Advertising is a very important part of selling a product. It  
? Aims to get people to buy a particular brand of product. 
? Tries to influence prospective consumers in a manner such that they would want to 
buy the product of a particular brand. 
 
Answer 8 
In clinics and nursing homes, we see medical representatives waiting for doctors. Such 
persons are waiting to sell their medical products to the doctor. This shows that they are 
also engaged in the selling of goods. Thus, buying and selling take place in a different way, 
not necessarily through shops in the market. 
 
Answer 9 
This term is used by people to elect or replace their representatives as all adults in India 
have an equal right to vote during the elections. Also, the Indian Constitution recognises all 
Indians as equal before the law and states that no person can be discriminated against 
because of their religion, sex, caste or whether they are rich or poor. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Answer 10 
The issues affecting marginalised and poor communities are 
? Privatisation of health services 
? Low value given to women and their work 
? Low earning made by farmers who grow cotton 
? Increasing control of business houses on the media 
Hence, these issues are becoming a concern for economic and social equality in the country. 
 
Answer 11 
Article 15 of the Indian Constitution states that: 
? The state shall not discriminate among people on the basis of religion, race, gender 
or place of birth. 
? No citizen on the grounds of religion, caste, gender, or race can be barred from 
using-
