Answer : There are many human activities that cause and increase pollution in the environment like air, water and soil. They are

  • Industrial effluents that are released into air cause air pollution, and industrial wastes that are released into water bodies cause water pollution.

  • Excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides that are used in agriculture fields causes soil pollution.

  • Use of automobiles, cars, and bikes releases pollutants into the atmosphere leads to pollution.

  • Use of non degradable plastic, and release of bundles of these plastic into water bodies causes water pollution.

yes, the isolation of these activities to specific and limited areas help in reducing pollution:


  • The isolation of industries to the areas which are far away from the traffic area leads to the reduction of air pollution in these areas to some extent.

  • Also keeping the more energy efficient operations in industries tends to reduce the amount of pollution.

  • If all the industries and sewage wastes are collected from all the areas, before they get discharged, they should be treated and should be released.

  • When the plastic waste is collected and dumped in out yards of the place reduces its effects.

  • Reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides leads to a reduction in soil pollution.
