    C. 1976
    Explanation
    In 1976, Television was separated from Akashvani (radio) as an independent organization. This suggests that prior to 1976, television and radio were likely under the same organization or department.

    The process by which energy is generated In’ the sun is the:

    • A.

      Fusion of Uranium

    • B.

      Fusion of Helium

    • C.

      Fusion of Hydrogen

    The process by which energy is generated in the sun is fusion of hydrogen. Fusion is the combining of two or more atomic nuclei to form a heavier nucleus, releasing a large amount of energy in the process. In the sun, the high temperature and pressure at its core allow hydrogen atoms to collide and fuse together, forming helium. This fusion process releases a tremendous amount of energy in the form of light and heat, which is what powers the sun and provides energy for life on Earth.

    • D.

      Solar Cells

    Correct Answer
    D. Solar Cells
    Explanation
    Solar cells are the source of electric energy in an artificial satellite. Solar cells, also known as photovoltaic cells, convert sunlight directly into electricity through the photovoltaic effect. They are made up of semiconducting materials that absorb photons from the sun and release electrons, generating an electric current. This makes solar cells an ideal choice for powering satellites as they can continuously generate electricity as long as they are exposed to sunlight.

    They Cyclone represent a position of the atmosphere in which:

    • A.

      Low pressure in the centre and high pressure around

    • B.

      There is high pressure in the centre and low pressure around

    • C.

      There is low pressure all around

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Low pressure in the centre and high pressure around
    Explanation
    A cyclone represents a position of the atmosphere in which there is low pressure in the center and high pressure around. This is because cyclones are characterized by a swirling motion of air that moves inwards towards the low-pressure center. As the air converges towards the center, it rises and creates a region of low pressure. Conversely, the air surrounding the center experiences higher pressure as it is pushed outwards. This pressure gradient between the center and the surrounding area is what causes the cyclonic circulation and associated weather patterns.

    The HCF of two numbers is 6 whose LCM is 36. If one of them is 12 the other is

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      18

    • C.

      224

    • D.

      36

    Correct Answer
    B. 18
    Explanation
    The highest common factor (HCF) of two numbers is the largest number that divides both numbers evenly. In this case, the HCF of the two numbers is 6. The least common multiple (LCM) of two numbers is the smallest number that is a multiple of both numbers. Here, the LCM is 36. Since the HCF is 6, one of the numbers must be a multiple of 6. Given that one number is 12, the other number must also be a multiple of 6. The only option that is a multiple of 6 is 18. Therefore, the other number is 18.

    Rate this question:

    The average of 7 numbers is 49. If 1 is added to the first number, 2 to the second number, 3 to the third number, and so on what is the new average? 

    • A.

      52

    • B.

      53

    • C.

      54

    • D.

      55

    Correct Answer
    B. 53
    Explanation
    By adding 1 to the first number, 2 to the second number, 3 to the third number, and so on, we are effectively increasing each number by an equal amount. Since the average is calculated by summing all the numbers and dividing by the total count, increasing each number by the same amount will result in an increase in the sum of the numbers. Therefore, the new average will be greater than the original average of 49. Among the given options, the closest value to the increased average would be 53.

    Lisa Lilly was the best runner in the eighth grade. She ran 100m in 40 s, 200m in 1 min and 10 s and 200 m over hurdles in one and a half min. How many more seconds it took her to run 200m over hurdles than it did to 200m dash? 

    • A.

      15s

    • B.

      18s

    • C.

      20s

    • D.

      16s

    Correct Answer
    B. 18s
    Explanation
    Lisa Lilly took 40 seconds to run 100m and 1 minute and 10 seconds to run 200m. To find out how many more seconds it took her to run 200m over hurdles than it did to 200m dash, we need to subtract the time it took her to run 200m dash from the time it took her to run 200m over hurdles.

    1 minute and 10 seconds is equal to 70 seconds. So, 70 - 40 = 30 seconds. However, the question asks for the difference in seconds, not the total time. Therefore, we subtract 30 seconds from 200 seconds (the time it took her to run 200m dash) to get 200 - 30 = 170 seconds.

    Finally, we subtract 170 seconds from 200 seconds (the time it took her to run 200m over hurdles) to get 200 - 170 = 30 seconds.

    Therefore, it took her 30 seconds more to run 200m over hurdles than it did to run 200m dash.

    A train 55m long crosses a bridge of 220m length in 10 s. How many seconds will it take to pass a man standing on the bridge?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      1.25

    • C.

      1.5

    • D.

      1.45

    Correct Answer
    A. 2
    Explanation
    The train takes 10 seconds to cross a bridge that is 220m long. Therefore, the speed of the train is 220m/10s = 22m/s. The train is 55m long, so it will take 55m/22m/s = 2 seconds to completely pass a man standing on the bridge.
