    Correct Answer
    A. Septic systems
    Explanation
    Septic systems are a way of collecting and treating water in a rural area. They are underground wastewater treatment structures that are commonly used in areas without centralized sewer systems. These systems collect and treat household wastewater, allowing the water to be safely returned to the environment. They typically consist of a septic tank and a drain field, where the wastewater is naturally filtered and treated before being absorbed into the ground. Unlike sewage systems, which are used in urban areas with centralized sewer systems, septic systems are specifically designed for rural areas.
