Solution

The correct option is C the aquifer gets depleted
An aquifer is an underground layer of water-bearing rock. As we pump more and more water from an aquifer, the water in it depletes. If water is withdrawn from the aquifer at a faster rate than it is replenished, either by infiltration from the surface or from streams, then the water table can become lower.
