Answer 11 - The four reasons why hunter-gatherers move from place to place are as 
follows: 
i) Staying at one place finishes all available food –plant or animal resources. 
ii) Animals moved from place to place, and hence, this made the hunter-gatherers 
move along with them for hunting. 
iii) Plants and trees bore fruit in different seasons. Thus, people had to move season to 
season to find different kinds of plants. 
iv) Plants and animals needed water to survive. Although most of the water bodies 
(lakes, ponds and streams) were perennial, some were seasonal. Thus, people living 
on the banks had to go in search of water during the dry seasons. 
 
Answer 12 - Dasas/Dasyus were a group of people who were different from Aryans 
(people who composed hymns). They also spoke a different language. Most of the dasas 
were enslaved and so the term ‘dasa ’ (and the feminine dasi) came to mean slave. These 
were women and men who were often captured in war and were treated as the property of 
their owners. They had to do whatever work was given to them by their masters.

Answer 6 – Diversity is understanding that each individual is unique and includes 
recognising our individual differences. The differences can be in race, ethnicity, gender, 
sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political 
beliefs or other ideologies. 
 
Answer 7 – The song was composed and sung after the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. It was 
sung in the memory of brave Indian people who lost their lives protesting against the 
British. 
 
Answer 8 – Prejudice means judging other people negatively or considering them to be 
inferior. For example, when we think that only one particular way is the best and right way 
to do things, we often end up not respecting others who prefer to do the same things 
differently.

Answer 9 – The government works at the following three levels: 
Local level – This level includes village, town or locality. 
State level – This level covers the entire state, e.g. Haryana or Maharashtra. 
National level – This level is related to the whole country. 
 
Answer 10 – Gram Sabha consists of the Panchayat president called the Sarpanch and the 
Panchs who are the members of the Panchayat. 
 
Answer 11 - Gram Panchayat is formed in the following manner: 
i) Every village Panchayat is divided into wards, i.e. smaller areas. 
ii) Each ward elects a representative who is known as the Ward Member (Panch). 
iii) All the members of the Gram Sabha also elect a Sarpanch who is the Panchayat 
President. 
iv) The Ward Panchs and Sarpanch form the Gram Panchayat. 
 
Answer 12 – The government recognises and makes special provisions for groups within 
society that face inequality. For instance, in our society, there is a general tendency to value 
and care for the boy child more than the girl child. 
This means that society does not value the girl and boy child equally, and this is unjust. 
Hence, the government steps in to promote justice by providing special provisions that can 
enable girls to overcome the injustice that they are subjected to. Thus, it is possible that 
fees for girls might be waived or lowered in government schools and colleges.

Answer 7 - If the Earth did not rotate, the portion of the Earth facing the Sun would always 
experience day and would be hot continuously. The other half would remain in darkness 
and be freezing cold. Life would not be possible in such extreme conditions. 
 
Answer 8 – A globe is a true model (miniature form) of the Earth. It may be small or big in 
size. It shows countries, continents and oceans in their correct size. In addition, it is not 
fixed but can be rotated. 
 
Answer 9 – The average weather condition of a place measured over many years is called 
the climate. India has a monsoon type of climate. 
 
Answer 10 – Birds that move from one country to another country in winters are called 
migratory birds. Examples include Siberian Crane, Stork, Pintail Duck and Curlew. 
 
Answer 11 - On the 21
st
 of June, the Northern Hemisphre is tilted towards the Sun, while 
the Southern Hemisphere is turned away from the Sun. The rays of the Sun fall vertically 
over the Tropic of Cancer and a large portion of the Northern Hemisphere receives the heat 
and light of the Sun. Days are longer than the nights in the Northern Hemisphere and they 
experience the summer season. The longest day and the shortest night occur on 21
st
 June in 
the Northern Hemisphere. At this time, all the conditions are reversed in the Southern 
Hemisphere and they experience winter. This position of the Earth is called the Summer 
Solstice. 
 
Answer 12 - As the Earth is spherical in shape, the Equator receives direct sunrays and the 
North Pole and the South Pole receive slanting sunrays. Places located in the Torrid Zone 
experience vertical rays of the Sun atleast twice a year, and this region receives maximum 
heat. Places in the temperate zone receive slanting rays of the Sun and less heat, while the 
Frigid Zone is very cold receiving the extremely slanting rays of the Sun. Hence, the amount 
of heat received in the areas of North Pole or South Pole is lesser than areas located in the 
Equator.
