Que (3): Which is the element that has the highest first ionization potential?

A. Oxygen
B. Hydrogen
C. Nitrogen
D. Neon

Answer: Nitrogen
Explanation: Nitrogen is a colorless odorless gas at normal temperature. It is normally attached to another nitrogen atom, making a nitrogen molecule (N2). This bond is very strong. That is why many explosives contain nitrogen. The bond is broken when the explosive is made.

C. Propance Number
D. nan

Answer: Octance Number
Explanation: It basically reflects the resistance for engine knock, higher the octane number the more compression is required for fuel ignition. Low octane number leads to pre-ignition and subsequently damage to engine.

Que (7): ‘Gobar gas’ contains mainly which gas?

A. Ethane
B. Methane
C. Propane
D. Isopropane

Answer: Methane
Explanation: Biogas is the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, primarily consisting of methane and carbon dioxide. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste.

Que (8): Which rocks is transformed into marble?

A. Charcoal
B. Limestone
C. Coal
D. Basalt rock

Answer: Limestone
Explanation: Some marble also forms by contact metamorphism when a hot magma body heats adjacent limestone or dolostone. Before metamorphism, the calcite in the limestone is often in the form of lithified fossil material and biological debris. During metamorphism, this calcite recrystallizes and the texture of the rock changes.

Que (9): How are Oxygen and ozone?

A. Isotopes
B. Allotropes
C. Orthotropes
D. Isentropes

Answer: Allotropes
Explanation: Allotropy or allotropism is the property of some chemical elements to exist in two or more different forms, in the same physical state, known as allotropes of the elements.

Que (10): Temporary hardness of water is due to the presence of which thing?

A. Sodium bicarbonate
B. Magnesium Bicarbonate
C. Potassium Bicarbonate
D. Cesuim Bicarbonate

Answer: Magnesium bicarbonate
Explanation: Calcium and magnesium dissolved in water are the two most common minerals that make water “hard.” The degree of hardness becomes greater as the calcium and magnesium content increases and is related to the concentration of multivalent cations dissolved in the water.

Que (11): Which oxyacid of halogen has maximum acidic nature?

D. H2CI5

Answer: HClO4
Explanation: Fluorine has a very small size and high electronegativity. Therefore, it forms only one oxoacid, HOF which is known as fluoric(I) acid or hypofluorous acid. The other elements of the halogen family form several oxoacids.

Que (12): Thermal decomposition of alkanes is known as which name?

A. Degrading
B. Regenerating
C. Cracking
D. Crackling

Answer: Cracking
Explanation: Cracking allows large hydrocarbon molecules to be broken down into smaller, more useful hydrocarbon molecules. Fractions containing large hydrocarbon molecules are heated to vaporise them. They are then: heated to 600-700°C.

Que (13): What is the characteristic odour of garlic?

A. A sulphur compound
B. a sulphate
C. a hydrolic compound
D. none of these

Answer: A sulphur compound Allium Sativum
Explanation: Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species in the onion genus, Allium. … Garlic is known to cause bad breath (halitosis) and body odor, described as a pungent “garlicky” smell to sweat. This is caused by allyl methyl sulfide (AMS).

Que (19): In colourful diamond, Why are different colours present?

A. Because of the cutting
B. Because of reflection

D. 2

Answer: 2
Explanation: By Hund’s rule, the electron configuration of carbon, which is 1s 2 2s 2 2p 2, is understood to correspond to the orbital

Que (21): In an atom the order of filling up of the orbitals is governed by which principle?

A. Dalton’s principle
B. Pauli Exclusion Principle
C. Heisenberg principle
D. Aufbau principle

Answer: Aufbau principle
Explanation: This diagram is also referred as Aufbau principle diagram and is used to remember the order of the filling of the orbitals. According to Aufbau rule: First electrons are filled in 1s orbital. Since each orbital can accommodate a maximum of only 2 electrons so 1s orbital contains 2 electrons.

A. Carbonating
B. Roasting
C. Oxidating
D. Hydration

Answer: Roasting
Explanation: Roasting is a process in metallurgy in which a sulfide ore is heated in air. The process may convert a metal sulfide to a metal oxide or to a free metal.

A. fFiltration
B. Sedimentation
C. Chlorination
D. Fractional distillation

Answer: Fractional distillation
Explanation: Fractional distillation is the process by which oil refineries separate crude oil into different, more useful hydrocarbon products based on their relative molecular weights in a distillation tower.
