Sample Question Paper Mathematics First Term (SA-1) Class X 2010-2011Time: 3 to 31/2 hoursM.M.: 80All questions are compulsory.The questions paper consists of 34 questions divided into four sections A, B, C and D. Section A comprises of 10 questions of 1 mark each, Section B comprises of 8 questions of 2 marks each, Section C comprises of 10 questions of 3 marks each and Section D comprises of 6 questions of 4 marks each.iii)          Question numbers 1 to 10 in Section A are multiple choice questions where you are to select one correct option out of the given four.iv)          There is no overall choice. How ever, internal choice has been provided in 1 question of two marks, 3 questions of three marks each and 2 questions of four marks each. You have to attempt only one of the alternatives in all such questions.v)            Use of calculators is not permitted.Section-AQuestion numbers 1 to 10 are of one mark each.1.
