Passage for Q(4–6) : In a field one summer’s day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its
hearts’s content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil an ear of pea he was taking to the nest.
“Why not come and chat with me, “ said the Grasshopper, “instead of to toiling and moling in that way ? ” “I
am helping to lay up food for the winter,” said the Ant, “and recommend you to do the same.” “Why bother
about winter?” said the Grasshopper ; “We have got plenty of food at present.” But the Ant went on its way
and continued its toil. When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food an found itself dying of hunger -
while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected int he summer.
Then the Grasshopper kenw : It is best to prepare for days of need

(C) Ant couldn’t have passed by easily since it is the favourite food of grasshoppers.
(D) Grasshoppers avoid coming out in summber and thus there cannot be grasshopper in the story.

5. What could be the most plausible reason that all the ants that toiled and moiled int he summer were happy
and content in the winter ?
(A) Ants were probably happy since their food was not shared with Grasshopper.
(B) Ants need not worry to work anymore since they had food stocked.
(C) Ants were happy since they enjoyed working together in summer.
(D) Food that was procured was efficiently distributed and managed so that all the ants were fed equality.

6. Grasshopper was at fault in this story mostly because
(A) Of its attitude towards ants who were working tirelessly.
(B) Of not having a forethought to store food for the upcoming winter season.
(C) Of chirping and singing to its heart’s content in the summer.
(D) It should have asked ants for the food and managed to surpass the winter somehow.

Passage Q(16-18) : Diatoms are the most common photosynthetic aquatic microorganisms group of algae which are
unicellular and can exist as colonies in the shape of filaments or ribbons, fans, zigzags or stars depending
on the quality of the water. Diatom communities are a popular tool for studies of water quality and pollution
management. Karthik from Bangalore recently went on a field trip from Bangalore to Mysore. On the way he
stopped his car at a sewage canal, a lake and a mountain stream and collected water samples from all the
these places for his lab work. After a careful analysis of his water samples. he observed that diatoms came
with varying size/shape and the size/shape increases has (have?)
sometihing to do with the water quality.

20. An acid-base titration is a technique where a solution of known concentration of acid/base is used to determine
the concentration of an unknown solution of acid/base. These titrations typically use a pH indicator solution
to denote the end point of the reaction. A pH indicator is a compound added in small quantities to a solution
to indicate the pH visually (generally by appearance/disappearance or change in colour). A typical procedure
is as follows:

A certain volume 'V1' of unknown concentration 'M1' of HCI is taken in a conical flask, to which a few drops of
phenolphthalein indicator solution is added. The solution remains colourless. From a burette (a graduated
dropper) a solution of NaOH, whose concentration is known, 'M2', is added dropwise into the conical flask
until a pale pink colour is obtained and is termed as the end point. The amount of solution dispensed from the
burette to obtain the end point is noted as 'V2'. Phenolphthalein indicator changes its colour to pink only
when the pH of the solution is above 9.5. Similarly, another indicator, methyl orange, is red in colour below pH
3.7 and yellow above. Given below is a graph of pH of the solution in the conical flask and the reading of the
burette in the course of the titration. The equivalent point is theoretically defined as the point in the graph
where the number of moles HCI in the conical flask becomes equal to the number of moles of NaOH run down
the burette. Note the difference between end point and equivalence point.
Which is the correct graph that represents the titration of NH4OH (from burette) with HCI?

(A) (B)

accumulation of charges. This implies that the net current entering the junction should be equal to net
current leaving a junction.

net electromotive force (emf). This follows from the principle of conservation of energy.

46. Raju Sharma, a 10th standard student participated in 100 meter sprint. During running he developed painful
muscle contraction and fell down. The physical education teacher rushed to him and gave a hot water
massage. Raju Sharma slowly recovered from the cramp. The teacher explained the physiology behind the
cramp and the sudsequent relief.
Identify the right explanation.
(A) Because of the quick movement, the muscles looses its elasticity and are stressed. The inflammation
developed during this process causes cramp. After hot water massage the inflammation subsides and the
pain gets relieved.
(B) During vigorous physical activity, aerobic respiration in the muscles increases which leads to the
accumulation of more CO2 in the muscles. This causes cramps. Later CO2 was relieved upon hot water
massage resulting in pain relief.
(C) During vigorous physical activity, lactic acid accumulates in the muscles due to anaerobic respiration.
This causes the cramps. Hot water massage improves the circulation of blood and O2 in the muscles. As a
result lactic acid is converted into CO2 and water. Thus the pain gets relieved.
(D) During quick movements, the nerves will not co-operate with the muscles. There is a stimulus which is
taken to spinal cord and the effector function was done by motor neurons which cause cramp. On hot water
massage the stimulus was subsided. Thus the pain gets relieved.
