(a) Skin/त्वचा
(b) Lungs/फेफड़े
(c) Liver/जिग
(d) Eyes/आंखें
Sol. Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.

हैमोग्लोबिन में शामिल धातु है:
(a) Copper/कॉपर
(b) Molybdenum/मोलिब्डेनम

Q10. A fan produces feeling of comfort during hot weather, because-
एक पंखा गर्म मौसम के दौरान आराम की भावना पैदा करता है, क्योंकि –
(a) Fan supplies cold air/फैन ठंडी हवा की आपूर्ति करता है
(b) Our perspiration evaporates rapidly/हमारा पसीना तेजी से वाष्पित होता है
(c) Our body radiates more heat/हमारा शरीर अधिक गर्मी प्रसारित करता है
(d) Conductivity of air increase/वायु के प्रवाहकत्त्व में वृद्धि होती है
Sol. In summer, a ceiling fan in the counterclockwise direction can help to cool your home by pushing cool air down. During the hot summer months, though this wind chill effect can work to your advantage by providing a breeze that can help evaporate the skin’s moisture quickly, creating a cool feeling.

Q11. In an earthen pitcher, the water remains cold due to the process of
मिटटी के घड़े में,किस प्रक्रिया की वजह से पानी ठंडा रहता है?
(a) Condensation /संक्षेपण
(b) Evaporation /वाष्पीकरण
(c) Sublimation /उर्ध्वपातन
(d) None of the above /उपरोक्त में से कोई भी नहीं
Sol. The water remains cold in an earthen pitcher because of a physical process is known as evaporation, when liquid changes to a gaseous (or vapour) state without boiling, it is known as evaporation. The earthen pitcher is made of mud and has many minute pores. It is through these pores that the water, placed inside the pitcher, oozes out. Now to evaporate, the water needs to absorb heat, which will change it to vapour. The only way the water oozing out of the pitchers can turn to vapour is by absorbing heat from the liquid within the pot. Due to this process of continuous absorption of heat from water inside the pot, in a few hours, this water becomes cool.

Q12. In the season of summer, we experience a humid heat when weather:
गर्मी के मौसम में,किस दौरान हम एक आर्द्र गर्मी का अनुभव करते हैं?
(a) Start of summer / गर्मी की शुरुआत
(b) Middle of summer / गर्मी के मध्य
(c) high evaporation / उच्च वाष्पीकरण
(d) extreme temperature / अधिकतम तापमान
Sol. In the season of summer, when the weather is humid, we experience humid heat.

Q13. Xeric condition refers to-
ज़ैरिक स्थिति का संदर्भ है
(a) low temperature/कम तापमान
(b) low humidity/कम नमी
(c) high evaporation/उच्च वाष्पीकरण
(d) extreme temperature/अधिकतम तापमान
Sol. Xeric condition refers to low humidity. It is a challenging place with poor sandy soil, the extreme condition of rain and drought. Xeric environment is place where water is meager.

Q14. Cyclotrons are used to accelerate:
साइक्लोट्रोंस का उपयोग किसे त्वरण प्रदान करने के लिए किया जाता है
(a) Neutrons / न्यूट्रॉन
(b) Protons/ प्रोटान
(c) Atoms / परमाणुओं
(d) Ions / आयनों
Sol. Cyclotron is a machine used to accelerate charged particle such as alpha particles, deuteron, proton etc. up to a very high speed.

Q15. Which one of the following can be used to confirm whether drinking water contains a gamma emitting isotope or not?
निम्नलिखित में से क्या यह पुष्टि करने के लिए उपयोग किया जा सकता है कि पीने के पानी में गामा उत्सर्जन आइसोटोप है या नहीं?
(a) Microscope/ माइक्रोस्कोप
(b) Lead plate /लीड प्लेट
(c) Scintillation counter / स्किनटीलेशनसरगर्मी काउंटर
(d) Spectrophotometer / स्पेक्ट्रोफोटोमीटर
Sol. Scintillation counter is an instrument for detecting ionizing radiation by using the excitation effect of incident radiation. Radiation on a scintillator material and detecting the resultant light pulses.
