S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. The word “amphibian” is derived from the ancient Greek term amphibious, which means “both kinds of life”. The term was initially used as a general adjective for animals that could live on land or in water.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Baryllium Sulphate is less soluble in water due to High inflammable energy.
S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Radiocarbon dating is a radiometric dating method that uses the naturally occurring radioisotope carbon-14 (14C) to estimate the age of carbon-bearing materials up to about 58,000 to 62,000 years.
S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Cements harden because of hydration, chemical reactions that occur independently of the mixture’s water content; they can harden even underwater or when constantly exposed to wet weather. The chemical reaction that result when the anhydrous cement powder is mixed with water produces hydrates that are not water-soluble.
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. If a bond is broken, energy is absorbed and if a bond is formed, energy must have been released.
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Cane-sugar is carbohydrate and as this name implies, is composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. It is a source of extracting sugar.
