Answers :

1) Answer: C

Polish the surfaces  and use of lubricant  reduce roughness and thus friction between the bodies reduce.

2) Answer: A

Formula for calculating KE = 1/2 * mv^2

Calculating the new kinetic energy (KE2):

KE2 = 1/2 * m * (1/2 * v1)^2

KE2 = 1/2 * m * 1/4 * v1^2

KE2 = 1/4 * 1/2* m*v1^2

3) Answer: B

Mercury thermometers are based on the principle that liquids expand when heated and contract when cooled. So, when the temperature increases, themercury expands and rises up the tube and when the temperature decreases it contracts and does the opposite.

4) Answer: C

1.44 MB is the storage size of floppy.

5) Answer: B

Memory, Processor and Input/output devices is managed by operating system.

6) Answer: B

The ethylene  gas used for artificial ripening of green fruit.

7) Answer: C

Biogas comprises primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes.

8) Answer: B

Rock salt is Sodium Chloride. It contains about 98% of Sodium Chloride and about 2% other trace minerals.

9) Answer: D

Radium (Ra), radioactive chemical element is the heaviest of the alkaline-earth metals  of the periodic table. Radium is a silvery white metal that does not occur free in nature.

10) Answer: C

Suspended particulate matter (SPM) are finely divided solids or liquids that may be dispersed through the air from combustion processes, industrial activities or natural sources.

Chemical oxygen demand (COD) is a measure of the capacity of water to consumeoxygen during the decomposition of organic matter and the oxidation of inorganic chemicals such as Ammonia and nitrite.
