Question

The weather department has predicted that a thunderstorm is likely to occur on a certain day. Suppose you have to go out on that day. Would you carry an umbrella? Explain.  [3 MARKS]
 


Solution

Each point: 1 Mark

1. No. We should not carry an umbrella in a thunderstorm.
2. During thunderstorms, which are accompanied with lightning, electric discharge from the clouds can travel through the metallic rod of the umbrella.
3. This may give an electric shock to the person who is carrying it. Hence, it is not safe to carry an umbrella during lightning.
