## Solution

Ans.1.(b)

Exp. Manometer is an instrument that uses a column of liquid to measure pressure, commonly referred as pressure measuring instrument.

Ans.2.(b)

Exp. Mainly there are two types of devices that are used to measure solar radiations these are: (i) Pyrheliometer (ii) Pyranometer.

Ans.3.(b)

Exp. The shape of a drop of rain is constrained by the surface tension, which tries to give it the shape for which the surface area is minimum for the given volume. The spherical shape has the minimum surface area. That’s why rain drops acquire spherical shape.

Ans.4.(a)

Exp. Soap bubbles are large because when soap dissolved in water its surface tension is reduced. The pressure inside a soap bubble is more than atmospheric pressure.

Ans.5.(b)

Exp. Control rod constitutes a real-time control of fission Process which is crucial for both keeping the fusion chain reaction active and preventing it from accelerating beyond control. These rods are composed of chemical elements such as boron, silver, indium and cadmium.

Ans.6.(c)

Sol. The lens used in CD player emit ultraviolet laser beams which produce sound after reflecting through the bright surface of C.D.

Ans.7.(d)

Exp. Television signals cannot be received beyond a certain distance because the surface of the earth is curved, due to this the signals moves further without hitting the earth’s surface.

Ans.8.(d)

Exp. Human beings have stereoscopic vision (stereopsis) means having eyes at the front of their head. The two eyes are a few centimeters apart from each other. Due to this, two eyes see the same object from two slightly different angles and send two slightly different images to the brain. The brain combines these two images to build a three-dimensional picture of the object and we can judge the depth and distance of the object more accurately.

Ans.9.(b)

Exp. 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.

Ans.10.(c)

Exp. Velocity of sound in air is 330m/sec.
