Summative Assessment (2013-14) Sample Paper

Class-IX SCIENCE
TIME : 3 Hrs Instructions: (i) (ii) (iii) The question paper comprises of two sections, A and B. You are to attempt both the sections. All questions are compulsory. There is no overall choice. However, internal choice has been provided in all the five questions of five marks category. Only one option in such questions is to be attempted. All questions of section A and all questions of section B are to be attempted separately. Questions 1 to 3 in section A are one mark questions. These are to be answered in one word or in one sentence. Questions 4 to 6 in section A are two marks questions. These are to be answered in about 30 words each. Questions 7 to 18 in section A are three marks questions. These are to be answered in about 50 words each. Questions 19 to 24 in section A are five marks questions. These are to be answered in about 70 words each. Questions 25 to 33 in section B are multiple choice questions ( 1 mark) based on practical skills and question 34 to 36 are short answer questions ( 2 mark ) based on practical skills. Section-A The velocity time graph of an object is as shown. What can be said about the motion of the object?

What is irrigation? Describe any two ways of irrigation. What are Rabi crops? List two methods adopted in farming for the health of cattles. What happens to the dry raisins, when we put them in plain water for some time? (ii) What would happen if soaked raisins are then placed in concentrated salt solution for sometime? Explain the reason for both the observations. State the main function of: (a) Mitochondria (b) Nucleus (c) Lysosomes Draw a well labelled diagram of striated muscle found in human body. Write two differences between striated and smooth muscles. Give three points of difference between speed and velocity. Derive velocity-displacement relation by graphical method. What is principle of conservation of momentum? Derive it using Newtons third law. What do you mean by weight of a body? Compare the weight of a body on earth and on moon. Give three points of difference between mass and weight of the object. A car is moving with a velocity of 90Km/h. How much retardation is required to stop it in a distance of 20m? (b) How can you find speed from distance time graph. Draw distance time graph for uniform motion. (a) State Newtons first law of motion. Give one example. (b) A bullet of mass 20g is horizontally fired with a velocity of 150m/s from a gun of mass 4kg. Find the recoil velocity of the gun. OR (a) Why uniform circular motion is called an accelerated motion? (b) Give examples of following situations: (a) Why do we fall in forward direction in a moving bus if the brakes are applied suddenly? (b) What is an unbalanced force? Give two examples. OR (a) Why is it difficult for a fireman to hold a hose which ejects large amount of water at a high velocity? (b) State Newtons second law of motion. Explain the mathematical formulation of this law. Give three reasons to support that air is a mixture and not a compound . You are given a mixture of kerosene oil and water. How will you separate the two components? Explain with the help of well labeled diagram. What are complex tissues? Name the two types of complex permanent tissues present in plants? Give one function of each complex tissue. a) What is composite farming? b) Give two advantages of composite farming. c) Name two fishes which are surface feeders.
