Best answer
Water is a major factor affecting settlements because water is required for survival of living beings, for purposes like drinking, cooking, agriculture, industries, etc.
Due to availability of water, agriculture and industries flourish, generating employment opportunities and leading to development of settlements.
Shortage of water will hamper the growth of agriculture and industries which lead to less development of settlements.
