In CBSE board exams and NEET Exams, Assertion and Reason type questions are often included in the question paper to test student’s understanding and analytical skills.
In this type of question, an assertion is given, followed by a reason. The students are required to identify whether the assertion and the reason are true or false and if they are related or not.
Assertion: The boiling point of water decreases as the altitude increases.
Reason: At higher altitudes, the atmospheric pressure decreases.
In this case, the assertion is true and the reason is also true. Moreover, the reason explains the assertion.
Assertion: Plants require sunlight for photosynthesis.
Reason: Sunlight is a form of energy.
In this case, the assertion is true and the reason is also true. However, the reason does not explain the assertion, since there are other forms of energy that can be used for photosynthesis.
It is important to carefully read the assertion and reason statements and determine their validity and relationship. These questions require critical thinking and the ability to identify cause and effect relationships.
Statement type questions are often asked in CBSE board exams and NEET Exams to assess students’ understanding of a particular concept or topic. These questions require students to identify whether a statement is true or false or to complete a statement with the appropriate word or phrase.
Here are some examples of statement type questions that may be asked in CBSE board exams:
True or False: Metals are good conductors of electricity.
Complete the statement: The process by which plants make their own food using sunlight, carbon dioxide and water is called __________.
True or False: The process of converting solid directly into vapour without melting is called sublimation.
Complete the statement: The SI unit of electric current is __________.
True or False: The boiling point of water at sea level is 100 degrees Celsius.
Complete the statement: The force required to stop a moving object is called __________.
True or False: The earth is the third planet from the sun.
Complete the statement: The basic unit of life is the __________.
True or False: A concave lens always forms a virtual image.
Complete the statement: The process of breaking down food into simpler substances to release energy is called __________.
These types of questions require students to have a good understanding of the subject matter and to pay attention to details. It is important to carefully read the statement and choose the appropriate response.
