Answer questions 1-5 which are based on the reading passage below

Water Filter

 An excellent invention is made to bring clean water to the third world, the materials are all down to earth even though science is extremely effective. Some amount of clay yesterday’s coffee grounds and cow manure are used to bring out the clean and safe drinking water.

ANU materials scientist Mr. Tony Flynn developed new technology which lets the water filters be made from the materials that you can find normally and using cow manure to fire it on the ground. The filter is tested and found to remove common pathogens (disease-producing organisms) including E-coli. The filters are simple and inexpensive to make compared to other water filtering devices. “They are very simple to explain and demonstrate and can be made by anyone, anywhere,” says Mr. Flynn. “They don’t require any western technology. All you need is terracotta clay, a compliant cow and a match.”

The production of the filters is not a complex thing. One need to have a handful of dry, crushed clay, and should mix it with a handful of organic material, for example used tea leaves, coffee grounds or rice hulls, add required water to shape up it a stiff biscuit-like mixture and  to form a cylindrical pot which one end closed, then dry it in the sun.Mr. Flynn claims used coffee grounds are giving the best results to date. Afterwards, pots should be surrounded with straw; place them in a mound of cow manure, light the straw and then top up the burning manure as needed. In less than 60 minutes the filters are finished. The walls of the finished pot should be about as thick as an adult’s index. The cow manure properties are important as the fuel could reach a temperature of 700 degrees in thirty minutes and will be up to 950 degrees after another 20 to 30 minutes. As manure is high in organic material, it can burn up readily and quickly.
