Question

There seems to be "dirt" everywhere you go outdoors. Does this mean that soil is an abundant resource? Explain your reasoning.

Solution

Verified

The soil is considered to be an important resource like water and air. This exists freely in nature, but it is not abundant. Its loss and degradation during soil erosion, acidification, compaction, and pollution do not allow it to recover quickly; hence, it is a non-renewable resource. This is the reason why farmers and gardeners exert great efforts in conserving it.
