Ans: Materials which allow electric current to flow through them are called conductors.

Q.2 What are insulators ?
Ans: Materials which do not allow electric current to flow through them are called insulators

Q.3 Why is distilled water conductor or an insulator ?

Ans: Distilled water is an insulator because there are no salts dissolved in it.

Ans: The disposal of the used conducting solution is hazardous and can cause environmental
pollution. There are specific disposal guidelines for environmental protection .

Q.17. Why is chromium used for electroplating ?

Ans: Chromium is used for electroplating because it has a shiny appearance, does not corrode
and is scratch resistant.

Q.18. Why the iron cans are electroplated with tin?

Ans: Tin is less reactive than iron. Thus food, stored in iron cans, is prevented from being spoilt by the iron by electroplating it by tin.

Q.19. After the electroplating of a spoon with silver, it was found that the anode has become thin why ?

Ans:During electroplating, the silver metal from the anode is deposited on the cathode. Therefore, it becomes thin.

Q.20. During electrolysis of water, why does hydrogen collect on cathode and oxygen collect on anode ?

Ans: When electric current is passed in water hydrogen ions (H+) move towards cathode and get collected over it. Hydroxyl ions (OH–) move towards the anode and oxygen is collected on it.

Question: what is the difference between biodiversity and ecosysterm?

Answer:   Biodiversity refers to the variety in the number and type of organisms found in a given habitat.
Ecosystem is a group of organisms which not only interact with each other but also with their physical environment.

Question:  What are the difference between national park and wildlife sanctuary?


National Park
Wildlife sanctuary
it protect both plants and animals
it protect only animals
Tickets or permissions are required to enter into a national park.
Tickets or permissions are not required to visit a wildlife sanctuary
A national park has a definite boundary.
A wildlife sanctuary does not have a specific boundary
Example: Jim Corbett national park (Gujarat)
Example: Krishna wildlife sanctuary (Andhra Pradesh)

Question:  What is the difference between biosphere reserves sanctuaries national parks and zoos?

Answer:  Biosphere Reserves are large areas for conservation of biodiversity, which include both wildlife and plants. 

Wildlife Sanctuary is an area which is free from disturbances from human activities, and is devoted for the conservation and protection of only wildlife. 

National Parks are those reserved areas where no human activity is allowed at all and the purpose of a national park is to preserve the plants, animals, landscape, and the historic objects of that area. 

A zoo or zoological park is a facility in which animals are confined within enclosures, displayed to the public, and in which they may also be bred.

Question:  What is conservation? How is it different from preservation?

Answer:  Conservation means controlled and sustainable use of natural resources whether they are renewable or non renewable. On the other hand preservation refers to the, attempts made to maintain in their present condition and protect them from any harm or decay.

Question:  How does deforestation reduce rainfall on the one hand and lead to floods on the other?

Answer:  When we cut trees, the water that was going to the atmosphere through transpiration is no more making clouds. so, rainfall does not occur.
The roots of the trees are able to hold water. When we cut trees, the flow of water cannot be avoided. Therefore, in this way deforestation leads to floods.

Question:  What are the possible causes of extinction of animal species?

Answer:  Causes for the extinction of species are:-
1. Sudden change in the climatic conditions due to deforestation.
2. Acid rain.
3. Diseases/epidemic.
4. Changes in the sea levels and currents.
5. Exposure to Cosmic radiations.

Question:  On what basis rare animals classified on the basis of IUCN?

Answer:  IUCN (The International Union for Conservation of Nature) is a global environmental organisation that works to conserve natural environment.
Rare species (R) of animals are classified as rare on the basis of their present and past distribution, decline in the population with course of time, abundance and quality of their natural habitat and their potential to reproduce.  Rare species have small population and are scattered in the world. For example- Golden cat.
Question:  What is flora and fauna?

Answer: The term flora is used to denote plants of a particular region or period. Similarly, the species of animals are referred to as fauna. It includes trees in the forests and grasslands as well as trees grown by humans. It includes amphibians, reptiles, mammals, small insects and worms
