Q17.​​ Discuss the role of an individual in conservation of natural​​ resources.3

Ans.​​ Every individual plays​​ an important role in conservation of natural resources.​​ One should not be selfish to spend the available resources without thinking of others.​​ There is no limit to spend natural resources if available​​ but at the same time one should realize that natural resources are​​ exhaustible and​​ non-renewable sources. The future also depends on such resources.​​ So we should use them wisely.

Q21.​​ Elaborate​​ the physical and physiological benefits of​​ exercise for children.5​​ 

Ans.​​ The following are the physical and physiological benefits of exercise on children


(a)​​ It strengthens the heart.​​ The heart is a muscle. Like other​​ muscles, its performance improves when it is regularly challenged by exercise. The heart responds to exercise by becoming stronger and more efficient.


(b)​​ It controls weight.​​ When a person is​​ sedentary, he tends to take​​ in more calories than​​ they​​ are needed.


(c)​​ It improves energy levels.​​ Regular exercise often makes people feel more energetic, allows them to be more active, and reduces the likelihood that they’ll tire during the day.


d)​​ It strengthens bones.​​ Just as muscles grow stronger when physically stressed, bones also respond by getting stronger.​​ Exercise increases bone density.

5.​​ They don’t waste their free time.

6.​​ They surround themselves with peers who push them to be better.

7.​​ They don’t pretend to know everything.

8.​​ They welcome valid criticism.


Q23.​​ Describe physiological factors determining component of physical fitness.


Ans.​​ Physiological factors determining components of physical fitness are:


(a) Muscular strength:​​ This is the maximum force or tension,​​ a muscle or a muscle group can exert against​​ a resistance. Physiologically the muscle will increase in strength only if it has to increase its workload​​ beyond what is ordinarily required of it.

(b) Power:​​ This is the ability of the body to release maximum muscle contraction in the shortest possible​​ time.

(c) Speed:​​ This is the rapidity with which one can repeat successive movements in the same pattern.

(d) Muscular endurance:​​ This is the ability of a muscle or muscle group to perform repeated contractions​​ against a resistance load or to sustain contraction for an extended period time with less discomfort and​​ more rapid recovery.

(e) Agility:​​ This is the ability of a person to change direction or body position as quickly as possible and​​ regain body control to proceed with another movement.

(f) Flexibility:​​ This is a quality of the muscles, ligaments and tendons that enables the joints of the body​​ to move easily through a complete range of movements.


Q24.​​ Give the definition of the following:5

a.​​ Work

b.​​ Power

c.​​ Energy

d.​​ Static​​ Friction

e.​​ Angular Motion


Ans. (a)​​ Work​​ refers to an activity involving a force and the movement in the​​ direction of the force. It can also be defined as the work done by a constant force as the product of the force and the distance moved in the direction of the force.


Work = Force x Distance


(b)​​ Power​​ is the rate of doing work or the rate of using energy. The above definition can be expressed as an equation.


Power = Work/Time


(c)​​ Energy​​ is the capacity to do work. However, there are various forms of energy but in the field of games and sports our main concern is about mechanical energy. Mechanical energy is the combination of kinetic and potential energy.


(d)​​ Static Motion:​​ The opposing force that comes into play when one body tends to move over the surface of another but the actual motion has not yet started, is called static friction.


(e)​​ Angular motion​​ is also referred to as rotatory motion. It occurs when all points on a body or object move in circular or circular parts of circle about the same fix central line or axis. Angular motion can occur about an axis with the body or outside the body.


Q25.​​ Define motivation. Explain its types and​​ techniques?5

Ans.​​ Motivation is a need or desire that serves to energize behavior and​​ to direct it towards a goal. Motivation can be divided​​ into two types:​​ 


Intrinsic Motivation:​​ This type of motivation is directly linked with the natural instincts. The individual who is intrinsically or naturally motivated,​​ performs an act because he finds interest within the activity.​​ 


Extrinsic Motivation:​​ Extrinsic motivation refers to behavior that is driven by external rewards such as money, fame, grades, and praise.​​ 


Technique of Motivation


(a)​​ Praise and Blame

(b)​​ Reward and Punishment

(c)​​ Presence of Opposite Sex

(d)​​ Knowledge of Progress

(e)​​ Competition


Q26.​​ What do you mean by coordinative abilities and elaborate​​ the types of coordinative abilities.5

Ans.​​ Coordination is the ability to repeatedly execute a sequence of movements smoothly and accurately. This may involve the senses, muscular contractions and joint movements. Everything that we participate in,​​ requires the ability to coordinate our limbs to achieve a​​ successful outcome - from walking to the more complex movements of athletic events like the pole vault.


Types of coordinative abilities


(a)​​ Balance ability​​ is understood as an ability to keep body or its parts in a relatively stable position.


(b)​​ Combinatory ability​​ is understood as an ability to simultaneously put partial movements together into more complex movement structures.


(c)​​ Kinesthetic differentiation ability​​ means an ability to realize kinematic and dynamic features of movement.


(d)​​ Orientation ability​​ is an ability to realize position of the body or its parts in space and time.


(e)​​ Rhythm ability​​ enables to grasp and meteorically express rhythm which is externally determined or contained in the motor activity itself.
