Section A 
1. The main objective of mixed cropping is to reduce the risk of crop failure due to adverse 
weather. 
 
2. Processes which play an important role in the oxygen cycle: 
(a) Photosynthesis 
(b) Respiration 
 
Section B 
 
3. The ozone layer absorbs harmful ultraviolet radiations emitted by the Sun and prevents 
them from reaching the surface of the Earth, as these radiations cause harmful effects to 
human beings, plants and animals.

6. Limitations of Thomson's atomic model: 
? Although Thomson's atomic model explained why an atom is electrically neutral, it 
could not explain the distribution of electrons in the atom. 
? If we accept that electrons are embedded in the positive charge, then the opposite 
electric charges should cancel each other out and the charged sphere would become 
chargeless. 
? Thomson's model could not explain why different elements have different chemical 
properties. 
7. Advantages of irrigation: 
(a) Fresh water supplies hydrogen and oxygen to plants. 
(b) It provides enough moisture to the soil for the germination of seeds. 
(c) Irrigated soil is soft and new roots can penetrate and grow very well. 
(d) It causes an increase in the number of tillers in crop plants, as they cannot grow in 
dry soil. 
(e) It helps in the absorption of minerals and salts by roots which are necessary for the 
growth and development of plants. 
 
8.  
(a) Naphthalene easily undergoes sublimation, i.e. change of state of naphthalene from 
solid to gas without the intervening liquid state. Thus, naphthalene balls form 
naphthalene vapour which disappears into the air with time without leaving any 
solid residue. 
(b) Gaseous particles possess high speed and move very rapidly in all directions.  
When perfume is sprayed, its particles diffuse into the particles of air at a very fast 
rate and reach our nostrils. This enables us to smell the perfume from a distance. 
(c) After a hot sunny day, people sprinkle water on the roof or open ground because the 
large latent heat of vaporisation of water helps to cool the hot surface. 
9. The body experiences uniform velocity if it travels in a specified direction in a straight 
line and moves over equal distances in equal intervals of time. 
Two ways to change the velocity of a body: 
i) Change the speed of the body 
ii) Keep the speed constant and change the direction

10. Balanced force is a force where the resultant of all the forces acting on a body is zero. 
Unbalanced force is a force where the resultant of all the forces acting on a body is not 
zero. 
A child applies a force of 20 N and the force applied by the object on the ground is 20 N; 
thus, the net force applied on the body will be zero. 
As the total net force on the object is zero. The force applied on it was a balanced force.  
 
11. Pressure is the ratio of force (F) exerted by a body to the area (A) upon which the body 
is exerting the force. Also, weight (W) is the force exerted by a body due to the Earth’s 
gravitational pull, i.e. F = W.

Different cells of our body assume different sizes and shapes to perform certain 
specific functions. Our complex body carries out a wide range of functions. If all the 
cells of our body were of the same size, shape and volume, then they would all 
perform the same function and the other important functions would not be carried 
out, making human life impossible.

(a) During the day, the air above the land gets heated up faster and starts rising.  
(b) As this air rises, a region of low pressure is created and the air above the sea moves 
into this area of low pressure. The direction of the wind would be from the sea to 
the land. 
(c) During the night, both land and sea begin to cool. Since water cools down slower 
than the land, the air above the sea would be warmer than the air above the land. As 
a result, the wind current is from the land to the sea.
