(a) Amazon basin/ ऐमज़ान बेसिन
(b) Indonesian islands/ इंडोनेशियाई द्वीप

Sol.Malaysia is the leading producer of natural rubber in the world. About 46% of the worlds rubber is produced in Malaysia .The rubber plantation was started in Malaysia in 1877.

Q6.Most of the weather phenomena take place in the
मौसम की अधिकांश घटनाएं _____________ में होती हैं..
(a)Ionosphere/ आयनमंडल
(b)Stratosphere/ समताप मण्डल
(c)Troposphere/ क्षोभ मंडल
(d)Mesosphere / मध्य मंडल

Show Answer
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.The troposphere is the lowest layer of Earth’s atmosphere. Most of the mass (about 75-80%) of the atmosphere is in the troposphere. Most types of clouds are found in the troposphere, and almost all weather occurs within this layer. The troposphere is by far the wettest layer of the atmosphere; all of the layers above contain very little moisture.

Q7.The radiation that heats earth’s atmosphere comes from the
विकिरण जो पृथ्वी के वायुमंडल को गर्म करती है वह कहाँ से आती है?
(a) sun / सूर्य
(b) earth/पृथ्वी
(c) ionosphere / आयनमंडल
(d) sun and earth/ सूर्य और पृथ्वी

Show Answer
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.Energy is transferred between the earth’s surface and the atmosphere via conduction, convection, and radiation.Due to the chemical composition of the earth’s atmosphere, most of the infrared radiation emitted by the warm surface never reaches space. Instead the radiation is reflected or absorbed by compounds known as greenhouse gasses. When these compounds absorb the infrared radiation from the surface, the atmosphere heats up. The energy reflected back toward the earth warms the surface further, causing the earth to emit more infrared radiation. This creates a cycle that keeps the atmosphere and the surface warm.

Q8.The velocity of winds is related to
हवाओं की गति ________से संबंधित है.
(a) revolution of the earth / पृथ्वी के परिक्रमण
(b) rotation of the earth/ पृथ्वी के घूर्णन
(c) temperature / तापमान
(d) pressure gradient / दाब प्रवणता

Show Answer

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol.Wind speed is caused by air moving from high pressure to low pressure, usually due to changes in temperature.Pressure gradient is a term to describe the difference in air pressure between two points in the atmosphere or on the surface of the Earth. It is vital to wind speed, because the greater the difference in pressure, the faster the wind flows (from the high to low pressure) to balance out the variation. The pressure gradient, when combined with the Coriolis effect and friction, also influences wind direction.Wind speed is now commonly measured with an anemometer.

Q9.Roaring Forties is/are:
गरजता चालीसा है/हैं:
(a) one of the major water currents of the Atlantic Ocean / अटलांटिक महासागर के प्रमुख जल धाराओं में से एक
(b) westerly winds/ पश्चिमी हवाएं
(c) the biggest and most dangerous river of the U.S.S.R. / यू.एस.एस.आर. की सबसे बड़ी और सबसे खतरनाक नदी
(d) the name given to the biggest waterfalls in the world / दुनिया में सबसे बड़े झरने के लिए दिया गया नाम

Show Answer

S9. Ans.(b)

Q10.Platinum, diamond, iron, silver, gold, copper, manganese, lead and zinc are found in ….rock.
प्लैटिनम , हीरा, लौह, चांदी, सोना, तांबा, मैंगनीज, सीसा और जस्ता ___________चट्टान में पाए जाते हैं.
(a) sedimentary/ अवसादी
(b) metamorphic / कायान्तरित चट्टान
(c) igneous / आग्नेय
(d) all of these / यह सभी

Show Answer

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol.Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition and subsequent cementation of that material at the Earth’s surface and within bodies of water. Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause mineral or organic particles (detritus) to settle in place.
