Question Section:

Que (76): The first law of thermodynamics is concerned with the conservation of which thing?
A. Velocity
B. Gravity
C. Speed
D. Energy

Answer: D. Energy,
A simple formulation is: “The total energy in a system remains constant, although it may be converted from one form to another.” Another common phrasing is that “energy can neither be created nor destroyed”.

Que (77): What is the proper order of seismic waves as they are received at seismograph station?
A. P > S > L
B. S > P > L
C. L > S > P
D. None of the above

Answer: A. P-wave > S-wave > L-wave,
P-wave is the primary and is the fastest among all.

Que (78): What is the relative permeability of a paramagnetic material?
A. Greater than unity
B. Lesser than unity
C. Equal to unity
D. Depends on various factors

Answer: A. Greater than unity,
For diamagnetic material it is less than 1, Paramagnetic substances are weakly attracted by the magnetic field when placed in an external magnetic field and hence for it the relative permeability is greater than unity.

Que (79): In Tyndall effect ________ wavelengths are transmitted more.
A. Longer
B. Shorter
C. Both
D. None

Answer: A. Longer,
Longer wavelengths are transmitted more and shorter ones scatters more.

Que (80): If a soap bubble is given negative charge then what happen to its radius?
A. Increases
B. Decreases
C. Stays the same
D. None of these

Answer: A. Increases,
The negative charge will distribute itself evenly over the surface of the bubble, and repulsion will happen as like charges repel each other hence it will expand.

Que (81): Which electrical circuit is used to get smooth DC output from a rectified circuit?
A. Parallel Circuit
B. Electric circuit
C. Open circuit
D. Rectifier circuit

Answer: D. Rectifier Circuit,
The electrical circuit used to get smooth dc output from a rectifier circuit is known as a RECTIFIER CIRCUIT. In a rectifier, a DIODE is used to get a dc current output.

Que (82): The absorption of radio waves by the atmosphere depends on:
A. Energy
B. Time
C. Frequency
D. Distance

Answer: C. Frequency.

Que (83): On planet Earth there is no centrifugal force at ____________.
A. At the center
B. At the poles
C. Where there is water
D. Where there is land

Answer: B. At the Poles.

Que (84): Which planet has the shortest year?
A. Mercury
B. Venus
C. Saturn
D. Mars

Answer: A. Mercury,
Mercury has the shorted year 88 earth days.

Que (85): How must be the The lines of force of a uniform magnetic field?
A. Parallel to each other
B. Perpendicular to each other
C. Intersecting each other
D. Following a measurement

Answer: A. Parallel to each other.

Que (86): Name of S. Chandrashekhar is associated with which subject?
A. Cosmology
B. Astrophysics
C. Astrology
D. Physics

Answer: D. Physics,
S. Chandrashekhar was a great scientist known for Chandrashekhar limit and shared 1983 Nobel prize for Physics.

Que (87): Which is the brightest planet?
A. Mars
B. Jupiter
C. Uranus
D. Venus

Answer: D. Venus,
Venus is always brighter than all other planets or stars as seen from Earth.

Que (88): Which planet is the watery planet?
A. Mars
B. Earth
C. Uranus
D. Venus

Answer: B. Earth.

Que (89): When a ray of light is going from one medium to another, what will happen to its frequency?
A. Frequency increases
B. Frequency decreases
C. Frequency remains the same
D. Frequency fluctuates

Answer: C. Frequency remains the same,
When light travels from one medium to another, the speed changes, as does the wavelength but the frequency does not change.

Que (90): What happens when a sudden fall in the barometric reading occurs?
A. Tide
B. Earthquake
C. Famine
D. Storm

Answer: D. Storm,
Barometer is used to measure the atmospheric pressure. Sudden fall indicates storm, if fall is gradual then it indicates rain.

Que (91): Heat given to an ideal gas under isothermal conditions is used in which work?
A. In doing internal work
B. In doing external work
C. Both
D. None of these

Answer: B. In doing external work.

Que (92): Relative humidity of the atmosphere is directly affected by _____
A. Rainfall
B. Change in atmospheric temperature
C. Unseasonal change
D. None of these

Answer: B. Change in atmospheric temperature.

Que (93): When will a hot body radiate maximum energy?
A. If its surface is made of metal
B. If the surface is a conductor
C. If its surface is black
D. None of these

Answer: C. If its surface is black,
Black body absorbs maximum heat and hence radiates maximum heat.

Que (94): Which will you put into pure water in order to pass electric current through it?
A. Electrode
B. Plastic
C. Salt
D. None of the above

Answer: C. Salt.

Que (95): “Green house effect” with respect to global warming refers to which effect?
A. Air pollution
B. Toxication
C. Warming effect
D. Disease spreading

Answer: Warming effect,
The greenhouse effect is the process by which radiation from a planet’s atmosphere warms the planet’s surface to a temperature above what it would be without this atmosphere.

Que (96): Power of lens is ________ proportional to focus?
A. Directly
B. Inversely
C. Exponential
D. Cube

Answer: B. Inversely.

A. 3
B. 4
C. 5
D. 6

Answer: C. 5.

Que (98): Which rays can pass through 20 cm thickness of steel?
A. Radio waves
B. X-rays
C. Infrared rays
D. Gamma rays

Answer: D. Gamma rays,
Gamma rays are of shortest wavelength and have high penetrating capacity.

Que (99): Old-written material, which cannot be read easily, can be read by using:
A. By X-rays
B. By gama rays
C. By infrared rays
D. None of these

A. Absolute humidity
B. No humidity at all
C. One forth humidity
D. Half the humidity

Answer: Absolute humidity,
Absolute humidity is a measure of the actual amount of water vapor (moisture) in the air.
