In sample P. 3 (b (i Based on Table 1. Oxygen concentration in sample P is lower than oxygen concentration in sample R. Oxygen concentration in sample R is high. notes (a Record the time taken for methylene blue solution become ) colourless in the boxes provided in Table 1. 3 2 . Time taken for methylene blue to become colourless for sample R is 42 minutes Time taken for methylene blue to become colourless for sample Q is 23 minutes Time taken for sample P is 10 minutes that is shorter than time taken for sample R that is 42 minutes to become colourless 3 (i State the inferences which corresponds to the observations i) in 1(b)(i). the time taken for methylene blue to become colourless is shorter. state two different observations . the methylene blue become colourless slow/ longer time taken 3.N Questions Marks Student o. the methylene blue become colourless very fast/ less time taken 2. oxygen concentration is low. ) ) Able to state any two observations correctly according to the criteria: o Sample o Time taken o Become colourless Sample answers: Time taken for methylene blue to become colourless for sample P is 10 minutes. Able to make one logical inference for each observation based on the criteria o Sample o Oxygen concentration o Duration of time for methylene blue to become colourless Sample answers: 1.

base on 3 criteria: 3 manipulated variable responding variable relationship Sample answer : 1.1% of Methylene blue is Metlhylene blue used for all experiments/ 1 concentration / volume/ ml volume/ 200 ml of volume of water sample water sample. 2. has longest time for methylene blue to become colourless. The most polluted water has shortest time for methylene blue to become colourless. Able to state a hypothesis to show a relationship between the manipulated variable and responding variable and the hypothesis can be validated. Sample water P is the most polluted has shortest time for methylene blue to become colourless.(c) Complete Table 2 based on this experiment. Fixed variable 0. Table 2 (d) State the hypothesis for this experiment. 3. Responding variable Time taken to Time taken for methylene decolourise methylene blue to become blue colourless is recorded by using a stopwatch. Sample water R is less polluted compare to water samples P and Q. 3 . Variables How the variables are 3 operated Manipulated: Water sample Water sample is collected from three different locations.

less oxygen in the water and BOD value is high. o Sample o Time taken with unit. 4 .(e) (i) Construct a table and record all the data collected in this experiment based on the following criteria: Water sample Time taken Able to tabulate a table and fill in data accurately base on three criteria: o Table draw with labeled column. oxygen concentration and BOD value of water in this experiment? Able to state clearly and accurately the relationship between: 3 o time taken o oxygen content o BOD value Sample answer: 1. 3 Able to draw a bar chart base on criteria: o Correct chart o Axis with correct scale o Correct value (g) What is the relationship between time taken. Sample answers : Water Sample Time taken ( minutes) P 10 Q 23 R 42 3 (f) Based on the data in 1(e) draw a bar chart of time taken for methylene blue solution become colourless against water samples. The shorter time taken for methylene blue to become colourless.

less than water sample P. BOD is amount of oxygen in the water sample that used by microorganisms and can be shown by time taken of methylene blue to become colourless. 3 (i) This experiment is repeated by using water sample from chicken farm areas. because chicken farm water can be contaminated with chicken faeces/ or any other answer. 3 Able to predict the result accurately. state the operational definition for BOD Able to explain BOD base on experiment correctly according to the criteria: o Amount of oxygen in the water sample o used by microorganisms o shown by time taken Sample answer: 2. Predict the time taken for methelyne blue to become colourless.(h) Based on the result of this experiment. (j) Arrange the water samples from the most polluted to the least polluted. Able to arrange the 3 level of polluted water 3 Sample answer: Types of water Polluted P Most Q Moderate R Least Most polluted  least polluted P  Q  R 5 . o Expected time o Compare to which o Reason Sample answer: The time taken for methylene blue to become colourless is 5 minutes.
