Question 25.
What do you understand by the term Blood doping? [3]Answer:
Blood doping is an illegal practice of injecting oxygenated blood into an athlete before an event. This boosts the number of red blood cells in the bloodstream and thus enhances athletic performance. These blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and improve an athlete’s aerobic capacity (C02 max) and endurance due to higher concentration in the blood. This technique helps to improve the athlete’s performance
temporarily but it may prove fatal at times.

Question 26.
Explain the three problems faced by adolescents. [3]Answer:
Owing to various changes, children of this age group face many problems. The major problems, which adolescents face, are described below:

Question 27.
There are different types of scales which were used to measure the performance. Write about the scales in brief. [3]Answer:
Scales of Measurement:
Measurement numbers are composed of scales.
There are four scales of measurement:
Nominal measurement scales – Nominal measurement scales are used to name or label things or to depict categories. Nominal scales put things or people into categories. e.g., Gender is categorised as Male and Female.

Ordinal scales – Ordinal scales order or rank things. In measurement, an assigned rank given to a person or thing is an ordinal number. e.g., First, Second and Third rank in sports.

Interval scale – The most commonly used scale in measurement in physical education is the interval scale. Interval measurement scales are based on a continuum where the interval (or distance) between any two numbers is always the same. The intervals are equal to each other. e.g., 2, 4, 6, 8 are at equal intervals of 2. This scale does not have an absolute meaning of zero.

Ratio scale – The most advanced, sophisticated, and the most precise measurement scale is the ratio scale. The ratio measurement scale is distinguished from the interval measurement scale by the fact that it has an absolute, true it that has meaning. e.g., if somebody’s pulse is zero means there is no life in the individual. If something weighs zero, it means it is weightless.

Question 28.

Question 34.
Describe the skeletal system of the human body. Highlight the effects of exercise on it. [5]Answer:
Skeletal or Bony System: This system consists of a large number of bones that form a structure called a skeleton. The skeleton serves the purpose of a strong framework for the attachment of various muscles of our body and also serves as a source of protection for important organs of our body, such as brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. It gives shape to the body. Its bones serve as levers in doing work. These bones are connected together to form joints. Joints are held firmly together by strong white fibrous bands called ligaments. Joints: The joints of the body ca n be classified into three main categories, i.e.,
(i) Immovable joints as in the skull,
(ii) Slightly movable joints such as between the bodies of the vertebrae, and
(iii) Freely movable joints, such as shoulder, hip joints, etc.

These joints enable us to perform movements like:

  • Flexion and Extension
  • Rotation
  • Elevation and Depression
  • Abduction and Adduction
  • The movements of the body are performed by the bones with the help of muscles that are attached to them.

Effects of Exercise on the Skeleton System:
During exercise, bones have to be moved to various positions. These movements are made possible due to the provision of joints in the body. Therefore, during exercise, the joints have to bear a lot of stress, which puts a lot of strain on its ligaments which exert a binding force and the cartilages, which are the paddings in between the bones. This strain is borne by the ligaments and cartilages up to a certain limit but when the strain exceeds a limit, these get injured. Excessive strain can also cause the fracture of a bone. Due to the injury of ligaments or cartilages or both ligaments and cartilages, the malfunctioning of the joints takes place.

It leads to pain and swelling in the area. If this malfunction is allowed to continue for a long time, it can lead to a deformity of the joint. effects of Regular Exercise: The effects of regular exercise over a considerable period of time can be enumerated as under:

  • As exercise imposes stress upon the tissues of the skeletal system, then in turn these tissues become stronger.
  • The hyaline cartilage at the end of the bones becomes thicker and better at shock absorption.
  • Tendons become thicker and able to withstand greater force.
  • Ligaments stretch slightly to enable greater flexibility at the joint.
  • Exercise helps the skeleton to move freely and smoothly; it improves the flexibility of joints.
  • There will not be a postural defect on the body. Exercise helps the bones and joints at accurate positions. It helps to improve the deformity of the body.
  • Regular exercise improves blood cell production which reduces the risk of bone cancer.

Question 35.
Enlist the principles for the development of Physical Fitness. [5]Answer:
Principles of physical fitness: Regular physical fitness exerdse is required for an individual to develop and maintain physical fitness and proper
growth of the body.

Principles for the development of physical fitness:
(i) Specificity: The chosen programme must meet the specific needs of the individual. For example, if speed is desired, speed exercises should be chosen.

(ii) Tolerance: Exercise should not be too easy or too difficult to achieve. It should be within the individual’s tolerance capacity.

(iii) Total body involvement: The exercise programme should be designed in such a way that exercise in every part of the body is done to ensure proportionate body development.

(iv) Progressive over-loading: A load of exercise should be increased step by step for the improvement of the physical fitness level of an individual. It should be progressively increased from simple to complex, keeping in mind the individual’s tolerance capacity.

(v) Age and sex: Physical fitness level varies according to age and sex. The intensity and volume of fitness work should be planned separately for boys and girls and according to their growth patterns.

(vi) Regularity: One has to maintain regularity in order to achieve and maintain physical fitness.

(vii) Proper rest and sleep: Insufficient rest and sleep result in fatigue and has a negative effect on regularity and progression. It is suggested that a minimum of 6-8 hours of comfortable sleep must be taken in a day.

(viii) Wanning up: A session of thorough warming up is necessary for participating in any training programme. Warming up prepares muscles and the heart for the workout. Warming up generally increases the body temperature before the strenuous workout and prevents muscle injury.

(ix) Limbering down: It is also known as ‘cooling down’. Limbering down promotes quicker recovery from fatigue and the individual feels fresh for the next day’s training session. (Any five)

Question 36.
Give an introduction to the Ancient Olympic Games. [5]Answer:
Ancient Olympic Games: The origin of the Olympic Games belongs to Greece. Ancient Olympic Games were participated in the pre-historic period and continued for many centuries as Greece’s festival. The records say that the first historic mention of games occurred in the year 776 BCE. These games were played in the state of Athens near the valley of the Appheur River at the Olympiad. The games were held with religious customs in honour of their god Zeus’. The ceremony of the Olympic Games begins on the new moon day in July after every four years.

The events of Olympics continued for five days in precise order. On the first day of the games, the priest performed the rituals with a grand opening and burned the sacred torch. On the next day, Amphibians (animal games) were played. On the third day, ‘Diaulos’ (foot races) ‘Dolichos’ (chariot races and equestrian), and ‘pentathlon’ (combination races, throwing, jumping) were performed. On the fourth day, ‘Puglis’ (boxing, wrestling, sword fighting, and other contact games) were played.

On, the final day of the closing ceremony, the prizes were given to heroes. The flock of pigeons were sent to all cities of Greece which carried the names of the champions. The prizes (crowns) given to winners were made from Olive leaves. The famous heroes of these games were Homer, Atlas, Hercules/Gallen, etc., who are still remembered in our stories. Ancient Olympic Games came to a sudden end when the Roman emperor ‘Theodosius’ banned these games in the year 394 CE.

Question 37.
Discuss the Modern Olympic Games. [5]Answer:
Modern Olympic Games: The revival work of the Modern Olympic Games was undertaken by – Baron Pierre de Coubertin, nearly 1500 years after the last Ancient Olympic Games. Coubertin was born in an Italian family and settled in France. In the Conference of Physical Education on 25th November 1892, Coubertin first pronounced the ‘Restoration of Olympic Games’. He said that these games would enable to strengthening of amateur sports to develop everlasting qualities for modern education.

Later in June 1894, the International Conference of Amateur Sports in Paris passed the resolution to create the International Olympic Committee (IOC), to observe the conduct of the Modern Olympic Games. Coubertin planned to propose the site of the first Modern Olympic Games in 1900 in Pans. But the zeal of the delegates was so much that they insisted on the first games being held in 1896 in at Athens. Since then, these games were held after every four years. The honour of holding the Modern Olympic Games is entrusted to a city and not to a country or region. The choice of city for the celebration is with the IOC.
