Sol. The Surface tension of water provides the necessary wall tension for the formation of bubbles with soap water. The tendency to minimize that wall tension pulls the bubbles into spherical shape.

Sol. In absolute vacuum, there are no particles, no material medium, nothing. So, there is no reflection, refraction, diffraction, etc. That is why it travels the fastest in vacuum.

Sol. The SI unit for measuring an electric current is the ampere, which is the flow of electric charge across a surface at the rate of one coulomb per second. Electric current is measured using a device called an ammeter.

Sol. If the force applied on the object is in the direction opposite to the direction of motion, the speed of the object decreases.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. HF compounds has the strongest hydrogen bond.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. The chief ozone-depleting substances include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), carbon tetrachloride, hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and methyl chloroform.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Georges Claude invented Neon Lamp.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Lichens are widely used as environmental indicators or bio-indicators. Because of their sensitivity lichens are particularly significant biological indicators of air pollution.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. The study or science of mountains and their formation is called Orology.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Oxytocin is an hormone that is normally produced in the hypothalamus and stored in the posterior pituitary gland.
