Why is water important for life?

Without liquid water there would be no life on the Earth. No other planet has liquid water, and hence no life is possible on any planet other than the Earth. Water is found everywhere – in milk, vegetables, fruit, meat, air, and ground. Water is the habitat for a large number of plants and animals. Fish, algae, crustaceans, and many more organisms live in the oceans. Frogs jump in puddles and ponds, and sea birds move on the surface of water. Water carries ships, from small boats to giant container ships, which are used for transportation.
