S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. The (Ajanta) caves, famous for its murals, are the finest surviving examples of Indian art, particularly painting. Lepakshi temple also has the finest specimens of mural paintings of the Vijayanagar kings.

S2. Ans.(b)

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. All the noble gases are present in Earth's atmosphere and, except for helium and radon, their major commercial source is the air, from which they are obtained by liquefaction and fractional distillation.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sector share by working force : Primary (51%)> Tertiary (27%) > Secondary (22%)

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. The correct sequence of wavelengths of radiations is IR > Green > UV > Hard X-rays.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. A capacitor is a device for storing charge. It is usually made up of two plates separated by a thin insulating material known as the dielectric. One plate of the capacitor is positively charged, while the other has negative charge.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. The fluid mosaic model was first proposed by S.J. Singer and Garth L. Nicolson in 1972 to explain the structure of the plasma membrane.
