Solutions:

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Alpha particles made of 2 protons and 2 neutrons and they have low penetrating power.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Oxidation is loss of eletrons and addition of oxygen. It also involve addition of electronegative element.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Soda water was invented by Joseph Priestley.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol.Protons and neutrons have nearly the same mass while electrons are much less massive.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol.Evaporation can separate a solute from its solution.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The Geiger-Muller Counter also called a Geiger Counter, is an instrument used for detection and measurement ionizing radiation.

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. Solid camphor directly changes into camphor vapour and this process is called sublimation. The sublimation is the process in which some substances upon heating directly changes into vapour from and when cooled again directly turns into solid form.

S8 Ans.(c)
Sol. Mercury is the only common metal which is liquid at ordinary temperature.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. German Silver or Nickel silver is an alloy consisting 50% Copper, 35% Zinc and 15% Nickel. It doesn’t have silver.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Bullet-resistant glass is made or manufactured by using polycarbonate, thermoplastic and layers of laminated glass.
