Correct option is D)

Only 2.5% of total water present on the surface of the earth is present as freshwater which can be used for drinking and is potable. Rest of it is present in the form of seawater which is not salt-free and cannot be used for drinking. So, freshwater should be used very judiciously and used for drinking.
So, option D is the correct answer.
