Describe the picture no. 10.2 given in the textbook.
- The picture shows a bench lying near the bus stand.
- The bench is put for travellers to relax while waiting for the bus.
- A boy who passes from near the bench spits on it and makes it dirty.
- By doing so, he is spoiling the public property.
- This shows his irresponsibility towards the public property.
- A responsible policeman sees this. He asks the boy to clean the bench.
- Public property is meant for our convenience. By damaging it, we are doing our loss.
Look at the picture no.
10.3 given in the textbook and answer the following questions.
(I) What would you say about spitting on the wail by the boy?
Dear friend, you should never spit on walls, roads or any other public property. You should only spit in the spit bin. By spitting here and there, you are spoiling the public property. Imagine if everyone starts spitting this way, our city will become so dirty that we won’t like to live in it.
(II) According to you what might have happened in the third picture?
When the boy with pink t-shirt might have told the boy who was spitting not to spit on the wall, he might have not liked it. So, the boy who spat might have argued and not liked the idea of being explained. So, he tried to move away without paying attention to the person guiding him not to damage public property.
(III) If your friend spoils the public place, what would you advise him?
I would explain him that public property is our property. It is made for our convenience and comfort. For example, roads, trees, benches, gardens, etc. all are meant for us. By spoiling them, we are causing discomfort to others and loss to the nation. Hence, should never spoil or damage public property and should try to maintain it.

Water tank and its water are the property of all the students.

Bus station is a public property.
If people do not co-operate in maintaining its neatness, then the dirt would cause several problems.
Mosquitoes, flies, rats, etc. may arise in the station.
This would result in diseases.
Also no one likes dirt and so people would have unpleasant travel.
