Erosion is the removal of solids like sediment, soil, rock and other particles, in the natural environment. It usually occurs because of the movement of wind, water, or ice: by down slope movement of soil and other material under the force of gravity; or by living organisms, such as burrowing animals, in the case of bio-erosion.
Erosion is a natural process but in many places it is increased by human land use. Poor land use practices include deforestation, overgrazing, unmanaged construction activity and road-building. Land that is used for the production of agricultural crops generally experiences a significance greater rate of erosion than that of land under natural vegetation. This is particularly true if ploughing is used, which reduces vegetation cover on the surface of the soil and disturbs both soil structure and plant roots that would otherwise hold the soil in place. However, improved land use practices can limit erosion, using techniques such as terrace-building, conservation ploughing practices, and tree planting.
A certain amount of erosion is natural and, in fact, healthy for ecosystem. For examples, gravels continuously move downstream in watercourses. Excessive erosion, however, does cause problems, such as receiving water sedimentation, ecosystem damage and outright loss of soil

34. From the text above we can conclude that ….
a. erosion can be avoided
b. erosion is bad for environment
c. erosion is caused only by human activity
d. erosion caused by human is worse than by nature
35. From the text we know that erosion is caused by ….
a. Terrace-building, conservation ploughing practices, and tree planting
b. Receiving water sedimentation, ecosystem damage and outright loss of soil
c. The movement of wind, water, ice, down slope movement of soil, and bio-erosion
d. reforestation, managed construction activity and road-building
36. What is the main idea of paragraph two?
a. Certain amount of erosion is good for ecosystem
b. Human can avoid erosion by improved land use
c. Erosion is natural process
d. Ploughing disturbs both soil structure and plant roots
