Ans. In this method, some birds, insects etc are deliberately put in the affected field. They destoy the 
pests in the field.

Q20. What are weeds and why are they unwanted?

Ans. The plants which grow along with the cultivated crop are called weeds. They are  Unwanted as 
they compete with the main crop for nutrient, space, sunlight etc.

Q21. What are layers?

Ans. Hens raised for egg production are called layers. They start laying eggs at the age of 20 weeks.

Q22. What is mariculture?

Ans. Culture of marine fin fish,shell fish and sea weeds is called mariculture.  Mariculture is growing rapidly as the demand for fish is increasing while the  Stock is declining due to excessive exploitation from sea.

Q23. Why are Italian bee varieties preferred?

Ans: They are preferred as:       a)They are gentle in nature. 

b) They have good honey collection capacity.  c) They have less swarming activity.

Q24. What are concentrates?

Ans. The concentrates are rich in nutrients with very little fibrous or cellulose matter. They are rich in carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and vitamins. Eg oil cakes, grains etc.

Q25. What is culture fishery?

Class 10 Chapter 02 Acid Bases and Salts NCERT Activity Explanation

NCERT Activity Chapter 02 Acid Bases and Salt Class 10 Chemistry Activity 2.1 Indicator Acid Base Red litmus No Change Blue Blue Litmus Red No change Phenolphthalein Colourless Pink Methyl Orange Pink   Yellow Indictors are substance which change colour in acidic or basic media. Activity 2.2 There are some substances whose odour changes in in acidic or basic media. These are called olfactory indicators. Like onion vanilla, onion and clove. These changes smell in basic solution. Activity 2.3 Take about 5 mL of dilute sulphuric acid in a test tube and add few pieces of zinc granules to it. => You will observe bubbles of hydrogen gas on the surface of zinc granules. Zn + H2SO4 --> ZnSO4 + H2 => Pass the Hydrogen gas through the soap solution. Bubbles formed in the soap solution as Hydrogen gas it does not get dissolved in it

CBSE I NCERT 10th Numerical Problem solved Reflection and reflection of light

Q. 1. A concave mirror of focal length 20cm is placed 50 cm from a wall. How far from the wall an object be placed to form its real image on the wall?  Solution: V= -50 cm F= -20cm From mirror formula 1/u = 1/f – 1/v = -1/20+ 1/50 = - 3/100  U = - 33.3 cm Therefore, the distance of the object from the wall x =  50 – u X = 50 – 33.3 = 16.7 cm. Q.2. An object is placed at a distance of 40cm from a concave mirror of focal length 15cm. If the object is displaced through a distance of 20 cm towards the mirror, By how much distance is the image displaced? Answer: Here f = - 15 cm, u = - 40 cm Now 1/f = 1/u + 1/v Then 1/v = 1/f – 1/u Or V= uf/u-f =( - 40 x -15)/25 = -24 cm Then object is displaced towards the mirror let u1 be the distance object from the Mirror in its new position. Then u1 = -(40-20) = -20cm If the image is formed at a distance u1 from the mirror then v1 = u1f/u1-f = -20X-15/-20+15 = -60 cm. = - 20 x-15/-20+15 = -60 cm. Therefor

Class 10 Metal and Non MetalsChapter 03 NCERT Activity Solutions

X Class 10 NCERT Activity Explanation Class 10 Metals and Non Metals Activity 3.1 Page No. 37 Take samples of iron, copper, aluminium and magnesium. Note the appearance of each sample. They have a shining surface. Clean the surface of each sample by rubbing them with sand paper and note their appearance again. They become more shiny. => Freshly cut Metal have shiny surface Activity 3.2 Page No. 37 Take small pieces of iron, copper, aluminium, and magnesium. Try to cut these metals with a sharp knife and note your observations. They are very hard to cut. Hold a piece of sodium metal with a pair of tongs and try to cut it with a knife. Sodium can be cut easily with knife. Hence K and Na are soft metal cut with knife Activity 3.3 Page No. 38 Take pieces of iron, zinc, lead and copper try to strike it four or five times with a hammer. These metals are beaten into thin sheet on hammering. This property of metal is called malleability and metals are called malleable. Activity 3.4 Page
