Question 7.
Read the paragraph and interpret.
We often hear people talk of population growth in alarming tones. These people are often literate and talk about others not benefitting because there are many people who have to share very few resources.
According to the given paragraph the population growth affects many ways. People should aware of this and the literate people talk about the benefits share of resources is not balancing. Very few people are using more resources whereas many people are using less resources. Countries like USA are using more natural resources though its population is less than 5% of the world population. In India, it is less than 16% of the world population is using less natural resources.

In India population in steadily increasing. If population increases in this way, one day India would be the first in world population. Population is not a curse to the country development, it is a boon for the development of country. People in any country can be divided into three categories. They are skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled.

The Government has to utilise the services of the skilled for the nation’s development. The semi-skilled should be made skilled. the unskilled should be provided with some training and so they would be doing some sort of productive work which would be strengthening GP. Equal distribution of resources should be the target of the government. The underdeveloped countries should focus on improving qualities of the workforce. So population is not a problem. It is a boon.

  6. Between 2 to 5 lakh people both Muslim and Hindu were killed.
  7. They became refugees, lived in relief camps, moved out on trains to find new homes.

Question 9.
Prepare a pamphlet on the prohibition of Liquor.
Prohibition of liquor
Liquor consumption is actually the most bad for human body. Nowadays we see many of the people having addiction towards such unusual things. But we have to stop doing it. I don’t say, that it has only bad effects but should be consumed in a limit. It affects so badly on our lives and also causes to different cancers. This consumption is like killing ourselves without hands.

The directive principles to state policy in the Constitution of India state that the state shall endeavour to bring about prohibition of the consumption except for medicinal purposes of intoxicating drinks and drugs which are injurious to health. But I wish all our country means to stop doing it. Please stop liquor consumption, If prohibition implemented it led to lower rates of drinking among men, as well as a decreased incidence of violence against women.

Total cropped Area – in million hectares.

Region 1955-56 2006-2007 growth %

How did the main features of the Gentlemen’s Agreement become a point of distrust between two regions of Telangana and Andhra?

Organised Sector Centre Unorganised Sector Centre

5) It also ensures pensions. 5) When there is less work, some people are asked to leave.
6) It has workers of government, companies and large establishment. 6) A lot also depends on the whims of the employer or changes in the market situation.

Introduction: On the initiative of the Union Government, the leaders of both sides signed on an agreement on 20th February 1958 which was known as Gentleman’s Agreement.

Main points: Main points in the agreement were

  1. Expenditure on Administration was to be borne proportionately by the two regions and surplus revenue from Telangana region would be spent only for the development of Telangana.
  2. The existing educational facilities in Telangana would be reserved for the students of Telangana only.
  3. It was agreed to continue the Mitiki ria les.
  4. It was agreed to set up a Regional Council to oversee the needs and development of Telangana.
  5. Sale of agricultural land in Telangana would be controlled by the Regional Cocuncil.
  6. The Andhra Pradesh ministry will consist of 40% members from Telangana and 60% members frorn Andhra.
  7. The Chief Minister was from A.R, the Deputy Chief Minister would be from Telangana and vice versa. “But the governments never implemented the Gentlemen’s Agreement. Hence people started agitation in 1969 in Telangana and a counter-movement started in A.P. in 1972, i.e. ‘Jai Andhra Movement.’.

There were three main causes for this:

  1. Discontent diversion of surplus revenue from Telangana to other regions of the state.
  2. Discrimination in employment in government sector.
  3. And granting of domicile status to Coastal Andhra persons working in Telangana region in violation of the Mulki rule.

Question 15.
Read the given paragraph and interpret.
The coastal environment of Nigeria has been disturbed because of reckless oil extraction by foreign oil companies. Oil spillage from oil wells has a major impact on the ecosystem.
The Taliban’s, which took over Afghanistan after the withdrawal of Soviet troops, similarly established an extremist Islamic state. These states tried to force all the people to strictly follow the rules laid down in religious texts.
The given paragraph emphasises that the coastal environment of Nigeria has been disturbed because the oil companies extracted more than their share. It is talking about the consequences of over-spillage of oil.

Overspillage of oil has various negative consequences:
Oil spillage from oil wells has a major impact on the ecosystem. Large areas of the mangrove forests, which are especially susceptible to oil, have been destroyed. This is mainly because oil is stored in the soil and re-released annually. Around 5-10% of Nigerian mangrove ecosystems have been destroyed either by clearing or oil. Spills destroy crops arid aqua culture through contamination of the groundwater and soil. Drinking water is also frequently contaminated, and sheen of’ oil is visible in many local bodies of water. Even if there is no immediate health efffect of this water contamination, it can cause cancer in the long term. Offshore spills, which are usually much bigger in scale, contaminate the coastal environments and cause a decline in the local fish production.

If the same is continued the whole world be affected. Oil is a natural resource. so natural resources are to be saved.

  1. The given paragraph says that an extremist Islamic state was formed in Afghanistan.
  2. This forced all the people to strictly follow the rules mentioned in religious texts.
  3. The women were not treated as equals, their basic freedom was denied.

  5. Once they fired a girl named Malala for voice for education.
  6. She was rescued and later on given Nobel Prize.
  7. The Talibans insisted everyone to follow the rules laid down in religious texts. My opinion is that one should follow the religious rules with understanding them and they should follow heartfully. Religion is personal – No one can force anyone to follow some rules or not ot follow the same.
  8. The Talibans do not allow women to have basic freedom. And they do not have equal rights.
  9. In modern society all the men and women are equal in getting opportunities.


  1. There should be no denial of basic freedom and equality of opportunity to women and religious minorities.
  2. International Human Rights commission should intervene and solve the problems of Taliban women.
