Sol. Correct sequence of spring balance method is given in option(a).
Sol. Main focuses of the objectives are only mental and intellectual growth of child not performance.
Sol. Active participation in learning is the main objective of role-play technique. It helps in better understanding and analysis of the related topic.
Sol. Option (b) is the most suitable answer to the given question.
Sol. NCF emphasizes the practical way of learning, so that the student may related the education to daily normal social and practical life.
