    It is a well-graded series based on the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) pattern initiated by the CBSE. Innovatively designed, each book in the series comprises sections on history, geography, and social and political life. The history section provides an understanding of the chronology of events. It enables students to relate the past with the present and equips them to learn from the past for the future. The geography section explains key geographical concepts, highlights the interdependence of various regions and countries within the broad structure of the natural environment and introduces the global distribution of economic resources. The section on social and political life familiarizes students with the social and political institutions that play a vital role in their lives and also acquaints them with the processes of government.
