CBSE Class 10 Science Term 1 Exam 2021-22 will have a set of questions based on case studies in the form of MCQs. The CBSE Class 10 Science Question Bank on Case Studies, provided in this article, can be very helpful to understand the new format of questions. This question bank is published by the CBSE Board itself that makes it a very reliable source for the board exam preparations. Each question has five sub-questions with each followed by four options and a correct answer. Students can easily download these sample questions in PDF format and refer to the same for exam preparations.
Note: Check the reduced CBSE Syllabus for Class 10 Science for Term 1 and then practice the case study questions accordingly for CBSE Class 10 Term 1 Exam 2021-22.
