Answer 1.
(i) India is called a subcontinent because of its :

  1. Vast size.
  2. Diversity like : The Thar desert, The icecovered lofty Himalayas in the north, Vast Indo-Gangetic plains to its south, The Deccan plateau, The high temperature and heavy rains of the tropical monsoon climate.

B – Bhabar.
C – Bhangar.
D – Khadar.


(a) Godavari originates in the Nashik district of Maharashtra.
(b) Godavari forms its delta before joining Bay of Bengal in Andhra Pradesh.

(iv) Urban forestry pertains to raising and management of trees on public and privately owned lands in and around urban centres. It includes green-belts, road side avenues, parks etc. Its main objectives are :

  1. Reduction of environmental pollution.
  2. Recreation and improving aesthetic values.


(v) Irrigation is necessary in India because of :

  1. Uneven distribution of rainfall. Rainfall is confined to short duration of 3-4 months in the rainy season. The rest of the year is more or less dry. Provision of irrigation can make multiple cropping possible.
  2. High yielding variety of crops require regular moisture to increase farm production-Crops like rice, jute, sugarcane require large amounts of water, which can be met only through irrigation.

(vi) Two problems of Green Revolution are :

1. Inter-crop Imbalances : Though all the crops like wheat, rice, jowar, bajara and maize have gained from Green Revolution, it is wheat which has benefited the most. The HYV seeds for pulses and oilseeds have not been developed so far at all. The result is an excess of production in two main food grains-wheat and rice and shortages in most other like oilseeds and pulses.

2. Regional Disparities : Green Revolution affected only those areas which were already better placed from an agricultural point of view like Western U.P., Punjab and Haryana in the north and Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the south. It has hardly touched Eastern India, Assam, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha.

(vii) Important aspects of environmental management are :

  1. To create a pollution free environment and to establish co-ordination between government and non-government organisations.
  2. To educate people at all levels.
  3. To develop long-term and short-term plans for the conservation of environment.
  4. To protect bio-diversity of the world.

Hydroelectric Power

  1. Hydroelectric power is cheaper and does not produce any waste while generating power.
  2. It does not cause pollution.

Nuclear Power


  1. Nuclear power is a bit more costlier and produces radioactive waste which is very difficult and expensive to dispose off.
  2. The process of mining and refining uranium causes pollution


1. Roads can navigate high gradients and sharp turns which railways cannot do.
2. Road transport system establishes easy contact between farms, fields, factories and markets and provides door-to-door service.

(x) Challenges faced by the tourism industry in India today are :

  1. Unplanned, unrestricted growth of tourism in India deprives the tourists of the original charm and beauty and ultimately proves disastrous.
  2. The development of tourism depends upon the development of infrastructure of national highways, railways, ports, airports, hotels and other services. Inadequacies of such infrastructural facilities adversely affect tourism.
