Question 19.
Sahil, a Class X student, has just started understanding the basics of Internet and web technologies. He is a bit confused in between the terms “World Wide Web” and “Internet”. Help him in understanding both the terms with the help of suitable examples of each. [2]


Ruhani wants to edit some privacy settings of her browser. How can she accomplish her task?
World Wide Web (WWW) is a set of programs, standards and protocols that allows the multimedia and hypertext files to be created, displayed and linked on the Internet, e.g.,, etc.
Internet is a computer-based world wide communications network, which is composed of large number of smaller interconnected networks.e.g. Web, E-mails, Social media, etc. While Internet is a collection of computers or networking devices connected together. WWW is a collection of documents, linked via special links called hyperlinks. WWW forms a large part of Internet but is not the Internet.


She can accomplish her task by performing following steps:
Step 1 Open your web browser.
Step 2 Open browser settings.
Step 3 Look for Privacy and Security settings. If not directly found, click on Advanced settings.
Step 4 After reaching Privacy and Security settings, she can edit their setting.

Question 21.
What do you understand by degree and cardinality of a table? Give an example. [2]Answer:
Degree Number of columns/attributes/fields in a table are called table’s degree.
Cardinality Number of rows/tuples/records in a table are called table’s cardinality.
For example,

Bookno Name Author Price
B01 Good learning Xion Z. 220
B02 Smile easy T.Singh 350
B03 I to U S.Sandeep 250

Degree is 4 because it has 4 columns and cardinality is 3 because it has 3 rows.

result = my_series + 5

result = my_series + 5

Question 23.
What are the disadvantages of e-Waste recycling? [2]Answer:
Some disadvantages of e-Waste recycling are as follows

More Pollution and Energy Consumption It’s contradicting, but the reality is that recycling tons of garbage will require waste to be transported, sorted, cleaned and processed in separate factories, all of which need energy and may result in by-products that can pollute air, water or soil when more trucks are employed to pick up recyclable products.

Good Products are not Guaranteed Not all recycled items are of high quality or even safe to use. As previously mentioned, recycled products may contain toxic chemicals that were previously present with the original material.
