Q10. German silver is an alloy of 

(a) gold and silver
(b) copper and silver
(c) copper, zinc and silver
(d) copper, zinc and nickel


S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Curd is made due to the chemical reaction between lactic acid bacteria and casein.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Homeostatic regulation includes sweating. It is the main process through which the body gets coolness.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Malaria is a mosquito borne disease of humans and other animals caused by Plasmodium protozoan. Severe disease is largely caused by Plasmodium falciparum whereas mild forms are due to P vivax, P oval and P malaria. 

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Influenza is caused by virus and all other three diseases are bacterial. Influenza, generally called flu, is an infectious disease caused by RNA viruses of family Orthomyxoviridae.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. O is the universal donor, but can obtain blood only from O so option (a) and (d) are not possible. Regarding (b), B can’t provide blood to A because of presence of antibodies against A antigen. So, (c) is the only condition of possible blood transfusion as AB is the universal recipient.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. The flavor of apples is mainly due to the ethanol (C2H5OH).

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. Nail varnish remover generally contains acetone (CH3COCH3 ).

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Marie Curie win her two different Noble prizes in two different categories i.e., Physics and Chemistry for the discovery of radium and polonium.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Chlorofluoro carbon (CF2Cl2 ) is also known as Freon. It is used as refrigerants in refrigerators and air conditions. It is also used as propellant in aerosols and foams.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. German silver varies in composition, the percentage of the three elements ranging approximately as follows: copper, from 50% to 61.6%; zinc, from 19% to 17.2%; nickel, from 30% to 21.1%. German silver is extensively used because of its hardness, toughness, and resistance to corrosion for articles such as tableware (commonly silver plated), marine fittings, and plumbing fixtures. Because of its high electrical resistance, it is used also in heating coils.
