State any two laws by Newton which are applied in sports. (1.5 + 1.5 = 3)
The Newton laws which are applied in sports are as follows
(i) Newton’s First Law of Motion This law states that a body at rest will remain at rest and a body in motion will remain in motion at the same speed and in the same direction unless any external force is applied on it to change that state. This has application in game such as soccer as, when a soccer ball is kicked along the ground, it will continue to roll until the frictional force of the ground on the ball ultimately brings it to a stop.

(ii) Newton’s Second Law of Motion This law states that the acceleration of an object is oirectly proportional to the force producing it and inversely proportional to its mass. This has application in a game such as baseball in which, if a batter hits the ball with double the normal force, the acceleration of the ball will be doubled.

Question 34.
Briefly explain any five types of coordinative abilities. (1 × 5 = 5)
The coordinative abilities are those abilities of an individual which enable the individual to do various activities properly and efficiently.

The five types of coordinative abilities are as follows
(i) Coupling Ability This ability of the body is considered as capacity of an individual to perform better coordination of different parts of the body.
For example, while dribbling a basketball, the coordination of both the limbs is required.

(ii) Balance Ability It is the capability of an individual to maintain balance while the body is in motion. Even during disturbed balance regaining the lost balance, is known as balance ability.
For example, when standing or walking. It may be accompanied by feelings of giddiness or having a sensation of movement, spinning or floating.

(iii) Reaction Ability It is a skill to react quickly to a stimulus. For example, this is chaser in Kho-Kho runs quickly after kho is given.

(iv) Adaptation Ability It is the capability of a person to change the movement on the basis of predicted changes. For example, if the students are working on volleyball skills, a wheel chair bound student is allowed to serve the volleyball from our feet ahead of the serving line.

(v) Rhythm Ability It is to make out actions on a well-defined rhythm. Mainly this ability plays a vital role in the events. For example, synchronised swimming, floor exercises in gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics.

Question 35.
Describe the type of personalities. (5)
There are four basic types of personality that are referred as A, B, C and D.

There are 12 vitamins in the group of Vitamin B complex.
Five of these vitamins are discussed below

  1. Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) It helps to release energy from foods, promotes normal appetite and is important in maintaining proper nervous system function.
  2. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) It helps to release enery from .foods, promotes good vision and maintains a healthy skin. It also helps to convert the amino acid tryptophan (which makes up protein) into niacin.
  3. Vitamin B3 (Niacin) It works with other B-complex vitamins to metabolise food and provides energy for the body. Vitamin B3 is involved in energy production, normal enzyme function, digestion, promoting normal appetite, healthy skin and nerves.
  4. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) It is a key factor in protein and glucose metabolism as well as in a component of red blood cells which carry oxygen. Vitamin B is also involved in keeping the lymph nose and thymus gland healthy.
  5. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) It aids in the building of genetic material, production of normal red blood cells and maintenance of the nervous system.

Question 37.
Raghu works in a warehouse. He lifts heavy loads on his back and shoulders for many hours every day. Due to this he has developed an increase of his backward curve in his spine. Identify his postural deformity, write the causes and corrective measures. (1 + 2 + 2 = 5)
Raghu is suffering from the postural deformity known as kyphosis. It is a deformity of the spinal curvature. In kyphosis, there is increase or exaggeration of a backward curve or a decrease of a forward curve. It is also called as round upper back. People lifting heavy loads on their back and shoulders develop this type of deformity.

The cause of kyphosis are

  • Malnutrition or illnesses
  • Habit of bending forward while walking
  • Wearing light and shapeless clothes
  • Lack of balanced diet
  • Lifting heavy loads on back and shoulders.

The corrective measures of kyphosis are

  • Lying in supine (chest facing ceiling) position, draw knees upwards while feet are flat on the ground and raise arms upwards over the head. Hold this position for some time.
  • Lying in prone position, raise your head and trunk region and hold the position for sometime.
  • Sitting on a chair, hold hands from behind the back of the chair so that shoulders are pulled backwards and back is straight. Hold and release this position for 4 – 5 times.
