Answer 12 – The ashvamedha ceremony or the horse sacrifice was one of the most 
important royal rituals of the Vedic period. It was often performed by powerful kings. The 
king wishing to perform this ceremony set a horse free to roam through the kingdoms of 
other rulers, guarded by his men. If a king allowed this sacred horse to pass through his 
territory, then it indicated that he had accepted the superiority of the first king. However, if 
the king stopped the horse, then it meant that he was challenging the authority of the first 
king. A battle followed thereafter.  
 
Answer 13 - The word ‘megalith ’ means ‘big stone ’. Megaliths were stone boulders which 
were carefully arranged by people to mark burial sites. The features of megaliths are as

i) Burials were performed and megaliths were placed on the surface to mark the 
burial spot and to serve as signposts. 
ii) The megalith graves were of different shapes and sizes. 
iii) They were generally built from heavy and large stone boulders. 
iv) Many objects were found in the graves, including human skeletons, pottery, 
agricultural tools, weapons and ornaments.  
v) These graves also contained a large number of pots, which were filled with ash and 
charred bones at some places. 
vi) The graves which contained a large number of pots and ornaments probably 
belonged to those who were either rich or important in society.

Answer 11 - Let us take the example of Kerala and Ladakh. Although Kerala and Ladakh 
are totally different in geographical features, the histories of both the regions have similar 
cultural influences. Both the regions have been influenced by Chinese and Arab traders. 
However, the history of being influenced by the traders was because of the geographical 
location of the regions. The geography of Kerala allowed for the cultivation of spices and of 
Ladakh helped in the production of wool. These specialties drew the traders to these 
regions. Thus, this proves that history and geography are often tied up in the cultural life of 
a region.

Answer 10 – Mangrove forests are found mainly in Sunderbans in West Bengal and in the 
Andaman and Nicobar islands. 
 
Answer 11 - Thorny vegetation is found in deserts. The leaves are reduced to spines in 
order to prevent the loss of water. Some have small leaves to reduce water loss from leaf 
surfaces and deep roots to draw water from the sub-soil. Examples of thorny vegetation are 
cactus.
