(c) Uranium
(d) Copper

Q7. There is a protocol signed to reduce production of CFC, known as -
(a) CFC Protocol
(b) IR Protocol
(c) Montreal Protocol
(d) UV Protocol

Q8. Malachite is an ore/mineral of -
(a) Lead
(b) Manganese
(c) Mercury
(d) Copper

Q9. Which among the following will be a negative ion?
(a) If it has more electrons than protons
(b) If it has more electrons than neutrons
(c) If it has more protons than electrons
(d) If it has more protons than neutrons

Q10. Why metals conduct electricity?
(a) Because of low melting point
(b) Because of high tensile strength
(c) Because of free electrons
(d) Because of high atomic density


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Saw dust is used to cover ice because it is poor conductor of heat. It did not let the ice melt quickly, as it does not transfer the heat of the surrounding to the ice.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. The washing machine works on the principle of Centrifugation.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Air is optically rarer than water, the ray of light bends away from the normal at the point of incidence when moving from water to air while it bends towards the normal while moving from air to water. It is clearly visible that the air bubble acts as a DIVERGING LENS (concave lens) in water.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. DC implies no changes in value. Frequencies of signals are defined by how many changes per time, e.g. 60 cycles per second. In case of DC with there are 0 changes per second. Hence the frequency of DC is zero.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. When a body is moving in a circular path, its average velocity when it complete one cycle in one second is zero.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Carnotite an important uranium ore.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.The Montreal Protocol is an international environmental agreement with universal ratification to protect the earth’s ozone layer by eliminating use of ozone depleting substances (ODS) like CFC, which would otherwise allow increased UV radiation to reach the earth.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Malachite is an ore/mineral of copper.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Negative ion which is created by an electron gain and it has more electrons than protons.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Metals conduct electricity because of free electrons.
