(ii) The process by which water continually changes its form and circulates between oceans atmosphere and land is known as the water cycle.

1.Oceans                                       97.20     Saline water

2.Ice caps and glaciers                  2.00

8.Biosphere                                   0.001

9.Soil moisture                              0.095

(2) The water is found on the earth's surface in oceans, seas, bays, gulfs, lakes, ponds, rivers, etc.

The water portion of the earth's surface is known as hydrosphere. The total volume of water in the hydrosphere, which is fixed and never changes, is estimated at about 1400  million cubic kilometers. One cubic kilometer has about 1000 million tons of water.

Water Cycle

(a) The water always changes its form as liquid.,solid and gas.
