PREFACE
It gives me great pleasure in presenting the Question Bank for Open Text Based
Assessment (OTBA) for Class IX Mathematics for Summative Assessment (SA) - II. It is in
strictly according to the latest guidelines issued by CBSE (Circular No. Acad-45/2014, dated 21
November, 2014) for OTBA to be held with SA-II in March 2015.
The CBSE has short listed text material for class IX in the subject areas of English,
Hindi, Mathematics Science and Social Science. This short listed text is in the form of an article,
a case study, a picture or a cartoon or a problem/situation. The question paper in each main
subject will have a separate section of 10 marks for Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA). The
OTBA aims to strengthen students analytical and theoretical skills by moving away from the
trend of rote learning.
I avail this opportunity to convey my sincere thanks to respected sir, Shri S. Vijay
Kumar, Director, KVS ZIET Gwalior, respected madam Smt. R. Kalavathi, Deputy

THEME 1 : ATITHIDEVO BHAVAH


OPEN TEXT MATERIAL
ABSTRACT:
Atithidevo Bhavah is a verse in Sanskrit. It means to consider the guest as god. This
statement is drawn from an ancient scripture which has been the ethos of Indian
culture. Recently, this verse has found its place in the tagline of Ministry of Tourism in
order to improve the treatment of the foreign tourists visiting the country due to the
popularity the country has gained in the recent times as a popular and favorite tourist
destination.
The concept of Atithidevo bhav is deep rooted in our Indian culture and is carried
forward with same spirit as it used to in ancient times. The text gives an insight into the
number of foreign tourists arrivals in India during different seasons which is supported
with data. The concept also gets reinforced when the statistics show that tourists of all
age groups from across the globe love to visit India.
India is a beautiful country rich in diversity. The majestic Himalayas, the sparkling
ocean, the dry desert, the dancing river, the enticing lagoons or the magical back waters,
all appeal to nature lovers. People come from far off countries to a new beautiful vision
of glory of nature. Its rich history, cultural and geographical diversity makes it an
international tourism attraction. There are many places which attract the interest of the
tourists in India. Many foreign tourists from different parts of the world come to explore
the natural and the heritage beauty of this Nation. Tourists come for different purposes
such as weddings, shopping, tourism, business, education, adventure, family reunions,
etc.
SEASONALITY IN FOREIGN TOURIST ARRIVALS IN INDIA
India experiences three major seasons
- Winter, Summer and Monsoon. In
2011 over six lakh tourists had visited
various tourist destinations such as
Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Kashmir
valley,
Goa,
Mysore
and
Thiruvanantha-puram in the winter
season.
In 2012, the minimum number of
foreign tourists visited India during
the month of May and maximum
during the months of December.

The following graph clearly shows that the highest FTAs in India were in October
December and January-March during 2012.

India is ranked as the 38th country in the world in terms of foreign tourist arrivals. The
most represented countries are the United Kingdom and the United States. In 2012
Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Delhi were the most popular states for foreign tourists.
Domestic tourists visited the states of Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu
most frequently.

Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Agra have been the four most visited cities of India by
foreign tourists during the year 2012. Worldwide, Chennai is ranked 41 by the number
of foreign tourists, while Delhi is ranked at 50, Mumbai at 57, Agra at 65 and Kolkata

FOREIGN TOURISTS ARRIVALS (FTAS) IN INDIA


It can be observed clearly that the FTAs in India have been increasing from all regions
during the year 2012. The growth was maximum from Eastern Europe followed by
Africa, East Asia, Australia, Central and South America.

MODES OF TRAVEL OF FOREIGN TOURISTS ARRIVALS (FTAS) IN INDIA


Travel by air has been found to be the most preferred mode of transport. In 2012, out
of the 6.58 million foreign tourist arrivals in India, majority arrived by air(92%),
followed by land(7 %) and sea(1%). Arrivals through land routes comprised tourists
mainly from Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Figure-2: Arrival of Foreign Tourists in India.

Air travel has been the most preferred mode of travel for the FTAs over the years,
accounting for above 80% share in each year during this period. During last three years
from 2010 onwards, the percentage of FTAs travelling to India by air has remained
more than 90%. The share of arrivals through land check-post has been above 10%
during 2001 to 2008; however, it has been gradually declining over the last 3 years.
Arrivals through sea routes remain less than 1% from 1996 to 2012.

During the year 2012, sex-wise distribution of the FTAs comprises of 58.7% males and
41.3% females.
The government's proposal to infuse over Rs 1,000 crore in developing India as an
attractive tourism destination is being seen as a window to draw more foreign tourists
and foreign exchange, besides enhancing air connectivity and development of heritage
sites within the country.
Now one can easily guess why Max Mueller has said these lines about India"If we were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed
with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow in some parts, a very
paradise on earth, I should point to India."
Such is our India. It is undoubtedly a paradise for the tourists.

THEME 2 : EMPOWER TO LEARN


OPEN TEXT MATERIAL
ABSTRACT :
Harshit heard of the social networking sites and started exploring them on the internet.
To his surprise he came across various educational as well as social networking sites
that give innovative and improved ways of learning. He gradually got prone to the
facilities these platforms offer which broadened his perspectives. He realised that this
advancement in social networking platform is providing him with much better options
to engage with his contemporaries, enhance his skills and access a wide variety of
academic tools and resources which most definitely add up to his convenience.
Harshit learnt about LEARNOUT, a free social learning network for university and
school students. It offers a platform for its users where they can engage in activities like
sharing study related materials, counselling or simply connecting through a vast
network of existing users from around the world. Within a small time span of two years,
more than 80,00,000 students registered for the website and they use the website on
daily basis. The distribution of the students in different age groups was graphically
presented and he got inspired as he thought to himself that maximum number of
children of his age is gaining from this site.
Figure 1: Histogram showing the number of students using learnout in different
age groups

The website offers user generated contents in 7 different languages including Italian,
English, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Serbian and Portuguese. The website is directly
operated from its respective regional head offices thereby providing a direct approach to
the users. LEARNOUT also has its free application available for all android devices.
The website also has a dedicated 24/7 support team to assist the students in their
matters. He surveyed a number of people and recorded his findings on the percentage of
users using this site in different languages:

He also discovered a site named TWOWAY which provides its students with a different
approach towards studies. It offers an interactive way of studying where students get to
create and animate flashcards. The website currently has about 1 million study content
authored by the students. The website also conducts different quizzical campaigns for
the students and tracks the progress of its users. The issues on which the campaigns
were conducted are presented in the form of pie chart.
Harshit also got a platform to spread awareness of the issues which he has to record in
his project work given by his teacher. He could collect the data globally and interpret it
from different perspectives.
Figure 2: The pie chart shows the campaigns conducted on TWOWAY in different
subjects.

Mathematics was troubling him and he needed a special assistance in various concepts.
He received many resource materials to gain more knowledge and achieved higher level
of learning. The site named TROUBLE BUBBLE was the answer to his queries.
TROUBLE BUBBLE offers a very interactive way to the students looking for answers
to the distressing questions. They can ask questions directly from the academic experts
through their vast network. The following data shows the number of questions asked by
students between 2:00pm to 9:00pm.

Harshit was pleased to know that he has the facility to get immediate answers to his
queries through this site. SUPERB, another educational networking site, offers its users
with a unique way to have interaction. It builds a strong connection between students
and renowned teachers from around the world.
SUPERB offers a number of free tools and services to the teachers, which literally
transforms the way of teaching and helps in the provision of superior quality of services
to its users. The website is suitable for students of all ages, whether be a student of
middle school or an undergraduate, SUPERB has stored a lot more for its users to
achieve their educational goals.
The advancements in technology proved to be beneficial for Harshit. With social
networking platforms advancing, they are playing their role to facilitate the students
with their needs and benefit them to achieve their goals. The given frequency polygon
displayed maximum benefit taken by the students from this site. It was an eye opener
for Harshit as he wanted extended learning in all the subjects. Being a smart boy, he
always used to check data before taking any decision.
