Correct Answer: (d) A family gets three buckets of water per person per day

Explanation: According to the UN recommendations a minimum of 50 liters of water should be available to each of us per person per day for drinking, washing, cooking and cleaning. This amount is about two and a half buckets of water per person per day. Therefore, a family getting three buckets of water per person per day does not show a water shortage.
