Solution

The correct options are
A Animal waste from tanneries
C Sewage waste
D Industrial wastes
Sewage waste, animal waste from tanneries, and untreated industrial wastes are some of the major sources of river pollution. To tackle this ever-growing problem, the Government has started some initiatives. A good example is the Ganga Action Plan (GAP) of 1985. Ten years later, in 1995, it was expanded to cover other rivers under the National River Conservation Plan, popularly known as NRCP. The main objective of the NRCP is to improve the quality of water in rivers.
