S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Calcium Oxalate is a chemical compound that forms envelope shaped crystals, known in plants as raphides. A major constituent of human kidney stones is calcium oxalate.
S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Mushroom is a fungus which is used as a vegetable for food.
S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Teeth and bones both are hard, white and heavy. Teeth are composed of calcium, phosphorous and other minerals. Bones contain calcium, phosphorus, sodium and other minerals, but mostly consist of the protein collagen.
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. If the velocity-time graph of a particle is represented by y = mt + c, then the particle is moving with constant acceleration.
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. If a particle is dropped from the top of a tower uniformly falls on ground at a distance which is equal to the height of tower then a parabolic path will be traversed by a particle because when the particle is dropped that point is called the point of projection and when it reaches the ground that point is called the point of impact. Now, if the two points is met with one another the curve emerges is parabolic in nature. Hence, we can say that the path followed by the particle is of parabolic trajectories.
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The velocity of the sphere at the bottom depends on height and acceleration due to gravity.Both these values are constant.Therefore the velocity at the bottom remains the same from whichever inclined plane the sphere is rolled.
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sodium Thiosulphate is used in photography as a fixer of positive and negative.
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. ‘Viscosity’ of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress. For liquids, it corresponds to the informal concept of ‘Thickness’. For example, Honey has a much higher viscosity than water.
S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. Mizoram with 91.5% literacy is the second most literate state in India after Kerala with 93.91% literacy
S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. The Siachen conflict, sometimes referred to as the Siachen War, is a military conflict between India and Pakistan over the disputed Siachen Glacier region in Kashmir.
