(a) Nitrogen/नाइट्रोजन
(b) Nitrogen Oxide/नाइट्रोजन ऑक्साइड
(c) Nitrous Oxide/नाइट्रस ऑक्साइड
(d) Nitrogen dioxide/नाइट्रोजन डाइऑक्साइड

Show Answer
Sol. Nitrous Oxide (N_2 O) is also known as laughing gas. It is a colourless gas with a sweet odour and taste. Inhalation leads to disorientation, euphoria, numberss, loss of coordination, dizziness and ultimately a loss of consciousness. It is also used as the anesthetic gas.


Q7. Easily soluble in water-
____________ पानी में आसानी से घुलनशील है-
(a) Carbon/कार्बन
(b) Nitrogen/नाइट्रोजन
(c) Ammonia/अमोनिया
(d) Iodine/आयोडीन

Show Answer

Sol. Ammonia being a polar molecule dissolves readily in water. This is due to the Hydrogen atoms of Ammonia which are bonded with a highly electronegative Nitrogen and the Hydrogen atoms of water molecules which are bonded with the highly electronegative Oxygen atom.

Q8. Which is the purest form of iron

Q9. An aqueous solution of copper sulphate is acidic in nature because the salt undergoes-

कॉपर सल्फेट का एक जलीय घोल प्रकृति में अम्लीय होता है क्योंकि नमक का –
(a) Dialysis/अपोहन होता है
(b) Electrolysis/विद्युतपघटन होता है
(c) Hydrolysis/जलीय संलयन होता है
(d) Photolysis/फोटोलैसिस होता है

Show Answer
Sol. Copper sulphate reacts with water which produces strong acid H_2 SO_4 and weak base Cu (OH) as there is a process of hydrolysis. So it is acidic in nature.
CuSO_4+2H_2 O→H_2 SO_4+Cu(OH)_2

Q10. Soda water-obtained by passing carbon dioxide in water is:

पानी में से कार्बन डाइऑक्साइड गुजरने से प्राप्त सोडावाटर क्या है:

(b) Basic in nature/प्रकृति में क्षार
(c) Acidic in nature/प्रकृति में अम्लीय
(d) Reducing agent/अपचायक कारक

Show Answer
Sol. The carbon dioxide (CO_2 ) gas dissolved in water can cause water to become acidic. When carbon dioxide is dissolved in the water, if forms a carbonic acid (H_2 CO_3) by reacting with water (H_2 O) and remains in dissolved state at high pressure. So, the soda water becomes acidic in nature.
