Q1.The Magnitude of Earthquake is measured on the –
भूकंप के परिमाण को किस पर मापा जाता है –
(a) Barometer / बैरोमीटर
(b) Anemometer/ एनीमोमीटर
(c) Kelvin meter / केल्विन मीटर
(d) Richter scale / रिक्टर स्केल

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol.It was invented in 1935 by Charles F. Richter of the California Institute of Technology as a mathematical device to compare the size of earthquakes. The Richter scale is used to rate the magnitude of an earthquake, that is the amount of energy released during an earthquake.

Q2.Craters or calderas are –
क्रेटर या कैलडेरा क्या हैं ?
(a) Rift valley/ विभ्रंश घाटी
(b) Hollows created by removed of volcanic cones/ ज्वालामुखीय शंकुओं को हटाकर बनाया गया गड्ढा
(c) Sink holes/ सिंक छेद
(d) Pot holes/ पॉट छेद

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol.Calderas are some of the most spectacular features on Earth. They are large volcanic craters that form by two different methods: 1) an explosive volcanic eruption; or, 2) collapse of surface rock into an empty magma chamber.Collapse calderas form when a large magma chamber is emptied by a volcanic eruption or by subsurface magma movement. The unsupported rock that forms the roof of the magma chamber then collapses to form a large crater.

Q3.The lines joining the place of equal intensity of seismic waves are known as :
भूकंपीय तरंगों की समान तीव्रता के स्थान को जोड़ने वाली रेखाओं को किस रूप में जाना जाता हैं?
(a) Seisimice line / भूकम्पीय रेखा
(b) Isoseisimic line / सम भूकम्पीय रेखा
(c) Isogonal line / समदिकपाती रेखा
(d) Isogonic line/ समदिक्पातीय रेखा

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.An isoseismal (line) is a contour or line on a map bounding points of equal intensity for a particular earthquake.

Q4.The place of origin of an earthquake is called –
भूकंप की उत्पत्ति स्थान को _______कहा जाता है.
(a) Epicentre / उपरिकेंद्र
(b) Focus/ केन्द्र
(c) Seismal / भूकंपीय
(d) Amphidromic point/ एम्फिड्रोमिक बिंदु

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol.Earthquake waves start at he focus and travel outward in all directions. Earthquake waves do not originate at the epicenter.

Q5.The famous ‘Ring of fire’ which account for 68% of an earthquakes occurring in the earth is in the –
पृथ्वी पर होने वाले 68% भूकंप के लिए जिम्मेदार, प्रसिद्ध ‘रिंग ऑफ फायर’ कहाँ स्थित है –
(a) Atlantic ocean / अटलांटिक महासागर
(b) Indian ocean/ हिन्द महासागर
(c)Pacific ocean / प्रशांत महासागर
(d) Arctic ocean/ आर्कटिक महासागर

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol.The Ring of Fire is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur.

Q6. The National park ‘ Valley of Flowers’ lies in the state of _______.
राष्ट्रीय उद्यान ‘फूलों की घाटी’ _______ राज्य में स्थित है.
(a) Uttarakhand/ उत्तराखंड
(b) Kerala / केरल
(c) Jammu and Kashmir / जम्मू और कश्मीर
(d) Himachal Pradesh / हिमाचल प्रदेश

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol.Valley of Flowers is located in Chamoli district (near Badrinath) of Uttarakhand, approximately 300 km to the north of Rishikesh.At the meeting point of the Himalayan ranges, Zanskar and Western and Eastern Himalayas, the valley of flowers discovered by Mountaineer Frank S Smith in 1931 has been declared a world heritage site for its wild untamed blooms surrounded by white peaks.

Q7. India is a tropical country but has a monsoonal climate because _______.
भारत एक उष्णकटिबंधीय देश है लेकिन इसका मानसूनी वातावरण है क्योंकि _______.
(a) Its real extent is vast / इसकी वास्तविक सीमा विशाल है.
(b) It is surrounded by the sea/ यह समुद्र से घिरा हुआ है.
(c) The Himalayas provide the barrier effect / हिमालय अवरोध प्रभाव प्रदान करते हैं.
(d) Land and sea breeze create monsoons / भूमि और समुद्री हवा मानसून बनाते हैं.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.The whole of India has a tropical monsoonal climate, since the greater part of the country lies within the trophies, and the climate is influenced by the monsoons. The position of the mountain ranges and direction of the rain-bearing winds are the two main factors that determine the climate of India.The Himalayas play an important role in lending a sub-tropical touch to the climate of India. The lofty Himalaya Mountains form a barrier which effects the climate of India. It prevents the cold winds of north Asia from blowing into India, thus protecting it from severely cold winters. It also traps the Monsoon winds, forcing them to shed their moisture within the sub-continent.

Q8. The plateau rich in minerals in India is _________.
भारत में_________ खनिजों का समृद्ध पठार है.
