8. Read the passage below carefully and answer the questions that follow.

 The English say “necessity is the mother of inventions. This is because all the Major discoveries and inventions are caused by the need to solve certain problem. Whether invented the spoon may fallen sick several times because of eating with dirty hands. Similarly airplanes were inverted because people want to travel faster. In other words when there is a problem people begin to think of a solution.

 Now we know that sea water is very salty. If you live on an island which surrounded by salty sea water would you allow yourself to go thirsty? It was probably from someone who lived near the sea water would you allow yourself to go thirsty? It was probably from someone who lived near the sea and went thirst many years and days that the idea of distillation came. We can get fresh water for drinking from salty water through distillation.

 First put five liters of water in to a metal container and mix it with about one kilo of salt and stir the water until the salt is completely dissolved.

 Secondly, pour the solution into a metal container that has a tight lid. The lid should have a hole where a narrow pipe should be fixed. Let the middle length of this pipe be put in a basin of cold water. The other end of this pipe should be directed to a clean, empty container.

 Thirdly, put a source of heat for example a gas cooker flame, under the metal container the water and salt, now observe what happens. This experiment should strictly be done as instructed.

 When the salt and water is heated, vapor are cream is formed. This vapor passes through the pipe and is cooled by the cold water in the basin. When this happens we say condensation has taken place and vapor which is gas became liquid. This liquid is lastly collected in a container.

 As the salt and water solution continues being heated all that will remain is salt. Fresh drinking water on the other hand will be collected at the other hand. The salt and the water will once again be separated. When people who live near sea run short of drinking water they can resort to this simple distillation and quench their thirst.

QUESTIONS:

(a) What is the best title for the passage?

(b) Why makes people to invent things?

(c ) According to the passage, how can we get fresh water from salty water?

(d ) Why was the spoon invented?

(e) What do we call the process of removing salt from water?
