  2. Reverse osmosis
  3. Electrolysis
  4. Both B and C

Answer: D. Both B and C

Reverse osmosis and electrolysis reduces the salinity of water.

Solution

Carbon Filter- Activated carbon is used to remove chemicals causing objectionable tastes or orders to water such as H2S.

Reverse osmosis- Reverse osmosis is the best method of water softening. It purify water without the use of chemicals

  • It gives us clean and pure water by removing all the impurities present in water
  • It also reduces the salinity of water.

 Electrolysis

  • Electrolysis is the process  of splitting the water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of an electrolyser.
  • It reduces the salinity of water.

Hence reverse osmosis and electrolysis reduces the salinity of water.
