organization, few lives were lost in the Maharashtra famines of 1965–66 and 1974–75, while more than two million people died in the Bengal famine of 1943. —Louise Nicholson, National Geographic Traveler: India, 2007 5 Based on this passage, how have the negative effects of the monsoons been reduced in recent years? (1) The army is building dams to hold back the floods. (2) Farmers have begun to grow crops that require less water. (3) Home construction in flood areas has been controlled by government regulations. (4) An improved infrastructure makes it possible to bring supplies to areas in need of help.   1
