a tiny fraction of Earth’s freshwater

Answer B, only a tiny part of earth's freshwater. Most is frozen in glaciers.

Perhaps surprisingly, lakes and rivers constitute a tiny proportion of the world's total freshwater, so answer (b) is correct. Most of the freshwater on our planet is in fact locked up in ice and glaciers, some 68%. The majority of the rest, 30%, is actually underground, in springs and other groundwater feeders. That leaves just 2% that makes up all the rivers, lakes, ponds and other visible freshwater reservoirs that we see in our day-to-day lives.

Lakes and rivers constitute a tiny fraction of Earths freshwater. The majority of the Earth's water (97%) is found in oceans. But this is not fresh water. The biggest part of fresh water is found in glaciers and icecaps, and some lakes and rivers. So, it is a realy tiny fraction of the Earth's freshwater that lakes and rivers constitute.

(B) A tiny fraction of earth's freshwater

Explanation:

Lakes and the rivers are mainly constitute of the tiny fraction of the earth freshwater. The water in the lakes and the river are mainly comes from the rain, streams, melting ice and the groundwater.

Approximately 2% of the freshwater are found in the lakes and the rivers which is present in the form of tiny fraction, the rest is the saline or the ocean based water. The 1% of the freshwater is easily found in the glaciers and the also in the snowfields only.

Therefore, Option (B) is correct option.
