A
Right to die with dignity
B
Right to early childhood care and education
C
Right to information
D
Right to sexual privacy
Sociology Questions answers

Question 1 Explanation: 

The right to privacy is valued and cherished for it involves the most intimate decisions and choices. The individual is absolutely autonomous in her territory. She is free to err, resolve and experiment. She is informed and independent to make her own decisions. Privacy is freedom giving as well as empowering in this sense. The right to engage in sexual intercourse is an intrinsic part of the right to privacy. Privacy has to invariably contain the right to bodily integrity, self-determination and sexual autonomy.

  • In S. Puttaswamy (2017) Justice J. Chelameswar in clear terms held, "I do not think that anybody would like to be told by the state as to what they should eat or how they should dress or whom they should be associated with either in their personal, social or political life." Likewise, it seems to follow that individuals must be free from the interference of the state in matters of their sexual choices, or even in choosing their sexual partner.
  • The judgment in Suresh Kumar Koushal (2013) upholding the criminalisation of voluntary sexual intercourse between those of the same sex remains a serious blow to the right to sexual freedom.

Statement 1 is correct. Biochemical Oxygen Demand is the amount of dissolved oxygen needed (i. e., demanded) by aerobic micro-organisms to break down organic material present in a given water sample at certain temperature over a specific time period.

Statement 2 is incorrect. Higher the Biochemical Oxygen Demand, higher is the pollution level in the water.

This causes fish and other forms of oxygen dependent aquatic life to die.
