    • B.

      Crystallisation

    • C.

      Shovel

    • D.

      Spade

    Correct Answer
    A. Rusting
    Explanation
    Rusting is the process of iron forming rust when it reacts with oxygen and moisture in the air. This chemical reaction causes the iron to corrode and form a reddish-brown coating known as rust. Rusting occurs when the iron surface is exposed to water or humidity for a prolonged period of time, leading to the formation of iron oxide.

    • C.

      Ozone hole

    • D.

      Greenhouse

    Correct Answer
    B. Stratosphere
    Explanation
    The stratosphere acts as a shield absorbing ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The stratosphere is the second layer of the Earth's atmosphere, located above the troposphere. It contains a layer of ozone, which absorbs most of the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This absorption prevents the UV radiation from reaching the Earth's surface, protecting living organisms from its harmful effects. The stratosphere plays a crucial role in maintaining the Earth's climate and protecting life on the planet.

    In a market system, the central problems regarding how much and what to produce are solved through the coordination of economic activities brought about by ________ signals.

    • A.

      Supply

    • B.

      Dem and

    • C.

      Price

    • D.

      Stock Market

    Correct Answer
    C. Price
    Explanation
    In a market system, the central problems of how much and what to produce are solved through the coordination of economic activities brought about by price signals. Price signals act as a mechanism for balancing supply and demand in the market. When the price of a good or service increases, it signals that there is a higher demand for it, prompting producers to increase production to meet the demand. Conversely, when the price decreases, it indicates a lower demand, leading producers to reduce production. Therefore, price signals play a crucial role in determining the allocation of resources and guiding production decisions in a market economy.

    _________ says that the marginal product of a factor input initially rises with its employment level. But after reaching a certain level of employment, it starts falling.

    • A.

      Law of diminishing marginal product

    • B.

      Law of variable proportions

    • C.

      The Short Run

    • D.

      The Long Run

    Correct Answer
    B. Law of variable proportions
    Explanation
    The Law of Variable Proportions states that the marginal product of a factor input initially rises with its employment level, but after reaching a certain level of employment, it starts to fall. This means that as more units of a factor input, such as labor, are added to the production process, the increase in output will eventually become smaller and smaller. This occurs because other factors of production may become limiting or there may be inefficiencies in the production process.
