KSEEB (Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board) Science Sample Paper for Class 10th
Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board is abbreviated as KSEEB which was recognized in 1966. Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board conducts Class X Secondary School Leaving Certificate examination (SSLC) for the last 43 years. This board conducts other exams also apart from SSLC examination and this board is also working to progress the educational ratio and evaluation system in Karnataka state. KSEEB Board also conducts complementary exam in the month of June for the unsuccessful students in order to help students to join the higher educational courses in the month of July.

24) Which compound of copper is formed when nitric acid is added to detect the presence of copper present in ornamental gold also state why there is no change in gold?
Ans: The compound formed is Copper nitrate and there is no change in gold as gold does not react with the acid.
25) Mention reasons about acute shortage of drinking water.
Ans: Reasons about acute shortage of drinking water are :
- Ever increasing population
- disappointing management of water
- Pollution of water
- Deforestation of soil erosion
26) State Kepler’s first law and third law of planetary motion also mention what is the use of the Kepler’s third law ?
Ans: Kepler’s first law states that the planet moves in the elliptical orbits around the sun with the sun at one focus.
Kepler’s third law that the cube of the average distance of a planet from the sun is proportional to the square of its period of revolution.
Kepler’s third law is used to find the mass of the sun or the period of revolution.
27) Which element is produced when silicon dioxide reacts with magnesium also write the equation of the chemical reaction ?
Ans: Element produced when silicon dioxide reacts with magnesium is Amorphous silicon. Chemical equation is SiO2 + 2Mg -> Si + 2 MgO.
28) When monochromatic light is passed through benzene like organic liquids what will be the effect ?
Ans: When monochromatic light is passed through benzene like organic liquids the scattered light will no longer be monochromatic and the scattered light contained higher and lower frequencies in addition to that of incident light. This effect is known as Raman effect.
29) State the name of the stages of stellar evolution of sun like stars, in the galaxies.
Ans: The name of the stages are :
- Red giant
- White dwarf
- Black dwarf.
30) Define Inflorescence .
Ans: Inflorescence is a special branch bearing a cluster of flowers.
31) State the principle of working of rocket also mention the practical aspects that need to be considered while launching the rocket.
Ans: The principle of working of rocket states that the total momentum of a system is conserved when the net external force acting on the system is zero. The practical aspects considered while launching the rocket are :
- As the rocket consumes fuel at every instant, its mass goes on decreasing and velocity increases.
- Further the acceleration due to gravity changes continuously as the rocket ascends and velocity increases.
- The atmosphere offers resistance in the lower strata of the atmosphere.
32) A boy with HIV positive was denied admission in a school and the court did not approve this so what scientific justification do you make on this ?
Ans: The scientific justification made is that HIV will not be transmitted by touching, sharing common toilet, playing together or by eating food together. Thus school should not deny admission.

Ans:The measures are :
- Use protective glasses for eyes.
- Have a brief simple exercise for eyes
34) What is magnitude scale of a star ?
Ans: Magnitude scale is a system known to represent the apparent brightness of the star .
35) What is meant by conservation of water ?
Ans: Conservation of water is an effort made by a society as a whole to prevent pollution of water and to have judicious use of water.
