Q.1) With regard to the Hyperloop transportation system, consider the following statements

1. The hyperloop concept is a brainchild of Tesla founder Elon Musk.

2. 
The hyperloop pods are expected to be driverless with estimated speeds of 1,000 km/h.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

A. 1 only

B. 2 only

C. Both 1 and 2

D. Neither 1 nor 2

Ans: (c) Both 1 and 2

Explanation: In hyperloop transportation, custom-designed capsules or pods are expected to zip smoothly through continuous steel tubes which are held at a partial vacuum.

The pod which sandwiches the passenger compartment between an air compressor upfront and a battery compartment in the rear is supported by air caster skis at the bottom.

These capsules are expected to be driverless with estimated speeds of 1,000 km/h. Linear induction motors that are placed along the tube control the speed of the pod. Electronically-assisted acceleration and braking determine the speed of the capsule.
