Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions (22 to 27) :

The popular view of towns and cities in developing countries and of urbanization process is
that despite the benefits and comforts it brings, the emergence of such cities connotes
environmental degradation, generation of slums and squatters, urban poverty, unemployment,
crimes, lawlessness, traffic chaos etc. But what is the reality ? Given the unprecedental increase
in urban population over the last 50 years from 300 million in 1950 to 2 billion in 2000 in

In general, the urban quality of life has improved in terms of availability of water and
sanitation, power, health and education, communication and transport. By way of illustration, a
large number of urban residents have been provided with improved water in urban areas in

Asia’s largest countries such as China, India, Indonesia and Philippines. Despite that, the access
to improved water in terms of percentage of total urban population seems to have declined
during the last decade of 20th century, though in absolute numbers, millions of additional
urbanites, have been provided improved services. These countries have made significant
progress in the provision of sanitation services too, together, providing for an additional
population of more than 293 million citizens within a decade (1990-2000). These improvements
must be viewed against the backdrop of rapidly increasing urban population, fiscal crunch and
