When zero of the polynomial is substituted in the polynomial, its value is

• A.

2

• B.

1

• C.

0

• D.

None

C. 0
Explanation
When zero is substituted into a polynomial, it means that we are replacing all the variables in the polynomial with zero. In this case, when we substitute zero into the polynomial, the value of the polynomial becomes zero. This is because any term in the polynomial that contains a variable multiplied by zero will also become zero. Therefore, the correct answer is 0.

Expression for area of a square represents --- in a graph

• A.

Straight line

• B.

Parabola

• C.

Both

• D.

None

B. Parabola
Explanation
The expression for the area of a square does not represent a straight line because the area of a square is not a linear function of its side length. It also does not represent both a straight line and a parabola because a parabola is a curve, not a straight line. Therefore, the correct answer is that the expression for the area of a square represents a parabola in a graph.

• A.

X^3-y^3

• B.

X^3+y^3

• C.

0

• D.

Xy

B. X^3+y^3
Explanation
The given expression is a product of two binomials. By using the distributive property, we can expand the expression to get x^3 - xy^2 + xy^2 - y^3. The middle terms cancel out, leaving us with x^3 - y^3. Therefore, the correct answer is x^3 + y^3.

Rate this question:

• 5.

Zero of the polynomial is always zero ?

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "zero of the polynomial is always zero" is false. A zero of a polynomial refers to a value that makes the polynomial equal to zero. However, not all polynomials have zero as a solution. Some polynomials may have complex roots or no real roots at all. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that the zero of a polynomial is always zero.

Rate this question:

• 6.

Factors of x^2-5x+6________________

x-3
x-2
Explanation
The given expression is a quadratic equation in the form of x^2-5x+6. To find the factors of this equation, we need to factorize it. We can rewrite the equation as (x-3)(x-2), which represents the product of two binomials. Therefore, the factors of x^2-5x+6 are (x-3) and (x-2).

Rate this question:

• 7.

Is (2x)^-1 a polynomial ?

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The expression (2x)^-1 is not a polynomial because a polynomial is an algebraic expression with one or more terms, where each term consists of a variable raised to a non-negative integer exponent. In this case, (2x)^-1 is equivalent to 1/(2x), which includes a fraction with a variable in the denominator. Therefore, it does not meet the criteria of a polynomial.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Degree of zero polynomial is ?

• A.

All the below

• B.

Undefined

• C.

-1

• D.

1

B. Undefined
Explanation
The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of the variable in the polynomial. A zero polynomial is a polynomial where all the coefficients are zero. Since there are no terms with non-zero coefficients in a zero polynomial, there is no highest power of the variable. Therefore, the degree of a zero polynomial is undefined.

Rate this question:

• 9.

Is -3 a zero of the polynomial 9- x2  ?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Since a zero of a polynomial is a value that makes the polynomial equal to zero, we can substitute -3 into the polynomial 9 - x^2. When we do this, we get 9 - (-3)^2 = 9 - 9 = 0. Therefore, -3 is indeed a zero of the polynomial, making the statement true.

Rate this question:

Cell(battery) needs to be charged when …..

• A.

Its discharged

• B.

Chemical inside it is exhausted

• C.

Both A and B

• D.

None

A. Its discharged
Explanation
The correct answer is "its discharged" because when a cell battery is discharged, it means that it has used up all of its stored energy and needs to be recharged. This is the most common reason for needing to charge a cell battery. The other option, "chemical inside it is exhausted," is not entirely accurate as the chemical reaction inside the battery is what produces the energy, and it is not necessarily completely exhausted when the battery needs to be charged.

Rate this question:

• 12.

Lightning is an example of

• A.

Charge transfer

• B.

Electrostatic charge

• C.

Electrostatic discharge

• D.

Both A and C options

D. Both A and C options
Explanation
Lightning is an example of both charge transfer and electrostatic discharge. Charge transfer refers to the movement of electric charge from one object to another, which occurs during a lightning strike. Electrostatic discharge, on the other hand, is the sudden flow of electricity between two objects with different electric potentials, which is also observed during a lightning strike. Therefore, both options A and C are correct.

Rate this question:

• 13.

Both ends of a battery can be connected together directly.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because connecting both ends of a battery directly would create a short circuit, which can be dangerous. A short circuit occurs when the positive and negative terminals of a battery are directly connected, causing a large current to flow rapidly. This can lead to overheating, damage to the battery, and potential hazards such as fire or explosion. Therefore, it is important to avoid connecting both ends of a battery directly.

Conductors have free electrons to move

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Conductors have free electrons to move because the outermost electrons of the atoms in a conductor are loosely bound and can easily move from one atom to another. This allows for the flow of electric current through the conductor.

Rate this question:

• 17.

Insulators have no free electrons to move

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Insulators are materials that do not conduct electricity well because they have a complete valence shell of electrons, which means they have no free electrons to move. This lack of free electrons prevents the flow of electric current through the material, making the statement "Insulators have no free electrons to move" true.

Respiration is an oxidation reaction

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Respiration is an oxidation reaction because it involves the breakdown of glucose molecules in the presence of oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water, and energy in the form of ATP. During this process, the glucose molecules are oxidized, meaning they lose electrons, while oxygen is reduced, meaning it gains electrons. This transfer of electrons is a characteristic of oxidation reactions. Therefore, it can be concluded that respiration is indeed an oxidation reaction.

In human beings exchange of gases happen in ?

• A.

Blood

• B.

Alveoli

• C.

Lungs

• D.

Heart

B. Alveoli
Explanation
The exchange of gases in human beings occurs in the alveoli. Alveoli are tiny air sacs located at the end of the bronchioles in the lungs. They are surrounded by capillaries, where oxygen from the inhaled air diffuses into the bloodstream, and carbon dioxide, a waste product, diffuses out of the bloodstream into the alveoli to be exhaled. This process is essential for the oxygenation of the blood and removal of carbon dioxide, allowing for proper respiration and the supply of oxygen to the body's cells.
