Sol.The fabrication of the transistor is the process of creating the transistor that is used in electrical and electronics circuit. Transistors are made from very pure silicon or germanium, but certain other semiconductor materials can also be used.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Respiration is the process in which energy is released.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. The technique of collecting information about an object from a distance without making physical contact with it, is Remote Sensing.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol.The Curie (symbol Ci) is a non-SI unit of radioactivity.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Sun generates its energy by nuclear fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.Strong nuclear force is the strongest force. It is present inside the atom responsible for binding the protons and neutrons and also inside the proton and neutron in binding up the quarks.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.Heavy water is basically used as a moderator in nuclear reactors to slow down the neutrons so that they are captured and become effective to bring about the fission reaction.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol.An electric current is a flow of electric charge which is often carried by moving electrons.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol.Electric fuse is a protective device which protects electrical equipment in the circuit by breaking the circuit when there is a short circuit.It has low melting point.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. A transformer is used to bring voltage up or down in an AC electrical circuit.


In the last month i.e. in May daily we will provide you with a test of the previous years’ question papers, this will increase your confidence of solving the real exam and will make you familiar with the real-time exam.
