    Option 3 is the right answer.

    Egypt is called the gift of the Nile because the valley of Nile is extremely fertile mainly due to the yearly floods and it was this fertility that made its ancient people prosperous and helped them survive calamities. Had it not been for the Nile, Egypt would have bee a barren land many years ago.

    The ancient religion of the Egyptians was based on the Nile, and the lives of the ancient Egyptians centered on the river. It is on the banks of this river that one of the oldest civilizations of the world flourished. This ancient Nile valley civilization goes back to more than 5000 B.C. the headwater lakes-Victoria, Albert and Edward- are in the tropical country, south of the equator.
