CBSE Class X Science latest Sample paper board exam 2020
Studying sample papers of maths, science or of any other subject will boost your preparation of CBSE board exams, the test or midterm examinations papers can’t give you enough idea of the kind of questions would be asked in the current board examinations although the teachers or school administration do their best but only certain numbers of the students could get its benefit who are punctual in doing their homework and update their class workbook and follows the school norms and obedient to their parents. Many of the students are exceptionally do better in the examination due to their special preparation plan of 2 or three months. The CBSE class X Science latest Sample paper board exam 2020 will give you an idea about what kind of question might be asked in this board exam .Our this post is dedicated to all those students who didn’t prepare their maths and science subjects completely,it is our advice to them please go through the sample papers, previous years questions papers and solve as much questions as possible so that you could surprise to all the teachers, your parents, relatives or neighbors and if you are required to help of your teachers or online sites as of us, everyone would be eager to answer your questions and guide you. Many of the students in spite of being sincere or intelligent hesitate to ask the questions in the class, it is time for them to accelerate their pace of preparations, don’t forget the people around you might have assumed what will be your result, so prove the people’s assumptions about you wrong and apply your full potential in your preparation. Study the solutions to important questions of science and maths published by future study points.

1) Define catenation.
2) How does the valency of an element vary across a period?
3) Answer question numbers 3(a) – 3(d) on the basis of your understanding of the following paragraph and the related studied concepts.
Renewable energy sources such as wind energy are vital for the Indian economy, not only from the point of view of supply but also from the perspective of environmental and social benefits. India is the world’s fifth-largest wind-power producer and the largest windmill facilities in India are installed in Tamil Nadu. Muppandal is a small village of Tamil Nadu and one of the most important sites of wind-farm in the state. It uses wind from the Arabian Sea to produce renewable energy. The suitability of Muppandal as a site for wind farms stems from its geographical location as it has access to the seasonal monsoon winds.
The electrical generators used on wind turbines in sites like Muppandal, produce an output AC of 240 V and a frequency of 50 Hz even when the wind speed is fluctuating. A 2 Central Board of Secondary Education transformer may be required to increase or decrease the voltage so it is compatible with the end usage, distribution or transmission voltage, depending on the type of interconnection.
3(a) State the principle behind electric generator.
3(b) The output frequency of wind turbine is 50 Hz. What is meant by this statement?
3(c) Why do you think Muppandal is at an advantageous position for this project?
3(d) Based on the data represented in the graph below, which of the two cities A or B would be an ideal location for establishing a wind-farm and why?
4) The presence of a particular group of bacteria in water bodies indicates contamination. Identify the group.
5) What is meant by it that the frequency of the electric current in your household is 50 hertz.
6) When a 5-volt battery is connected across an unknown resistor there is a current of 200 mA in the circuit. The value of the resistance of the resistor is.
i) 50 Ω
ii) 25 Ω
iv) 2.5 Ω
7) The electric power is equivalent to
i) Product of electric energy and time
ii) The product of voltage and electric current
iii) The product of resistance and electric current
iv) The product of charge and time
8) The position of four elements P, Q, R, and S are shown below in the modern periodic table. Which element is most likely to form acidic oxide.
9) Elements A, B, C, and D have atomic numbers 12, 16, 28 and 17 respectively. Which of them are reactive non-metals?
10) When we enter a dark room coming from outside immediately the things inside the room do not appear clear to our eyes. This is because.
- i) light travel slower in a dark
- ii) pupils take time to adjust
iii)pupils open very quickly in the dark
- iv) pupils do not open at all in the dark
11) Mention any one point of difference between pepsin and trypsin.
12)In the human being, the respiratory pigment is hemoglobin which has a very high affinity for oxygen. Where does this pigment is present in the body?
13)Which greenhouse gas is produced when coal and petroleum are burnt.
