SONAR stands for Sound Navigation And Ranging. 
It is a device used to measure the distance, the direction and the speed of the objects 
lying under water using ultrasonic waves. 
It comprises a transmitter and a receiver. Powerful pulses of ultrasound waves are sent 
out at regular intervals from a transmitter mounted on a ship. When these pulses are 
intercepted by submerged objects, they are reflected. The reflected sound or echo is 
detected by an underwater receiver, which is also mounted on the ship. 
If t = time interval between transmission and reception of reflected ultrasound waves, 
v = speed of sound through water, 
d = distance of the object that reflected the ultrasound, then 
Distance = speed × time 
In time interval ‘t’, the sound waves travel twice, i.e. 2d 
2d = vt 
? d = v t /2 
This gives the distance of the object lying under water.

(a) The following factors need to be considered for fish culture: 
? Topography or location of the pond 
? Water resources and quality 
? Soil quality  
? Water temperature 
(b) In composite fish culture, five or six different species of fish are grown together in a 
single fishpond. Fish with different food habitats are chosen so that they do not 
compete for food among themselves. For example, catla feed on the surface of water, 
rohu are middle zone feeders, mrigal and common carp are bottom feeders, and 
grass carp feed on weeds. This ensures complete utilisation of food resources in the 
pond. Such a system increases the fish yield. 
 
11. Snakes and turtles possess the following common features: 
(a) Skin without glands 
(b) Three-chambered heart 
(c) Respiration through lungs 
(d) Cold-blooded 
(e) Hard-shelled eggs 
(f) Embryo protected by extra embryonic membranes 
Since snakes and turtles share the above common features, they are both grouped 
under the same Class Reptilia of Phylum Chordata.

(a) Features of the nuclear model of an atom by Rutherford: 
? There is a positively charged centre in an atom called the nucleus. Nearly all 
the mass of an atom resides in the nucleus. 
? The electrons revolve around the nucleus in well-defined orbits. 
? The size of the nucleus is very small as compared to the size of the atom. 
 
(b) The maximum capacity of a shell to accommodate electrons is given by the general 
formula 2n
2
, where n is the number of a shell. 
The maximum number of electrons possible in the outermost shell is 8 and that in 
the penultimate shell is 18. 
It is not necessary for an orbit to be completed before another is formed. In fact, a 
new orbit is formed when the outermost shell attains 8 electrons.

element or molecule moves through both biotic (biosphere) and abiotic 
(lithosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere) components of the Earth.  
 Examples of biogeochemical cycles are water cycle, nitrogen cycle, carbon cycle, 
sulphur cycle and phosphorous cycle. (Any two)

(i) Atoms are indivisible particles. (i) Atoms are divisible into sub-atomic 
particles like protons, neutrons and 
electrons. 
(ii) Atoms can neither be created nor 
destroyed. 
(ii) Atoms can be created and destroyed by 
nuclear fusion and fission. 
(iii) The atoms of an element are alike in all 
respect and differ from atoms of other 
elements. 
(iii) The atoms of an element may not be 
alike in all respects, as it is seen in the case 
of isotopes. Isotopes which are atoms of the 
same element having the same atomic 
number but different mass numbers.
