Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparison where relevant.
The diagrams compare two traditional techniques to accumulate water for irrigation. Even though the second way is more complex, but it can be seen that both of them use simple tools.
The first method is swing basket. The humans are involved to lift a hamper which is made of bamboo or leather and has been tied to two ropes. First, people take the water in the river which has a depth of less than two meters. Then, by swinging the basket, those splash the water into the irrigation channel.
While the first manner needs mankind involvement, the animals such as buffalo or cow do their duty in rope and bucket technique. Also, the devices used in this method completely different. There are a bucket, pulley and roller which have been tied to ropes and connected with the cow. To start with, the pail thrown into the well as deep as fifty meters, then the cow pulls a bucket which has been filled with water. It becomes easier since there is slope making the cow can lift simplify the pail. Finally, the water is collected in the irrigation channel.
