Question 1. The distance between station A and B is 120 km. A train travelling at a speed can cover the distance in 2 hours 30 minutes. By how many km/h should the speed of the train be increased for it to take 30 minutes less to cover the distance. ?
Solution 1.
Case 1:
Data given:
Distance between station A and B = 120 km
Time taken by the train = 2 h 30 minutes
=(2+30/60) h
=5/2 h
Speed S1 of the train in km/h = D/S
=48 km/h
Case 2:
Distance between station A and B = 120 km
Time taken by the train = 2 h
Speed S2 of the train = 120/2
=60 km/h Increased speed (S2-S1) = (60-48) km/h
=12 km/h Ans.Question 2. Two trains start from the same staion in the smae direction. The speed of the first train is 70 km/h and that of the second train is 20 m/s. 1) Which train is moving faster ?
2) What is the distance between the trains after 1 hour and 15 minutes ?

Answer 2. Speed of the first train = 70 km/h
Speed of the second train = 20 m/s
i)Speed of the second train in km/h= 20x(…

It’s a somber reality that when we’re toddlers, we wish to grow old and when we’re adults, we wish to go back to our childhood days. Of course, I regret the passing of my childhood days. I really miss those innocuous fights, splendid games, crazy fears and the concern of my parents that acted as a shield to protect me against everything. Those were the days when I didn’t have to worry about anything. Also, whatever I wished was fulfilled by my parents. This self-centered world was far away from my reach. I was free to do everything and anything and I knew that if I fall, my dad was there to hold me up. But today, I have no one by my side. Being a toddler, fights meant not talking for a day and when the demands were not fulfilled, simply shedding off tears did everything. Today, there is no one to lend a shoulder to sob and fights mean “Good Bye for-ever”. I yearn to go back to those blessed days and stay there for an unchanged forever. Childhood is that period of a man’s life w…

Question 1. What does the poet remember about the house where he was born?
Answer 1. Childhood memories always remain intact within us irrespective of the time elapsed. The poet remembers every ounce of jovialness and happiness that he experienced in his childhood.
The poet recalls how the sun shined in the morning and its rays propagated through the house’s window to wake him up. He personifies sun as a human who is always on time, neither arrives soon nor does it delays.
The poet also describes the vivid variant flowers and the presence of Laburnum tree which his brother planted on one of his birthdays. Question 2. Name the flowers that are mentioned in the poem.
Answer 2. In the poem ‘I Remember, I Remember’, the poet has mentioned various species of flowers including red and white roses, violet lilies and lilacs. The description of these flowers symbolizes the presence of a heavenly aura that enveloped poet’s childhood. Question 3. What does the poet say about swallows?

Question 1. Describe in your own words-
a)Summer in the hills.
b)Summer in the plains.
Answer 1.a)Summer in the hills: Summer in hills are welcomed with happiness. It is because the people face the severe cold for longer period of the year. Therefore Summer brings happiness for the hilly area. The little birds sit on the door and expresses their happiness.

b)Summer in the plane: Summer in plain is very much painful. It makes people dry. People search shade to escape the blazing sun. Summer in plain area is not welcomed by the people. It creates the scarcity of water in plain area. Therefore I can say that Summer season in plain area is opposite to that of hilly area. Question 2. What are the characteristics of spring ?
Answer 2. In most of the countries Spring is a pleasant time. After coldness of winter the mellow warmth of Spring brings very good feeling for everyone. Trees grow new leaves. Flower blooms and birds build their nests. The countryside looks green with life. Q…

Question 1. What does the poet mean by the line ‘Journey across to France on it’? Consult the atlas if required.
Answer 1.France is a European country that extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. The poet stated that one can journey across to France over waters because the boundaries of the country are connected to each other via various rivers including the Seine River, the Loire River, the Gironde River and many more. Question 2. Why does the poet say that we must ‘watch carefully’?
Answer 2.Water takes many forms, and each form is elegant in its own way. We’re having the privilege to admire them all but, our future generation may be deprived of the same. Water is on its verge of extinction because of our inhuman activities. Hence, the poet suggests watching the waters carefully because you may not know that it may be the last opportunity to have a glance over such a beautiful scene and later, you’d ha…
