(c) Concept of quantization of energy
(d) Dual nature of electron

Q10. Which of the following muscular tissue is multinucleated?
(a) Smooth muscle
(b) Cardiac muscle
(c) Skeletal muscle
(d) Unstriated muscle 

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol.Battle of Panipat -1526
Battle of Khanwah -1527
Battle of Chanderi- 1528
Battle of  Ghaghara- 1529

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Polaj was the ideal and best type of land throughout the empire. This land was cultivated always and was never allowed to lie fallow.

S3. Ans.(d) 
Sol. In astronomy, a syzygy is a straight-line configuration of three or more celestial bodies in a gravitational system. When the Sun and Moon are in a straight line, it results in Spring Tide. These spring tides occur because the Sun and Moon's gravity tug on Earth together. Weaker, or neap, tides happen when the Sun, the Moon, and Earth form an L-shape.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. The most commonly used coffee beans are Arabica and Robusta is grown in the hills of Karnataka (Kodagu, Chikkamagaluru, and Hassan), Kerala (Malabar region) and Tamil Nadu (Nilgiris District, Yercaud and Kodaikanal).

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Strengthening of the capital market is not included as Inclusive growth in the Eleventh Five Year Plan.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. A Beveridge curve, or UV curve, is a graphical representation of the relationship between unemployment and the job vacancy rate, the number of unfilled jobs expressed as a proportion of the labour force.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. The intensity of the sound wave is directly proportional to the density of the medium. Since the density of CO2 is more than that of air, the same sound is heard more intensely in CO2.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Group 1A — The Alkali Metals.
Group 0 – The Noble Gases/Inert gases
The d-block elements are called transition metals

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. In 1913 Bohr proposed his quantized shell model of the atom to explain how electrons can have stable orbits around the nucleus. The energy of an electron depends on the size of the orbit and is lower for smaller orbits. Radiation can occur only when the electron jumps from one orbit to another.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Skeletal muscle cells are multinucleated from the fusion of muscle cells and smooth muscle cells are strictly mononucleated, and cardiac muscle cells are mononucleated in humans.
