(c) Ocean water cannot be used for domestic purposes

This statement is True.

(d) Rapid growth of industries is one of the causes for water shortage.

This statement is True.

Question no – (12)

(a) Aquifer is ground water stored between layers of hard rock above the water table.

Correct definition : Aquifer is ground water stored between layers of hard rock below the water table.

(b) The process of evaporation of water in the ground is called infiltration.

Correct definition : The process of seeping of water in the ground is called infiltration.

(c) The evaporation of water from oceans and its arrival back into oceans is called vapour cycle.

Correct definition : The evaporation of water from oceans and its arrival back into oceans is called water cycle.

Question no – (13)

(a) Wells : – The rainwater and groundwater are the sources of well water.

(b) Ground : – The rain water that seeps into the ground is the source of rainwater.

(c) Atmosphere : – The water of lakes, rivers, ponds, oceans seas and other surface waters that evaporate into the sky are the sources of atmospheric water.

Question no – (14)

This statement is True.

Question no – (15)

The rainwater and water from other sources such as rivers and ponds seeps through the soils and fills the empty spaces and cracks deep below the ground. The process of seeping of water into the ground is called infiltration.

Question no – (16)

Rajasthan is a hot and dry place. The challenge of natural scarcity of water was met by a successful experiment. A band of social workers had transformed a dry area into a green place. They have revived five dried-up rivers by constructing water harvesting structures.

Question no – (17)

The correct order of the given statements are –

(i) Increasing population create demand for construction of houses, shops, offices, roads and pavements

(ii) This decreases the open areas like park, and playgrounds.

(iii) Which in turn decreases the seepage of rain water into the ground.

(iv) This results in depletion of water table and creates scarcity of more water

Question no – (18)

(i) In nature the three forms of water can be seen in the form of snow (solid) that covers the top of mountains, in the form of water(liquid) that covers 71 % of the earths surface and in the form of water vapor (gas)that usually comes down in the form of rain.

(ii) In home the three forms of water can be seen in the form of ice (solid ) that we keep in the refrigerator , in the form of water (liquid) that we drink or bath with and in the form of steam ( gas) which evaporates when we boil water.

Question no – (19)

Form of water :

(a) Liquid

(b) Solid

(c) Gas

Process by which it is formed :

(a) Melting and Condensation

(b) Freezing

(c) Evaporation

Location where found :

(a) Found in water bodies like river, oceans, ponds, lakes etc.

(b) Found in mountains, Hills, refrigerators, Glaciers, poles etc.

(c) Found in atmosphere In form of water vapour.

Question no – (20)

 Column I Column II (a) ground water → (v) water table (b) bawri → (iv) small water (c) snow → (i) solid form of water (d) drip irrigation → (iii) water management (e) leaking taps → (ii)  wastage of water

Question no – (21)

(a) WASHFERRET → Freshwater

(b) CHARREGE → Recharge

(c) QUIFERA → Aquifer

(d) WOSN → Snow

Question no – (22)

(a) Clouds gets water from the atmosphere where water vapour are present in the liquid form.

(b) Plants get water from soil by extracting ground water which is present in liquid form above the layers of rock.

(c) Mountains tops gets water from atmosphere which get deposited on the top in the form of snow that is solid in nature.

(d) Aquifer gets water from rain which is present in the liquid form .

(e) Animals gets water from water bodies like lakes , ponds , rivers and rain in the liquid form.

Question no – (24)

The water from rain and other sources that seeps underground from the pores in the soils and gets collected above the layer of rocks underneath are know as ground water. Groundwater are usually the sources for spring, well, aquifers etc.

Question no – (25)

Water is very precious for all the living beings and if we don’t save water now we will face innumerous problems. Plants would not survive without water and so no more oxygen will be produced. Due to absence of water there would be no more water cycle and the earth will much hotter than it is now. There would be no water for us drink and for all others activities that requires water.
