I. Richard Paul and Linda Elder state that “Thinking is not driven by answers but by questions”. Keeping this idea in mind, mathematics teacher of class X of Blue Marble School decided to develop interest and motivate students to become actively involved in the concept he asked some questions. The teacher drew a flow chart for real numbers family on the board as shown below. The chart for the set of real numerals includes all the types of numbers. Observe the chart carefully.

II. An object when thrown upwards reaches a certain height and then falls downwards. Whenever an object falls towards the earth, acceleration is involved. This acceleration is due to the earth’s gravitational force. Therefore, this acceleration is called the acceleration due to the gravitational force of the earth (or acceleration due to gravity). It is denoted by g. The unit of g is the same as that of acceleration, that is, m/s2. Its value is 9.8 m/s2 on Earth. When discussing the acceleration of gravity, it was mentioned that the value of g is dependent upon location. There are slight variations in the value of g on earth’s surface. The following acceleration of gravity values can be calculated for the various planets.
