### Gujarat Board Class 6 Science Electricity and Circuits Textbook Questions and Answers

Question 1.
Fill in the blanks:
(a) A device that is used to break an electric circuit is called _______.
(b) An electric cell has _______ terminals.
(a) switch
(b) two

Question 2.
Mark āTrueā or āFalseā for the following statements:
(a) Electric current can flow through metals.
(b) Instead of metal wires, a jute string can be used to make a circuit.
(c) Electric current can pass through a sheet ofthermocol.
(a) True
(b) False
(c) False.

Question 3.
Explain why the bulb would not glow in the arrangement shown in given Fig.

The bulb would not glow in the arrangement shown in figure because the one end of tester/screw driver is made up of plastic which does not allow the electric current to flow through it.

Question 4.
Complete the drawing shown in given Fig. to indicate where the free ends of the two wires should be joined to make the bulb glow.

Question 5.
What is the purpose of using an electric switch? Name some electrical gadgets that have switches built into them.
Electric switch is used to make electric circuit open or closed for a particular appliance and hence with the help of a switch we can use an appliance according to our desire. The electrical gadgets that have built in switches are Electric Iron, AC, Microwave.

Question 6.
Would the bulb glow after completing the circuit shown in Q. 4 if instead of safety pin we use an eraser?
No, since eraser is an insulator so it does not allow the current to pass through it. Hence the bulb will not glow.

Question 7.
Would the bulb glow in the circuit shown in Fig.

Yes, the electric circuit is closed so the bulb will glow.

Question 8.
Using the āconduction testerā on an object it was found that the bulb begins to glow. Is that object a conductor or an insulator? Explain.
