Ans 4: It all depends on situations:

• By erasing the drawing we can undo the change. For example, if we draw with the help of a pencil, we can erase the drawing by using an eraser. Then, it is a reversible change.
• If we draw using a pen, we cannot erase the drawing. Then this change cannot be reversed, so it is irreversible change.

Ques 5: Give examples to explain the difference between changes that can or cannot be reversed.

Ans 5: Examples of Reversible Changes:

• Melting of Ice into water: By freezing the water we can obtain ice again.
• Folding a paper: By unfolding it, we can undo the change.
• Hot milk to cold milk: By boiling milk, we can make it warm.
• Dissolving sugar in water: By evaporating water, sugar crystals can be obtained.
Example of Irreversible Changes:
• Burning of a candle.
• Bursting of crackers.
• Cutting of trees.
