Solution

Three factors affecting inland water transport are :

  1. The rivers and canals should have a regular flow of sufficient water.
  2. Due to the silting of the river bed, the depth of water is reduced and hence creates a problem for navigation. Also, the desilting of the river bed is costly.
  3. If in the river course there are waterfalls and sharp bends there is an obstruction in the development of waterways.
