the sea is salty because the minerals from rocks wash off into the water.

I do not understand why my answer was left alone and others that were almost exactly the same we're deleted. Shame on the mods. I saw Blades answer before it was removed and it was almost the same. Not offensive to anyone unless they are a blatant advocate of pollution.

Because that's how water is supposed to be but heat filters freshwater out of the salt and pours into rivers. (I might be wrong.)
