The correct answer is option d, that is to say, of the glaciers and the polar ice caps. Despite the amount of water present in glaciers and ice caps is a small proportion compared with the total of water found in and on the Earth, shows a large proportion of the world's total fresh water. On the basis of the data, around 1.7 percent of all the water found on Earth is locked up in snow and ice, however, the most of all the fresh water on the planet, that is to say, around 68 percent is captured in glaciers and ice caps.
