### Objects can be seen clearly behind .............. material.

• A.

Opaque

• B.

Transparent

• C.

Translucent

• D.

Magnetic

B. Transparent
Explanation
Transparent materials allow light to pass through them, making objects behind them visible. This is in contrast to opaque materials that block light completely, making objects behind them invisible. Translucent materials, on the other hand, allow some light to pass through but scatter it, resulting in objects behind them appearing blurry or obscured. Magnetic materials, while they may have other properties, do not affect visibility and are not relevant to this question.

### The ability to attract materials is...

• A.

Non magnetic materials

• B.

Magnetic material

• C.

Magnetic field

• D.

Magnetic force

D. Magnetic force
Explanation
The ability to attract materials refers to the magnetic force. Magnetic force is the force exerted by a magnetic field on a magnetic material, causing it to be pulled towards the source of the magnetic field. This force is responsible for the attraction between magnets and certain materials, such as iron or steel. Non-magnetic materials do not possess this ability to be attracted by a magnetic force.

### When the light passes from air to water, it...

• A.

Splits into 7 spectrum colors

• B.

Changes its speed and direction

• C.

Reflect

• D.

B. Changes its speed and direction
Explanation
When light passes from air to water, it undergoes a phenomenon called refraction. Refraction causes the light to change its speed and direction as it transitions from one medium to another. This is due to the change in the optical density of the two mediums, causing the light waves to bend. Therefore, the correct answer is that the light changes its speed and direction.

### All of the following are magnetic materials except...

• A.

Copper

• B.

Steel

• C.

Iron

• D.

Cobalt

• E.

Nickel

A. Copper
Explanation
Copper is not a magnetic material because it has a very low magnetic susceptibility. Unlike steel, iron, cobalt, and nickel, copper does not have unpaired electrons in its atomic structure, which are responsible for generating a magnetic field. Therefore, copper does not exhibit magnetic properties and is not attracted to magnets.

### A set used to locate the four directions...

• A.

Electro-magnet

• B.

Compass

• C.

Dynamo

• D.

Prism

B. Compass
Explanation
A compass is a set used to locate the four directions. It is a navigational instrument that uses the Earth's magnetic field to determine direction. The needle in a compass aligns itself with the Earth's magnetic field, pointing towards the magnetic north pole. This allows individuals to determine the cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west, making it an essential tool for navigation and orientation.

### Winch is one of the uses of...

• A.

Dynamo

• B.

Electromagnet

• C.

Prism

• D.

Compass

B. Electromagnet
Explanation
An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by an electric current. It consists of a coil of wire wrapped around a core, usually made of iron or steel. When an electric current passes through the coil, it creates a magnetic field, which can be used to attract or repel objects made of magnetic materials, such as iron or steel. A winch is a device used to lift or pull heavy objects, and it often utilizes an electromagnet to generate the necessary magnetic force to perform these tasks. Therefore, electromagnet is the correct answer as it directly relates to the use of a winch.

### A freely suspended magnet takes........................... direction.

• A.

North-west

• B.

East-west

• C.

North-south

• D.

West-south

C. North-south
Explanation
A freely suspended magnet aligns itself in the north-south direction. This is because the Earth's magnetic field exerts a force on the magnet, causing it to align itself with the magnetic field lines. The north pole of the magnet is attracted to the Earth's magnetic south pole, and vice versa. Therefore, the correct answer is north-south.

### As we go from the two poles toward the center of the magnet, ............................

• A.

The attractive force increase

• B.

The magnetic force decrease

• C.

The magnetic force increase

• D.

No effect

B. The magnetic force decrease
Explanation
As we move from the two poles towards the center of the magnet, the magnetic force decreases. This is because the magnetic field lines converge towards the center of the magnet, causing the field strength to decrease. Therefore, the attractive force between the magnet and any other magnetic material also decreases as we move towards the center.

### Mixing the blue, red and green light produce white light.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When blue, red, and green lights are mixed together, they create white light. This phenomenon is known as additive color mixing, where the primary colors of light combine to form different colors. Blue, red, and green are the primary colors of light, and when they are combined in equal amounts, they result in white light. This is commonly seen in devices like computer screens and televisions, where pixels emit these three primary colors to create a full range of colors. Therefore, the statement "Mixing the blue, red, and green light produce white light" is true.

### A green apple is seen green through red glass sheet.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because when a green apple is seen through a red glass sheet, the red glass will filter out the green light, making the apple appear different in color. The red glass will make the apple appear reddish or brownish, depending on the shade of the glass. Therefore, the apple will not appear green when viewed through the red glass sheet.

### Shadow is a darkened area which is formed as a result of falling of light on a transparent materials.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The given statement is incorrect. Shadows are not formed as a result of falling light on transparent materials. Shadows are formed when an object blocks the path of light, causing an area of darkness to be cast on a surface behind the object. Transparent materials allow light to pass through them, so they do not create shadows. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

### Light can be separated into seven spectrum colors by using glass.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Light can be separated into seven spectrum colors by using a prism, not glass. When white light passes through a prism, it refracts and separates into its constituent colors, forming a spectrum of seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Glass alone does not have the same effect on light as a prism, so the statement is false.

### The space around the magnet in which the effect of magnetic force appears is called magnetic field.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The space around a magnet where the magnetic force can be detected or experienced is known as the magnetic field. This field is created by the magnet and extends into the surrounding space. It is through this magnetic field that the magnet can exert its influence on other magnetic objects or materials. Therefore, the statement that the space around the magnet in which the effect of magnetic force appears is called the magnetic field is true.

### A dynamo temporary magnet which is made by the effect of electricity.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement suggests that a dynamo temporary magnet is created by the effect of electricity. However, this is incorrect. A dynamo is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy, typically through the use of a rotating coil of wire within a magnetic field. The magnet in a dynamo is not temporary and is typically made of a permanent magnet material. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

### Magnetic force has electric effect and electric energy has magnetic effect.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because magnetic force and electric energy are closely related. According to Maxwell's equations, a changing electric field produces a magnetic field, and a changing magnetic field produces an electric field. This phenomenon is known as electromagnetic induction. Therefore, magnetic force can have an electric effect, and electric energy can have a magnetic effect.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### Dynamo is used to change magnetic energy into electric energy.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Dynamo is not used to change magnetic energy into electric energy. Instead, a dynamo is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. It does this through electromagnetic induction, where a rotating coil of wire generates an electric current in the presence of a magnetic field. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### Like poles attract each other.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "like poles attract each other" is incorrect. According to the laws of magnetism, like poles (poles with the same polarity) repel each other, while opposite poles attract. This means that if two magnets have their north poles facing each other, they will repel, and the same happens if their south poles face each other. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### The idea of the camera depends on light travel in straight lines.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The idea of the camera depends on light traveling in straight lines because the camera works by capturing light that reflects off objects and enters through the lens. The lens then focuses the light onto a sensor or film, creating an image. If light did not travel in straight lines, the image captured by the camera would be distorted and unclear. Therefore, the statement is true.
