Trains are the major source of transport in Mumbai. It also causes noise pollution which may have a negative impact on health such as hearing impairment, sleep deprivation and low concentration. These side effects have adverse impact on students' academic performance. For the present study, twenty volunteers were selected and they were divided into...

Toxicant effects of fenthion on growth, feeding, oxygen consumption and survival levels of Cyprinus carpio fingerlings were studied. Results showed that mortality increased with increase in concentrations. The maximum acceptable concentration for Fenthion to C. carpio was fixed between 0.193 and 0.096 mg/1.The exposed fish has slowed down opercula...

... Many studies have shown that learning in an online environment assisted by technology can increase activity, interest, and motivation in students (Moreno & Bartolomo, 2021). Inquiry learning often requires searching for information through the internet such as collecting background information, and further understanding a topic, so that research via the internet can also be understood as a practice using the world wide web, as a way of collecting information (Muralidharan et al., 2018). ...
... Behavioral changes are the most sensitive indication of potential toxic effects. The impact of different pesticides on the behavior of C. carpio has been studied by various workers (Chebbi and David, 2010;Singh et al., 2010;Leena, 2014). In this study, the behavioral and the swimming patterns of the fish in control group were normal, but in the experimental groups fish exhibited a number of behavioral changes, showed restlessness, erratic swimming, gulping of air at surface or jumping out of water, rapid opercular movements, loss of equilibrium, and hitting against the wall. ...
... Again, Muralidharan and Gaur (2018) cited Jordan's three categories of cheating at the school level as (i) Neutralized (cheating behaviour that does not harm others), (ii) Semantic differential (positive or negative cheating), and (iii) Other attitude (not classifiable). At the institutional level, according to Muralidharan and Gaur "cheating is an act of lying, deception, fraud, trickery, imposture, or imposition employed to create an unfair advantage often at the expense of others" (p. ...
... Thopan et al, 2003;). Histopathology of fishes are increasingly being used as indicators of environmental stress that helps in determining the historical exposure (G.D. Steniford, 2003) and also provides a data concerning changes in cellular or sub-cellular structure of an organ much earlier than any external notice (Leena Muralidharan, 2014). Heavy metals due to their potential toxicity induce biochemical changes in the organs of animals (Jalaludeen M.D. et al, 2012). ...
