(b)Folic acid / फोलिक एसिड
(c) Ratinol/रतिनोल
(d)Tocopherol / टोकोफेरोल
Sol. Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is found in all living cells within the body.Aside from being critical in manufacturing red blood cells, vitamin B5 also plays a part in producing sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands.

Q6. Which one of the following is the correct sequence of the given substances in the decreasing order of their densities?
निम्नलिखित में से कौन सा पदार्थ, उनके घनत्व के घटते क्रम में दिए गए पदार्थों का सही क्रम है.
(a) Steel > Mercury > Gold / स्टील> पारा > सोना
(b) Gold > Mercury > Steel / सोना> पारा > स्टील
(c) Steel > Gold > Mercury / स्टील > सोना> पारा
(d) Gold > Steel > Mercury / सोना> स्टील> पारा
Sol. Substance Density
(gram/cm3) (Kg./meter3)
Gold 19.3 19,300
Mercury 13.6 13,534
Steel 7.8 7,870
Thus, from the above table, we see the correct sequence of decreasing order of the substances Gold > Mercury > Steel.

Q7. When eno salt is poured into the water, bubbles forms, which is due to-
जब इनो नमक को पानी में डाला जाता है, तो बुलबुले उत्पन्न होते है, ऐसा किसके कारण होता है –
(a) O₂ gas/ O₂ गैस
(b) CO₂ gas/ CO₂ गैस
(c) CO gas / CO गैस
(d) H₂ gas / H₂ गैस
Sol. When eno salt is dissolved in water, the Carbon dioxide gas is produced which produce gas bubbles.

Q8. The chemical used as a ‘fixer’ in photography is-
फोटोग्राफी में एक ‘फिक्सर’ के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया जाने वाला रसायन है –
(a) Sodium sulphate/सोडियम सल्फ़ेट
(b) Sodium thiosulphate/सोडियम थियोसल्फ़ेट
(c) Ammonium persulphate/अमोनियम पर्सल्फ़ेट
(d) Borax/बोरेक्स
Sol. Sodium Thiosulphate is used in photography as a fixer of positive and negative.

Q9. Which one of the following is viscous?
निम्नलिखित में से कौन सा पदार्थ चिपचिपा है?

(b) Water/पानी
(c) Honey/शहद
(d) Gasoline/गैसोलीन
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.

Q10. Brass gets fade colour in air due to the presence of-

(c) Carbon dioxide / कार्बन डाइऑक्साइड
(d) Nitrogen / नाइट्रोजन
Sol. Hydrogen Sulphide is responsible for fading of Brass.

(b) Plain mirror/समतल दर्पण
(c) Convex mirror/उत्तल दर्पण
(d) None of these/इनमें से कोई नहीं
Sol. People use a concave mirror for shaving because when a man standing between the principal focus and pole of a concave mirror, he sees as enlarged, the erect and virtual image of his face.
