Q1. What is dew point?
ओसांक क्या है?
(a) The temperature at which an air becomes unsaturated/ वह तापमान जिस पर एक हवा असंतृप्त हो जाती है
(b) The temperature at which an air becomes cold from warm/ वह तापमान जिस पर हवा गर्म से ठंडी हो जाती है
(c) The temperature at which an air becomes saturated/ वह तापमान जिस पर एक हवा संतृप्त हो जाती है
(d) None of the above/ उपरोक्त में से कोई भी नहीं

Show Answer
Sol. The dew point is the temperature to which air must be cooled to become saturated with water vapor. When further cooled, the airborne water vapor will condense to form liquid water.

Q2. Radiation inversion occurs only on ____
विकिरण विलोमन केवल ____ पर होता है
(a) Air surface/ वायु सतह
(b) Ocean surface/ महासागर की सतह
(c) Land surface/ भूतल
(d) none of the above/ उपरोक्त में से कोई भी नहीं

Show Answer
Sol. A radiation inversion commonly occurs when the evening air is still and there are no clouds to trap heat. Surface temperature drops as longwave radiation emitted by the Earth escapes to space. Since a land surface radiates more heat than the air, ground is cooled more rapidly than the air at great heights during night time. Consequently the coldest air lies at the ground and is overlaid by warmer air.

Q3. The comparative ratio between humidity of certain area with the maximum limit is called
कुछ क्षेत्र की आर्द्रता के अधिकतम सीमा के साथ के तुलनात्मक अनुपात को क्या कहा जाता है?
(a) relative strength/ सापेक्ष क्षमता
(b) relative humidity/ सापेक्षिक आर्द्रता
(c) ultra humidity/ अति आर्द्रता
(d) mild humidity/ हल्की आर्द्रता

Show Answer
Sol.Relative humidity is the ratio of the current absolute humidity to the highest possible absolute humidity (which depends on the current air temperature). A reading of 100 percent relative humidity means that the air is totally saturated with water vapor and cannot hold any more, creating the possibility of rain.

Q4. Marbles are formed due to change in ______
__________ में परिवर्तन के कारण मार्बल का निर्माण होता है
(a) Clay/ चिकनी मिट्टी
(b) Limestones/ चूना पत्थर
(c) Sandstones/ बलुआ पत्थर
(d) Granite/ ग्रेनाइट

Show Answer
Sol.Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite (CaCO3) and usually contains other minerals, such as clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite.

Q5. Loess is a ________
लोएस एक ________ है
(a) Loss of rocks/ चट्टानों की क्षति
(b) Animal deposited sediments/ पशु निक्षिप्त अवसाद
(c) Water deposited sediments/ पानी निक्षिप्त अवसाद
(d) Wind deposited sediments/ हवा निक्षिप्त अवसाद

Show Answer
Sol. Loess is a clastic, predominantly silt-sized sediment that is formed by the accumulation of wind-blown dust.

Q6. At Barren Island, the only active volcano in India is situated in –
बैरेन द्वीप पर, भारत का एकमात्र सक्रिय ज्वालामुखी कहाँ स्थित है?
(a) Andaman Islands/ अंडमान द्वीप समूह
(b) Nicobar Islands/ निकोबार द्वीप समूह
(c) Lakshadweep/ लक्षद्वीप
(d) Minicoy/ मिनीकॉय

Show Answer
Sol. At Barren Island, the only active volcano in India is situated in Andaman Islands. Barren Island is situated in the Andaman Sea, and lies about 138 km (86 mi) northeast of the territory’s capital, Port Blair. It is the only active Volcano along the chain from Sumatra to Myanmar and also the only active volcano in India.

Q7. The depletion in Ozone layer is caused by ___________.
ओजोन परत में रिक्तिकरण___________ के कारण होती है।
(a) Nitrous oxide/ नाइट्रस ऑक्साइड
(b) Carbon dioxide/ कार्बन डाइऑक्साइड
(c) Chlorofluorocarbons/ क्लोरोफ्लोरोकार्बन
(d) Methane/ मीथेन

Show Answer
Sol. The ozone layer is a region of Earth’s stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The depletion in Ozone layer is caused by Chlorofluorocarbons.

Q8. Japan is called the ‘Land of the rising sun’ because-
जापान को ‘उगते सूरज की भूमि’ कहा जाता है क्योंकि-
(a) Sun rises there as soon as it sets / वहाँ जैसे ही सूर्यास्त होता है, सूर्य का उदय होता है
(b) Sun always remains in the eastern part of the sky throughout the day in Japan/ जापान में पूरे दिन सूर्य हमेशा आकाश के पूर्वी हिस्से में रहता है.
(c) Japan being the Eastern most country in the world, it has the earliest sunrise /जापान दुनिया का सबसे पूर्वी देश है, यहाँ सूर्योदय सबसे पहले होता है
(d) The rays of the sun get reflected from the waters of the sea and make the sunrise beautiful in Japan/ सूरज की किरणें समुद्र के पानी से प्रतिबिंबित होती हैं और जापान में सूर्योदय को सुंदर बनाती हैं.

Show Answer

Sol. Japan is called the ‘Land of the rising sun’ because Japan being the Eastern most country in the world, it has the earliest sunrise
