Q5. Paragraph-Based Questions:

A. Read the given paragraph carefully and answer the following questions:

The earth has two types of motions. It receives light from the sun but due to the spherical shape of the earth, only half part of it gets light from the sun at a time. The portion facing the sun experiences day while the other half away from the sun experiences night.

It takes 365¼ days (one year) to revolve around the sun. We consider a year as consisting of 365 days only and ignore six hours for the sake of convenience. Six hours saved every year are added to make one day (24 hours) over a span of four years.

Q1. What are the two types of motions of the earth?

Q2. Why does the earth’s only half part get light from the sun at a time?

Q3. One extra day in case of a leap year is added in which month of the year?

Q4. Why is there a Leap Year every four years?

Q5. When will be the next Leap Year  ?

B. Read the given paragraph carefully and answer the given questions:

The Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the sun. The rays of the sun fall directly on the Tropic of Cancer. As a result, these areas receive more heat. The
areas near the poles receive less heat as the rays of the sun are slanting. The North Pole is inclined towards the sun and the places beyond the Arctic Circle
experience continuous daylight for about six months. The longest day and the shortest night at these places occur on 21st June. At this time in the Southern Hemisphere all these conditions are reversed. This position of the earth is called the Summer Solstice.
The reverse happens in the Southern Hemisphere.

21st March and 23rd September , direct rays of the sun fall on the equator. At this position, neither of the poles is tilted towards the sun; so, the whole earth
experiences equal days and equal nights. This is called an equinox.

Q1. When do we have the longest day and shortest night in the Northern Hemisphere?

Q2. During which season the Australians celebrate Christmas?

Q3. When do we have the longest day and shortest night in the Southern Hemisphere?

Q4. What is Summer Solstice ?

Q5. What is Equinox?
