Science Term 2 Sample Paper 2022 (Unsolved)

Class 10 Science Term 2 Sample Paper 2022, (Science) exams are Students are taught thru NCERT books in some of the state board and CBSE Schools. As the chapter involves an end, there is an exercise provided to assist students to prepare for evaluation. Students need to clear up those exercises very well because the questions inside the very last asked from those.

Sometimes, students get stuck inside the exercises and are not able to clear up all of the questions. To assist students, solve all of the questions, and maintain their studies without a doubt, we have provided a step-by-step NCERT Sample Question Papers for the students for all classes. These answers will similarly help students in scoring better marks with the assist of properly illustrated Notes as a way to similarly assist the students and answer the questions right.

13. The activities of man had adverse effects on all forms of living organisms in the biosphere. Unlimited exploitation of nature by man disturbed the delicate ecological balance between the living and non- living components of the biosphere. The unfavourable conditions created by man himself threatened the survival not only of him but also of the entire living organisms on the mother earth. One of your classmates is an active member of ‘Eco club’ of your school which is creating environmental awareness amongst the school students, spreading the same in the society and also working hard for preventing environmental degradation of the surroundings.         [3]

Section – C

This section has 02 case-based questions (14 and 15). Each case is followed by 03 sub-questions (a), (b), (c). Parts (a) and (b) are compulsory. However, an internal choice has been provided in part (c).

14. While doing experiment on pea plants. A scientist found that pea plants can have round seeds or wrinkled seeds. Also, one of the phenotypes i.e., round seed is completely dominant over the other i.e. wrinkled. So, one day he decides to pollinate one flower of a plant with round seeds using pollen from plant with wrinkled seeds.

(a) Mention the genes for the traits of parents.         [1]

(b) State the trait of F1 hybrids.         [1]

(c) Write the ratio of F2 progeny obtained from this cross. What is the name of the cross?       [2]


Why are the traits acquired during the life time of an individual not inherited? Explain.      [2]

15. Sanjana described a magnetic field by drawing the magnetic field lines. She explained that when a small north magnetic pole is placed in the magnetic field created by a magnet, it will experience a force. And if the North Pole is free, it will move under the influence of magnetic field. Since the direction of magnetic field line is the direction of force on a north pole, so the magnetic field lines always begin from the N-pole of a magnet and end on the S-pole of the magnet. Inside the magnet, however the direction of magnetic field lines is from the S-pole of the magnet to the N-pole of the magnet. Thus, the magnetic field lines are closed curves. When a small compass is moved along a magnetic field line, the compass needle always sets itself along the line tangential to it. So, a line drawn from the south pole of the compass needle to its north pole indicates the direction of the magnetic field at that point.

Based on the given passage answer the following questions:

(a) What is meant by magnetic field lines ?          [1]

(b) What does the degree of closeness of magnetic field lines near the poles signify ?         [1]

(c) Give two uses of a magnetic compass.          [2]


What are the characteristics of magnet field lines?         [2]
