    The high boiling point of water compared to hydrogen sulphide or hydrogen chloride is due to

    • A.

      Dipole insulation

    • B.

      Van der Waal’s attraction

    • C.

      Polar covalent bonding

    • D.

      Hydrogen bonding

    Correct Answer
    D. Hydrogen bonding
    Explanation
    Water has a high boiling point compared to hydrogen sulphide or hydrogen chloride because of hydrogen bonding. Hydrogen bonding occurs when a hydrogen atom in a molecule is attracted to a highly electronegative atom (such as oxygen or nitrogen) in a nearby molecule. In water, the oxygen atom is highly electronegative and forms hydrogen bonds with the hydrogen atoms of neighboring water molecules. These hydrogen bonds are stronger than the dipole-dipole interactions in hydrogen sulphide or hydrogen chloride, resulting in a higher boiling point for water.

    Which of the following determines the chemical properties of an element?

    • A.

      Number of electrons

    • B.

      Number of neutrons

    • C.

      Number of protons

    • D.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these
    Explanation
    The chemical properties of an element are determined by the number of electrons, number of neutrons, and number of protons present. The number of electrons determines the element's reactivity and ability to form chemical bonds. The number of protons determines the element's atomic number and identity. The number of neutrons affects the element's stability and isotopic composition. Therefore, all of these factors play a role in determining the chemical properties of an element.

    If a magnet has a third pole then the third poleis called……………………..

    • A.

      Defective pole

    • B.

      Consequent pole

    • C.

      Extra pole

    • D.

      Arbitrary pole

    Correct Answer
    B. Consequent pole
    Explanation
    A magnet with a third pole is referred to as a consequent pole. The term "consequent" indicates that this additional pole is a result or consequence of the magnet's structure or design. It is not a defect or an arbitrary addition, but rather a natural part of the magnet's composition.

    Which one of the following is ‘dissipative force’?

    • A.

      Electrostatic Force

    • B.

      Magnetic Force

    • C.

      Gravitational Force

    • D.

      Frictional Force

    Correct Answer
    D. Frictional Force
    Explanation
    Frictional force is considered a dissipative force because it acts in the opposite direction of motion, causing energy to be lost as heat. When two surfaces slide against each other, the frictional force converts the kinetic energy of the system into thermal energy, dissipating it from the system. This process leads to a decrease in the overall mechanical energy of the system, making friction a dissipative force.

      They will grow more luxurious

    • B.

      Large areas of mangrove will be submerged

    • C.

      Their role as carbon sinks will become more important

    • D.

      Both 1 and 3

    Correct Answer
    D. Both 1 and 3
    Explanation
    Global warming would have a dual impact on mangrove forests. Firstly, it would lead to a more favorable environment for their growth, causing them to become more luxurious. Secondly, mangroves play a crucial role as carbon sinks, absorbing and storing large amounts of carbon dioxide. With global warming exacerbating climate change, their role as carbon sinks will become even more important in mitigating the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the correct answer is both 1 and 3.

      Fructose

    • C.

      Maltose

    • D.

      Ribose

    Correct Answer
    B. Fructose

    The sweet taste of fruit is due to the presence of fructose. Fructose is a type of sugar found naturally in fruits, honey, and some vegetables. It is sweeter than other sugars like lactose, maltose, and ribose. When we consume fruits, the fructose molecules bind to taste receptors on our tongues, sending signals to our brain that interpret it as a sweet taste. Therefore, fructose is responsible for the sweet taste of fruit.
