  • Write down what you think. Swap your answers with a partner.

Mark: Each x 4 and Bonus + 1

TOTAL: 40

AMERICA ________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

INDIA_____________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

IRELAND__________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

CANADA _________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

YUGOSLAVIA__________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

ISRAEL_________________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

RUSSIA_________________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

SOUTH AFRICA__________________________________________________________________

4 + 1 = 5

1 – 10 = 1; 11 – 20 = 2; 21 – 30 = 3 ; 31 – 40 = 4

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
