1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below in your own words: 
What makes soil suitable for the growth of plants? The right mix of fine and coarse particles makes for good soil. It ensures that the soil holds enough water and also has an adequate amount of air. The presence of humus improves the structure of soil. In the case of sandy soils, humus improves the water-holding capacity. In clays, humus sticks to the fine particles to form larger clumps with greater air spaces. Also, since humus is decaying plant matter, it provides plants with many of the nutrients they need.
The mineral nutrients required by plants come from the parent rock the soil is made of and from humus. These nutrients are dissolved by the water present in the soil and taken up by the roots of plants.
Questions :
Q- Good soil for plants should have fine particles only. Is this true ? 
Ans- No, it is not true.
Q- Why should good soil have the right mix of fine and coarse particles ? 
Ans- Good soil should have the right mix of fine and coarse particles so that it holds the right amount of water and air.
Q- What is humus ?

Q- What does the rock from which the soil is made provide the plants ?

Our body needs regular periods of rest. This rest is provided by sleeping, generally at night, and we spend about one third of our life in this activity. When we sleep, our muscles are relaxed but our brain continues to work so that it can control our body functions which include breathing, heartbeat, etc. A newborn child sleeps practically the whole day and wakes up only to be fed. A full-grown adult needs at an average about eight hours of sleep per day. Lack of sleep makes a person feel exhausted and tired and at times makes him confused and irritated, and lack of sleep beyond sixty hours makes a person hear things which are not there and also see illusions. While sleeping, our condition constantly changes from deep sleep to light sleep. During the periods of light sleep, there are eye and body movements because the brain activity is continuing at a faster pace compared to deep sleep when the electrical discharge from the brain is slower. A person, who does not exercise regularly, consumes very little energy as a result of which he or she accumulates fat and becomes overweight. Exercise helps to make the muscles strong and ready for action.
Questions :
Q- How much time of our life do we spend in sleeping ? 
Ans- We spend about one third of our life in sleeping.
Q- How much time of sleep a full-grown adult needs per day ? 
Ans-  A full-grown adult needs at an average about eight hours of sleep per day.
Q- What are the effects of lack of sleep ?
Ans- Lack of sleep makes a person feel exhausted and tired, and at times makes him confused and irritated.
Q- Why are there eye and body movements during the period of light sleep ? 
Ans- During the periods of light sleep, there are eye and body movement because the brain activity is continuing at a faster pace.
