SESSION 2019-20
Maximum Marks : 80 Class –VIII Time : 3 Hours
I. The question paper is divided into three sections :
SECTION A : Reading 15 MARKS
SECTION B : Writing 15 MARKS
SECTION C : Grammar 20 MARKS
SECTION D : Literature 30 MARKS
II. All questions are compulsory.
III. You may attempt any section at a time.
IV. All questions of that particular section must be attempted in the correct order.


1. Read the following passage and answer the questions given below: [11 Marks]
(i) Soil is your garden’s natural growing medium, so it’s vital for the health and successful growth of your
plants and crops that you keep it well maintained. Soil is basically rock that’s been ground down by the
effects of the weather over a long period of time and made fertile by decayed organic matter (derived
from dead insects and leaves). There are hundreds of different soil types, but they can broadly be
classified as sandy, loamy or clay, referring to their basic texture. It is the texture that affects the
drainage, aeration and nutrient content of the soil and you may have to take steps to improve on this in
certain types of soil.
(ii) Take a handful of soil and run a small amount between your forefinger and thumb. Although all soils
contain varying proportions of sand, silt and clay, you’ll readily be able to tell the difference between the
main types.
(iii) Sandy soil feels gritty when dry and even it’s wet particles will not stick together. Loams, on the other
hand, can be moulded in the hand when moist, but aren’t at all sticky and gritty and are fairly loose
when dry. Clay soil is sticky and smooth when wet, but becomes polished when rubbed and baked hard
when dry.
(iv) A loamy soil is a well-balanced amalgamation of sand, silt and clay, which combines excellent drainage
with sufficient moisture retention to assure good growing conditions for most plants. It’s fairly easy to
look after, although loamy soils do benefit from regular applications of well-rotted organic matter to
prevent getting tightly packed.
(v) The particle consistency of sandy soil doesn’t hold water well, with the result that plant foods are often
taken away by rain before they can do any good. Again, well-rotted organic matter can be added to bind
the soil particles together.
(vi) Clay soil is most difficult to work, usually becoming waterlogged, so they are virtually impossible to dig.
Artificial drainage will probably be the first step in improving the texture of the soil and various additives
will break down the structure to make use of its excellent food stocks.
(vii) There are various methods of improving your soil’s texture. Essentially this requires regular applications
of a well-rotted organic substance called humus, which is obtained from decayed plant and animal
matter (manure, compost, and seaweed, each provides ample sources).
(viii) The presence of chalk in soil can also affect the growth of plants: some prefer slightly acid (chalk-free)
soils, while others grow more successfully in alkaline, chalky soils. Most fruits and vegetables, however,
grow better in neutral soil.

(ix) Although benefiting the soil in some ways, compost, manure and fertilizers can actually add to its
acidity, as organisms break them down. Over-acid soils can be treated with applications of lime—either
hydrated (slaked) lime, or ground limestone (chalk). Of the two, ground limestone is your best choice.

(x) To apply lime, sprinkle it on the broken top soil and mix it lightly but don’t dig in; leave to wash down by
rain. Apply lime every other year if need be. An alkaline soil can be treated with manure, garden
compost or peat, well dug in.

(A) Answer the following questions by choosing the most appropriate option:

(i) We should keep soil well maintained as…………………

(a) it absorbs and retains water (b) it responds to the effects of weather
(c) it raises water table (d) it is the garden’s natural growing medium.

(ii) Soil is divided into various types on the basis of……………….

(a) colour (b) drainage (c) texture (d) aeration

(iii) Loamy soil is the best for plant growth because……………….

(a) it is a well-balanced mixture of sand, silt, and clay
(b) it has weak drainage and retention
(c) its texture responds slowly to decayed organic matter
(d) it gets tightly packed unless looked after well

(iv) Clay soils are the most difficult to work as…………….

(a) hey don’t hold water well
(b) hey usually become waterlogged
(c) he soil particles are not held together
(d) hey require natural drainage and additives

(v) Soil must be tested before growing fruits and vegetables because
(a) they need alkaline soil
(b) they prefer slightly acidic soil
(c) they grow better in neutral soil
(d) they flourish in over-acidic soil

(vi) ‘Consistency’ in para (v) means………………..

(a) in agreement with (b) having same opinion
(c) thickness (d) firmness

(B) Answer the following questions in brief:

(vii) Which soil is the best for plant growth? Why?
(viii) What do you know about clay soils?
(ix) Why should soil be tested before growing fruits and vegetables?
(x) How can texture of soil be improved?
(xi) Write the similar meaning to:
(a) Decomposed (para (i))
(b) Collection or accumulation (para (iv))
