(a) Both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.
(b) Both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion.
(c) Assertion is true but reason is false.
(d) Assertion is false but reason is true.
(e) Both Assertion and reason are false.

1. Assertion: When lightning strikes, the sound is heard a little after the flash is seen.
Reason: The velocity of light is greater than that of the sound.
(a) Both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

2. Assertion: Two persons on the surface of moon cannot talk to each other.
Reason: There is no atmosphere on moon.
(a) Both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

1. What are vibrations?
Vibration means a kind of rapid to and fro motion of an object.

2. Give an example to show that light travels faster than sound.
Lightning:
The most common example of showing that light travels faster than sound is lightning. Whenever a lightning strikes, you see the lightning first and then hear the thunder after some time.

3. To increase loudness of sound by four times, by how much should the amplitude of vibration be changed?
Loudness of a sound depends on the amplitude of the vibration. So to increase loudness of sound by four times, the amplitude of the vibration also to be increased by four times.

4. What is an ultrasonic sound?
A sound with a frequency greater than 20000 Hz is called as ultrasonic sound.

5. Give two differences between music and noise.
Music:

1. The sound that provides a pleasing sensation to the ear.
2. It is produced by the regular patterns of vibrations.

Noise:

1. Sound that is unpleasant to the ear
2. It is produced by the irregular and non-periodic vibrations.

6. What are the hazards of noise pollution?

1. Noise may cause irritation, stress, nervousness and headache.
2. Long term exposure to noise may change the sleeping pattern of a person.
3. Sustained exposure to noise may affect hearing ability. Sometimes, it leads to loss of hearing.
4. Sudden exposure to louder noise may cause a heart attack and unconsciousness.
5. Noise of horns, loud speakers, etc., cause disturbances leading to lack of concentration.
6. Noise pollution affects a person’s peace of mind.

7. Mention few measures to be taken to reduce the effect of noise pollution.

1. Strict guidelines should be set for the use of loudspeakers on social, religious and political occasions.
2. All automobiles should have effective silencers.

8. Define the following terms:

1. Amplitude
2. Loudness

Amplitude:
Amplitude is the maximum displacement of a vibrating particle from its mean position. It is denoted by ‘A’ and its unit is ‘metre’ (m).

Loudness:
It is defined as the characteristic of a sound that enables us to distinguish a weak or feeble sound from a loud sound. The unit of loudness of sound is decibel (dB).

9. How does planting trees help in reducing noise pollution?
