Trees Question Answers

Q1. What are the games or human activities which use trees, or in which trees also ‘participate’? 

Ans. Trees are used for climbing. Swings are tied to trees. Children hide behind trees while playing hide and seek. Tree houses are also made using trees. We can enjoy picnics in the shade of trees. 

 

Q2. (i) “Trees are to make no shade in winter.” What does this mean? (Contrast this line with the line immediately before it.) 

Ans. In summers the trees provide shade while in winters they do not. This is so because they shed the leaves during fall months. As they do not have any leaves, thus the shade is not there. 

 

(ii) “Trees are for apples to grow on, or pears.” Do you agree that one purpose of a tree is to have fruit on it? Or do you think this line is humorous? 

Ans. Yes, this is a purpose of having trees. Trees bear fruits and they are grown for this purpose.
