Q.1. How the bats make use of ultrasonic waves to catch their prey? Explain?
Ans. The bat produces high pitched ultrasonic waves. The waves on striking the insect return back, which is heard by the bat. On hearing the echo the bat locates the insect and catches it.
Q.2.How does the stethoscope help the doctors in listening to the sound of the patients heart beat?
Ans. In a stethoscope, the sound produced within the body of a patient is picked up by a sensitive diaphragm and then reaches the doctor's ear by multiple reflections.
Q.3. Explain how defects in a metal block can be detected using ultrasound.
Ans. To detect minor cracks or flaws in metal block, ultrasonic waves are allowed to pass through metal blocks and detectors are used to detect the transmitted waves. If there is a crack in metal block, these waves get reflected back
Q.4. How is ultrasound used for cleaning?
Ans. The object to be cleaned is put in a tank fitted with ultrasonic vibrator. The tank is filled with cleaning solution. As the ultrasonic vibrator is switched on, high frequency vibrations are set up and the dust, grease and dust particles get detached and the object gets thoroughly cleaned.
Q.5. What is echo ranging? State any one application of this technique.

2 Marks Questions
1. Atomic number is 13. (i) Group – 13 (ii) 3rd Period
2. (i) All isotopes have same atomic number. So they have same place for a particular element.
(ii) Hydrogen is not given a definite position. It was placed in group I A and group VII B in the Modern Periodic Table.
3. As we go down the 16th group of periodic table, tendency to gain electrons decreases because the electronegative character (non metallic character) of elements gradually decreases.
4. As we move down in a group, an electron shell is added after every change of period. Sodium has one more shell than lithium.
Li (3) = 2, 1 Na (11) = 2, 8, 1
Due to less number of shells, lithium atom is smaller than sodium atom.
(b) The nucleus of chlorine has more tendency to attract an extra electron than the nucleus of sulphur because chlorine needs only one 1 electron to complete its shell. Hence, chlorine is more electronegative than sulphur.

2. (a) A, B and C occupy 2nd period of periodic table and 15, 16 and 17 groups respectively.
(b) A > B > C because atomic size decreases as we move from left to right across a period.
(c) C has electronic configuration 2, 7. It needs only one electron to complete its outermost shell. So it is more reactive.
3. (a) (i) Li (3), Be (4), B (5), C (6), N (7), O (8), F (9). (ii) Li is largest and F is smallest atom.
(b) As one moves from left to right across a period, there is a consecutive addition of a proton in the nucleus that increases the positive charge, which consequently pulls the extra nuclear electrons in the outermost shell inward. Thus, atomic size decreases with the increase in the number of protons as one moves from left to right in a period.
4. (a) The valency of an element with respect to hydrogen increases from 1 to 4 and then falls to 1 as in 2nd period elements.
The valency of elements with respect to oxygen increases from 1 to 7 for 3rd period elements. (b) (i) 2nd group (ii) 3rd period
(c) In a group all elements have same number of electrons in their outermost shell. So they have same valency.

Q1: What changes can you make in your habits to become more environment-friendly?
Ans: The following changes can be made in our habits to become more environment-friendly:
1. By using the principle of 3R's i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
2. Always separate the biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste;
3. Plastic, paper, or glass must be recycled or reused and not dumped with other wastes
4. Switch off the electrical appliances when not in use; Avoid wastage of energy, Water and food ;
5. Should dispose the wastes safely and not disperse in public places
6. Careful use of fuels like gas & petrol;
7. Use of alternate sources of energy;
8. By using local transport like buses or train.
9. Use of natural fertilizers like manures
2. What would be the advantages of exploiting resources with short-term aims?
Ans: Advantages of exploiting resources with short-term aims:
(i) Availability of all resources at a time;
(ii) Faster development and growth of economy;
(iii) Rapid Industrialisation;
(iv) Agricultural developments;
But we should remember that these advantages are very limited as this would lead to the depletion of natural resources for present and future generation. This may also cause havoc with the ecology of the earth.
3. How would these advantages differ from the advantages of using a long term perspective in managing our resources?
Ans: If resources are used in accordance with short term aims, present generation will be able to only utilize the resources properly for growth and development. But if we use resources with long term aims, future generation will also be able to utilize resources for fulfilling its needs. The all around growth of the world will be in a balanced manner and uniform and it would preserve our ecology. Thus it would be better to use our natural resources with a long term perspective so that it could be used by the present generation as well as conserved for future use.
4. Why do you think there should be equitable distribution of resources? What forces would be working against an equitable distribution of our resources?
Ans: There should be equitable distribution of resources so that all people, all countries will be able to fulfil its needs and could grow properly using all resources equally. Each and every one gets his share of the resource and it would fulfil the fundamental right of equality. Forces working against equitable distribution of resources are:
Natural forces: 1. Land form 2. Climate 3.Distribution of rainfall. 4. Types of soil.
Man-made forces: 1. Human greed, 2. Corruption, 3. Restrictions by higher authorities, 4. Lobby of the rich and powerful people & companies and 5. Political interferences

Q1. Why should we conserve forests and wildlife?
Ans: We should conserve forest and wildlife because:
1. To preserve the biodiversity (range of different life-forms) so as to avoid the loss of ecological stability.
2. Forests play an important role in maintaining ecological balance;
3. It may affect these habitants like tribes or rural people as it is a source of their food, shelter, & livelihood;
4. Forest provide us oxygen, medicines, etc
5. It maintains climate, hydrological cycle, quality of soil, the water sources, and the amount of rainfall;
4. Forest prevents soil erosion.
5. Plants are dependent on animals and birds for their pollination and seed dispersal.
6. Provides various forest products are used in house and as raw materials in industries. So, we can say that without forests and wildlife, we cannot imagine our life on this earth.
Q2. Suggest some approaches towards the conservation of forests.
Ans: Following measures are taken to conserve forests:
1. Conversion of forests by making more national parks, sanctuaries, biosphere and reserve forests;
2.To take help of local people who resides in and around the forests in conserving forest through awareness programmes, awards, govt. Help;
3.Not to allow the destruction of forests for making un-necessary roads, dams and hotels etc.
4.Planting more trees, and Rate of afforestation must be more than that of deforestation.
5. Govt should enact strong laws to prevent illegal forest activities and to promote better management of the forest resources.

Q1. Find out about the traditional systems of water harvesting/management in your region.
Ans: India has a long history of traditional systems of water harvesting/management. Many water harvesting structures and systems specific to the different regions and culture has been developed. They harvested the rain drop directly. From rooftops, they collected water and stored it in tanks built in their courtyards. From open community lands, they collected the rain and stored it in artificial wells. They harvested monsoon runoff by capturing water from swollen streams during the monsoon season and stored it various forms of water bodies like tanks. They harvested water from flooded rivers.
2. Compare the above system with the probable systems in hilly/ mountainous areas or plains or plateau regions.
Ans: In plains, the water harvesting structures are mostly circular shaped earthen structures. The most of the plain or desert or plateau areas are having artificial water collection areas like Baowalis, Kunds, bands, Johads, talab, etc. These are low, straight, and created by digging lands or rocks. These are used to collect waters from rain, flood, etc. In hilly regions, Kulh, Naula,Kul, Zabo, Zings are the some of the system of water harvesting/management which are followed in J&K, Himachal, Uttarakhand, and North-east areas. Most of these methods are meant to collect waters from glaciers and rain by making channels and pits.
Q3. Find out the source of water in your region/locality. Is water from this source available to all people living in that area?
Ans: The source of water in our region is River water supplied from the Yamuna canal by the local authorities. This type of Water supply is available to the limited people and not to entire population living in Gurgaon area. The Many new, un-authorised, and slum colonies use ground water through bore wells, hand pumps, etc.
