(a) Valves in heart 
(b) Thick muscular walls of ventricles 
(c) Thin walls of atria 
(d) All of the above

Correct Answer is Option (a)
Valves ensure that blood does not flow backwards when the atria or ventricles contract. Semilunar valves, the valves present between ventricles and their attached vessels, serve to prevent the backflow of blood to ventricles from their respective attached vessels. Likewise, atrioventricular (AV) valve between atrium and ventricle directs the flow of blood and prevents any backflow into atria.

Q.26: In the double displacement reaction between aqueous potassium iodide and aqueous lead nitrate, a yellow precipitate of lead iodide is formed. While performing the activity if lead nitrate is not available, which of the following can be used in place of lead nitrate?
(a) Lead sulphate (insoluble) 
(b) Lead acetate 
(c) Ammonium nitrate 
(d) Potassium sulphate

Correct Answer is Option (b)
Lead acetate can be used in place of lead nitrate because like lead nitrate, it is also a soluble salt in water. The reaction is as follows :
Pb(CH3COO)2 + 2KI → 2PbI2 + 2CH3COO-K+
Lead sulphate is insoluble in water and will not dissociate into Pb2+ ions, so it cannot be used.


Q.27: A dilute ferrous sulphate solution was gradually added to the beaker containing acidified permanganate solution. The light purple colour of the solution fades and finally disappears. Which of the following is the correct explanation for the observation?
(a) KMnO4 is an oxidising agent, it oxidises FeSO4
(b) FeSO4 acts as an oxidising agent and oxidises KMnO4
(c) The colour disappears due to dilution; no reaction is involved. 
(d) KMnO4 is an unstable compound and decomposes in presence of FeSOto a colourless compound.

Correct Answer is Option (a)
A dilute ferrous sulphate solution was gradually added to the beaker containing acidified permanganate solution. A permanganate solution is usually purple in colour. The light purple colour of the solution fades and finally disappears. This is because potassium permanganate (KMnO4) is relatively an unstable compound, it tends to decompose in the presence of ferrous sulphate (FeSO4). This changes the colour of the solution from purple to colourless. FeSO4 gets oxidised to Fe2(SO4)  as KMnO4 acts as a good oxidising agent in an acidic medium.

Q.36: Reaction between X and Y, forms compound Z. X loses electron and Y gains electron. Which of the following properties is not shown by Z?
(a) Has high melting point 
(b) Has low melting point 
(c) Conducts electricity in molten state 
(d) Occurs as solid

Correct Answer is Option (b)
Ionic compounds are formed by the transfer of electrons. Ionic compounds conduct electricity in their molten state, occur as solid and have high melting and boiling points. Low melting point is not the character of ionic compounds. Compound Z is formed because of transfer of electrons from X to Y, this means Z is an ionic compound which could not have low melting point.

Class 10 Science: CBSE Sample Question Paper- Term I (2021-22) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10She then added four different metal strips to each test tube as shown below. She observed the following results:
A. In test tubes I and III, black residue was obtained.
B. In test tubes II and IV, no change was observed.

Why no change is observed in test tubes II and IV ?

(a) Metals Q and S should be less reactive than iron.
(b) Metals P and Q are more reactive than iron.
(c) Metals P and S are less reactive than iron
(d) Metals Q and S are more reactive than iron.

Correct Answer is Option (a)

No change is observed in test tubes II and IV hence, metals Q and S should be less reactive than iron.


Q.51: CASE-I
Observe the given experimental set-up carefully and answer any of the four questions.
I. In an experiment, Vaani took 10 mL of freshly prepared iron sulphate solution in four different test tubes.
Class 10 Science: CBSE Sample Question Paper- Term I (2021-22) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10She then added four different metal strips to each test tube as shown below. She observed the following results:
A. In test tubes I and III, black residue was obtained.
B. In test tubes II and IV, no change was observed.

Metals P, Q, R and S could be respectively

(a) Al, Cu, Pb, Ag
(b) Pb, Cu, Ag, Al
(c) Zn, Al, Cu, Ag
(d) Zn, Cu, Al, Ag

Correct Answer is Option (d)

Black residue is obtained in test tubes I and III i.e., iron gets displaced in test tubes I and III. Therefore, metals P and R should be more reactive than iron. No change is observed in test tubes II and IV hence, metals Q and S should be less reactive than iron. Hence, Metal P could be zinc (Zn), Q could be copper (Cu), R could be Aluminium (Al) and S could be Silver (Ag).


Q.52: CASE-I
Observe the given experimental set-up carefully and answer any of the four questions.
I. In an experiment, Vaani took 10 mL of freshly prepared iron sulphate solution in four different test tubes.
Class 10 Science: CBSE Sample Question Paper- Term I (2021-22) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10She then added four different metal strips to each test tube as shown below. She observed the following results:
A. In test tubes I and III, black residue was obtained.
B. In test tubes II and IV, no change was observed.

What type of reaction is seen in test tubes I and III?

(a) Combination reaction.
(b) Displacement reaction
(c) Redox reaction
(d) Neutralisation reaction

Correct Answer is Option (b)

The black residue is seen in test tube I and III due to the formation of iron. This type of reaction is called displacement reaction.

The secretion that is released by label C is:

(a) Bile
(b) Pepsin
(c) Saliva
(d) Gastric juice

Q.57: CASE-III :
A narrow beam of white light is passing through a glass prism as shown in the diagram. Study the diagram and answer the following questions.

Class 10 Science: CBSE Sample Question Paper- Term I (2021-22) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10
The phenomenon observed in above set-up is

(a) Scattering of light
(b) Dispersion of light
(c) Reflection of light
(d) Refraction of light

Correct Answer is Option (b)

The phenomenon of splitting of white light into its constituent colours after passing through a prism is called as dispersion of light. When the light enters the prism, all the colours have different speeds due to which its gets split into bands.


Q.58: CASE-III :
A narrow beam of white light is passing through a glass prism as shown in the diagram. Study the diagram and answer the following questions.

In nature, this phenomenon is observed in

(a) Formation of rainbow
(b) Twinkling of stars
(c) Blue colour of sky
(d) Advance sunrise

Correct Answer is Option (a)

Rainbow is caused by dispersion of sunlight by tiny water droplets present in the atmosphere which is one of the application of dispersion of light.


Q.59: CASE-III :
A narrow beam of white light is passing through a glass prism as shown in the diagram. Study the diagram and answer the following questions.

Which of the following statement is correct about constituents of white light based on above observations?

(a) White light consists of seven colours.
(b) Violet colour suffers minimum deviation.
(c) Red light suffers maximum deviation.
(d) All the colours of the white light move with different speed in vacuum.

Correct Answer is Option (a)

When the light disperses, various bands of light are clearly visible. It is clear from the figure that the violet light suffers maximum deviation and red light suffers minimum deviation. All the colours of the white light move with the same speed in air or vacuum but with different wavelengths and frequencies.


Q.60: CASE-III :
A narrow beam of white light is passing through a glass prism as shown in the diagram. Study the diagram and answer the following questions.

Class 10 Science: CBSE Sample Question Paper- Term I (2021-22) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10
The cause of dispersion of light is

(a) All the colors of light travel with the speed more than the speed of light.
(b) All the colors have different angles of deviation.
(c) All the colors do not travel with the same speed of light.
(d) All the colors have the same wavelength.

Correct Answer is Option (c)

The various colours of white light have different extent of refraction in a medium. All of colours of light do not travel with same speed in the medium which is the cause of dispersion of light.
