#### Solution

(a)
(i) 1107
(ii) 1003

(c)
Two natural features seen in grid 0910 are:
(i) River (ii) Broken ground.

(d) The distance along the metalled road from the causeway East of Was to the distance stone 10 is 7.3 km.

(e)
(i) Universally accepted scale is Representative Fraction (RF).
(ii) The length of the given map is 10.5 km (scale 2 cm = 1 km).

(f)
(i) Six figured grid reference of a temple at Dhavli settlement is —111073.
(ii) Six figured grid reference of   277 is —177057.

(g) (i) Metalled road (ii) Cart track

(h) Two occupations are:
(i) Cultivation, (ii) Forestry.

(i) The distance between the contour lines tell gentle or steep slopes: (i) if the lines are close to each other it shows steep slope, (ii) if the contour lines are placed wide apart, it is a gentle slope.

(j
(i) 3r in 1103 shows a relative height of the embankment built on a dry tank.
(ii) Open scrub is not cultivable land but is used for sheep or goat rearing.

(k) The direction of Dattani and Dhavli from Chandela:
(i) Dattani is at West of Chandela.
(ii) Dhavli is at North West from Chandela.

(l) Man made features in grid square 1210 are:
(i) Settlement, (ii) Cart track.

(m) The area 1701 has a (kachha road) cart track, which can not be crossed by cars or motors during rainy season as the ground becomes wet and muddy, but in dry season when the ground is hard and dry motors can cross this area.
The map extract indicates that it is a dry summer season, rains have not come.
