Case Study Based Questions – Class 10 Maths

CBSE has recently added Case Study Based Questions or CSQ in Maths, Science and Social Science. You can visit this article to get to practice the official Sample Papers released by CBSE by clicking over here. Also do join out telegram channel to get all the updates and to participate in Quiz by clicking here.



What is Case Study Based Questions or CSQ?



Case Study Based or CSQ are typically questions in which the paragraph or passage is given and you simply have to answer them. This questions are not very tough to solve and are introduced so that you score better marks as schools and tuition are kept closed due to the COVID Pandemic. As a result, this had to be introduced. This is resulting to us, by having 34 MCQ which is really very good for scoring 100/100 in CBSE.



How to start preparing for CSQ’s?



To start preparing for CSQ you will need to learn all the chapters very thoroughly especially all the chapters of Geometry. CSQ from Maths can include a mixture of many chapters thus preparing all the concepts is must. They will surely be helpful. After completing all your syllabus you will need to practice a lot. So scroll below to find more than 15 Case study based question.



Is it Easy, Hard or Moderate?



This questions are very simple if practiced at least 20-25 questions than you can easily score lot of good marks or you can score full in Maths!! Practice all the questions below.



How much time to give to each CSQ?



You will be getting 4 Case Study Question’s each would be having 5 sub questions out of which you have to just do 4 questions. So find the shortest and most theoretical question as theoretical questions doesn’t required much solving and it will not even take 1 min to solve. Each question should not take more than 6 min, resulting to only 24 min for 16 questions which is enough. Solving as many CSQ helps in better understanding and reducing the time for each question.

Below are more than 15 examples of CSQ’s for Maths!

9th Case Study Based Question



  • SCALE FACTOR AND SIMILARITY SCALE FACTOR: A scale drawing of an object is the same shape as the object but a different size. The scale of a drawing is a comparison of the length used on a drawing to the length it represents. The scale is written as a ratio. SIMILAR FIGURES: The ratio of two corresponding sides in similar figures is called the scale factor. Hence, two shapes are Similar when one can become the other after a resize, flip, slide, or turn.
