  7. Sunil’s uncle gifted him a box full of mangoes while leaving from native and told him to keep a check on them daily and finish.  Next day, Sunil saw that fresh mangoes had ripened, and two of the ripe mangoes had rotted. What kind of change occurred within the fresh mangoes?

    (a) Physical change as the appearance of mangoes changed
    (b) Chemical change as the smell of mango changed.
    (c) Physical change as the colour of mangoes changed.
    (d) Chemical change as ripening process cannot be reversed.

  8. Rita dipped an iron nail in copper sulphate solution then after some time, the colour of the solution changes from blue to pale green and iron nail gets covered by red coloured deposit. Change of the colour can indicate both, a chemical as well as a physical change.
    What type of change does this experiment signify?

  14. Ridhan left out a block of ice cream, 4 cm in length, in a bowl for some time. It melted into liquid. He then kept the bowl in the freezer. Now, the ice cream formed has the diameter of the bowl. What kind of change occurs in the ice cream and why?

  15. Akshata added a bit of baking soda to vinegar in a test-tube. She heard a hissing sound and saw several bubbles in the test tube. She closed the test tube with a cork that is attached to another test tube containing lime water by a glass tubing. The limewater slowly turns milky in the process. This is shown in the following experimental setup.

    Below mentioned are the observations:
    (a) Hearing of a hissing sound
    (b) Bubbles formation in test tube A
    (c) Gas movement through glass tubing
    (d) Change of the colour in test tube B
    Categorise these observations into physical changes and chemical changes.

    Case-Based Questions

  16. Read the passage and answer the following questions (a), (b) and (c):
    It is known that ships are made of iron, and a part of them is submerged under water. Also, water drops cling to the ship's outer surface above water. Additionally, sea water contains many salts. As a result of the salt water, rust forms more quickly. Despite being painted, ships suffer a lot from rusting.

    (a) Express rusting in the form of an equation.
    (b) Which essential environmental elements assist rusting?
    (c) Suggest any two ways to prevent rusting.

  17. Read the passage and answer the following questions (a), (b) and (c):
    In Class VI you have learnt that salt can be obtained by the evaporation of sea water. The salt obtained in this manner is not pure and the shape of its crystals cannot be seen clearly. However, large crystals of pure substances can be formed from their solutions.

    (a) Define crystallisation.
    (b) Select which of the following substances when kept overnight can be recovered from water without any loss? If ‘Yes’, then how and if ‘No’ then why?
    (i) Common salt dissolved in water
    (ii) Iron nail kept in water
    (iii) Sugar dissolved in water
    (iv) Copper plate kept in water
    (c) Give two applications of crystallisation.
