Fill in the blanks
The difference in elevation between successive contours is called contour interval.
Contours are imaginary lines joining places of same height above sea level.
In nucleated settlement permanent huts are shown in a cluster.
In scattered settlement the permanent huts are shown in dispersed manner.
When contours are drawn close together they show steep slope.
When contours are drawn far apart, they show gentle slope.

Toposheet G43S10 Study
Which is the largest settlement? Name and identify it.
Wahan is the largest settlement.
How are linear and scattered settlements shown? Explain by means of a drawing in your notebook.
What type of settlements are Wahan and Gulabaganj? Give a reason for your answer.
Wahan and Gulabganj are nucleated settlements, because the permanent huts are clustered or grouped together.
How are scattered settlements shown in the map? Name them.
Scattered settlements are shown as isolated or scattered huts in the map as shown below:
Boki Derli and SigarliKhera are scattered settlements.
Identify a gentle slope and steep slope by means of drawing contours in your notebook in brown colour.
Below contour diagram represents gentle slope and steep slope:
Why is Anadra an important town? State its favourable features (any 2).
Anadra is an important town because has police chowki, Dispensary and post telegraph office.
In what colour are contours shown on the map and what is the contour interval?
Contours are shown with brown colour on the map.
The difference between the value of any two successive contours is known as the contour interval.
