Solution :-

Water is very essential for our life. It consists of many dissolved nutrients that are required for us and also for plants and animals.  Demineralised water is free from all soluble minerals and so it cannot be used for drinking purpose. After adding desired minerals in specific amounts that are required for growth, this water can be made useful.
