S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Diamond is a bad conductor of electricity but good conductor of heat. Electricity is conducted in a crystal by electrons that are relatively free. But in diamond, each carbon atom is covalently bonded with four other carbon atoms and there are no free electrons.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Weightlessness experienced while orbiting the earth in space ships is due to Zero gravity.

Sol. John Logie Baird was a Scottish engineer, innovator, one of the inventors of the mechanical television, demonstrating the first working television system on 26 January 1926.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. An electroscope is an early scientific instrument that is used to detect the presence and magnitude of electric charge on a body. It was the first electrical measuring instrument. The first electroscope, a pivoted needle called the versorium, was invented by British physician William Gilbert around 1600.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Wavelength of red colour is largest and violet colour has the shortest wavelength.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. On September 10, 1846, Elias Howe was granted a US patent for his invention of the sewing machine.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. The impulse-momentum theorem states that the change in momentum of an object equals the impulse applied to it.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. ISRO built India's first satellite known as Aryabhata.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. The cooling by a desert cooler is based on evaporative cooling. These coolers are also known as swamp coolers. 

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Most of the air conditioner uses compressed gas, which can cool the room or other places.
