Q13.​​ What do you mean by food intolerance?


Ans.​​ Food intolerance is more common than food allergy. Food intolerance is a term used widely for varied physiological responses associated with a particular food. In simple words food intolerance means the individual elements of certain foods that cannot be properly processed and absorbed by our digestive system.

Q18.​​ Define flexibility and discuss the effect of ageing in​​ flexibility3

Ans.​​ Flexibility is the range of movements of joints. An individual, who has proper flexibility, can perform his work very easily. Flexibility is not only significant in the field of sports and games but also equally important for an individual in daily life.


Q19.​​ State any two factors which affect the projectile trajectory.


Ans.​​ 1.​​ Any object when projected at different angles covers different distances. When it is projected or released at the angle of 30° making a parabolic path, it covers less distance i.e., AB. When it is projected at the angle of 60°, it covers, a distance i.e., AC and when it is release at the angle of 45° making a parabolic path it covers the maximum distance i.e., AD. Here it is supposed that the initial velocity in all the cases is same.


2. The distance covered by an object depends on the initial velocity of the projectile. If the initial velocity is more, the object covers maximum distance. On the other hand, if initial velocity is less, the object covers less distance.


Q20.​​ Elucidate in detail about the Intramurals and extramural.​​ 5

Ans.​​ Intramurals:​​ This means that the activities which are performed or​​ conducted within the walls or within the campus of an institution. Intramurals are organized only for the students of a school or institution. No student of other school can participate in such competitions.

Q22.​​ What is the impact of surface and environment on the​​ athlete/​​ player.5

Ans.​​ The surfaces on which athletes run,​​ play a large role in determining how well they perform and how likely they are to get injured. To understand why this is so, it is important to realize that running is essentially a series of collisions between your body and the ground. There are different kinds of surfaces on which we play sports, e.g. natural grass, wooden flooring, synthetic surfaces for sport and recreational visage.


Playing surfaces also play​​ an​​ important​​ role to avoid sports injuries​​ when the friction is optimum and the hardness of the surface is according to the game. The chances to get injures are​​ very less. Playing surfaces​​ also increase the life of ankle and knee by providing proper shock absorber between the body and surface of playing.


Impact of Environment:​​ Environmental conditions involve one or more different circumstances, as a condition to be faced in regular training or as an anticipated condition that will be encountered at a future time. Environmental conditions include warm weather, cold weather, high altitude,​​ rugged​​ topography, man-made impacts on air quality, wind speed, rain, time zone changes, indoor atmospheric conditions, and crowd noise. Warm weather, which is often accompanied by high humidity, is likely the most common adverse environmental factor encountered by athletes. Warm weather and humidity are also readily adapted to through a gradual introduction of the body to the unaccustomed heat, through both day-to-day living in the warmer conditions as well as training.


Q23.​​ Explain the term ‘stress’. How can it be managed?​​  ​​ ​​​​ 5


Ans.​​ Stress consists of bodily changes produced by physiological or psychological conditions that tend to upset the homeostatic balance. In medical language ‘stress’ is defined as a perturbation of the body’s homeostasis.​​ It can be managed in the following way:


1.​​ The individual who is under stress, should try to build up self-confidence. He should have enough confidence to deal with the stress.


2.​​ Developing various type of hobbies, such as gardening, TV matching, swimming, listening to music is also significant for reducing stress.


3.​​ One should try to stay cool and confident when there is stress. Remaining in such a state can be helpful in reducing stress.


4.​​ Stressed persons usually remain busy in talking about their own stress. They become pessimistic. You can be affected by their views. So, always avoid such people who remain under stress.


Q24.​​ Elucidate any 5 physiological changes due to ageing process. ​​​​ 5


Ans. 1. Changes in metabolism and body composition:​​ With​​ advancement of age our body needs less energy and the metabolism slows down. Consequently there is an increase in the accumulation of body, fat and lean body weight (bones, ligaments, tissues, tendons, muscles and water) decreases. The metabolic rate decreases gradually with the increasing age. It also results in more accumulation of body fat.


2. Changes in nervous system:​​ A number of research studies indicate that reaction time and moment time slow down with increasing age. Their​​ brain’s weight, the size of its network and its blood flow decreases with the age. However, the brain adopts to these changes growing new patterns of nerve endings. To recall memories becomes slow.


3. Changes in the gastrointestinal system:​​ With increasing age, there is a reduction in the production of hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes and saliva. These changes may result in delayed emptying of stomach, impaired swallowing. The breakdown and absorption of foods may also be impaired. The liver becomes less efficient in metabolizing drugs and repairing damaged liver cells.


4. Changes in urinary system:​​ As the age, the mass of the kidneys decreases. This leads to reduction in the rate of blood filtration by the kidneys. The capacity of bladder decreases and there is an increase in residual urine. These changes increase the changes of urinary infection.


5. Changes in flexibility:​​ The elasticity of tendons, ligaments and joint capsules is decreased with ageing. The elderly persons lose 8- 10 cm of lower back and hip​​ flexibility according to a research study. The range of movement is restricted as the age increases.


Q25.​​ How can you improve body image and​​ self-esteem?5

Ans.​​ Body image is based on your thoughts and feelings about the way your​​ body looks.​​ Self-esteem relates to how much you like yourself, and how you recognize or appreciate your individual character, qualities, skills, and accomplishments.​​ Body image and​​ self-esteem​​ can​​ be improved by following ways:

(b)​​ Before starting for the camping site, go through the weather forecast​​ for the area. At the camp site,​​ watch the sky for changes.

(c) Reach the camp site with enough time to check the complete site during day time.

(d) Avoid areas of natural hazards for camping.

(e) Keep fuel burning appliances like stoves far away from​​ tents.
