Directions : In the following passage there are blanks, each of which has been numbered. These numbers are printed below the passage and against each, five words/phrases are suggested, one of which best fits the blank appropriately. Find out the appropriate word/phrase in each case. The Klamath, which flows through Oregon and Northern California and into the Pacific Ocean, is _____________ (109) from drought and infrastructure problems. That’s caused trouble, not just for the fish in the river, but also for the tribes and farmers who ______________ (110) on it for day-to-day living. Drought conditions are so bad this year that the U.S. Department of Agriculture _____________ (111) $15 million to support farmers who don’t have enough water for their crops. Klamath Basin tribes are also struggling to feed their people, but so far they haven’t ___________ (112) such support. In fact, the Pacific Fisheries Management Council cut back the Yurok Tribe’s salmon allotment to little more than half of what is needed. The water in the lower basin is too warm. Why? There isn’t ____________ (113) water in the river for it to flow properly, so it stagnates in the sun. This is partly ____________ (114) to drought — and to constant ______________ (115) over water rights upstream — but it’s made worse by dams. Warm water allows fish diseases to spread more easily, which is why a massive number of juvenile salmon died this year on their way to the ocean.
