Q1.Read the following passage carefully (5marks)

ASIATIC BLACK BEAR The commercial trade in bear parts especially the gall bladder, which is used in traditional Chinese medicine-poses a major threat to the Asiatic black bear. Besides poaching, there is loss of habitat and increased confrontation with man. Only a small proportion of the bear population in the country is within protected areas. Since  bears move to different habitats and elevations depending on the season, they come into conflict with humans. S. Sathyakumar, Head of the Department of Endangered Species at the Wildlife Institute of India, says that “bears become increasingly territorial during their breeding season in summer and tend to attack whatever resources are available”. Cases of mauling also tend to increase making human-bear conflict common, especially in mountainous regions. Most of the bears found in India spread across the hill states of Jammu and Kashmir, Uttrakhand, Himachal Pradesh and North East. A comprehensive count of Asiatic bears in India is not available but estimates put their number at anywhere between 6000 and 7000. However, their numbers can fall if poaching continues and the habitat shrinks further . On the basis of your reading of the above passage, complete the following sentences. Write the answers in your answer sheet against the correct blank numbers.

(1) Asiatic bear is usually hunted for ___________.

(2) Major threat is posed to this bear by_________.

(3) Cases of mauling tend to increase during their breeding season because ___________.
