A litter trap with 2 m3 cage is situated in a twisty river, where 1 m3 of plastic waste is taken along monthly.


#1. 1. How do you catch the most litter?

The correct answer is C.

A, B and D are suboptimal constructions, because not all litter along the width of the river will be caught. A and b aim for the outer bend, but often litter is slowly washed up at the inner bend as well.

#2. 2. The litter trap designed for this river appears to be too small. What can be a reason?

Options A is wrong: it will not influence the amount of litter entering, C is wrong because this is a conscious choice made, D could be an option but the effect will not be as large as in B, therefore B will be the correct answer.

#3. 3. What can be a reason not to block the full width of the river with a guiding arm and litter trap?

The correct answer is B.

This is mainly because all other options are eventually possible but these diadvantages can be taken into account while designing.
