Question 1

Question
How are warm-blooded animals different from cold-blooded ones?
Answer
  • They are aggressive in nature
  • They are found only in warm climates

  • Their internal body temperature is always high

Question 2

Question
Three large, identical ice cubes were wrapped in different materials. One was wrapped in an aluminium foil, the second in a woolen sweater and the third in a cotton shirt. All of them were kept on a wooden table in a room. Which one of them will melt first?
Answer
  • The ice cube wrapped in the woollen sweater will melt first because wool can store more heat.
  • The ice cube wrapped in the cotton shirt will melt first because cotton will let more air pass through.
  • The ice cube wrapped in the aluminium foil will melt first because it allows faster heat exchange.
  • All of them will melt at the same time.
  • Aluminium is a good conductor
  • Wool traps air which is a bad conductor
  • Most metals are good conductors

Question 9

Question
Galileo, in order to measure the speed of light, performed this simple experiment: He and his assistant each took a lantern that had a shutter in front of it, and stood on hilltops one mile apart in the night. Galileo was to flash his lantern, and the assistant was to open the shutter of his own lantern as soon as he saw the light from Galileo's lantern. Galileo had planned to measure the time taken for light to travel from one hill to the other and back, and calculate the speed of light using the formula, Speed = distance travelled / time taken. But he could not measure the speed of light using this method. The time taken for the light to travel would have been [blank_start]too little[blank_end] to have been measured by them.

Question 13

Question
Ripening of fruits on the plant can be quickened by making life stressful for the plant. This happens because stressing out a plant makes it concentrate more efforts on fruit production and ripening.

Which of the following is likely to cause stress in a plant by the SAME method, in a place having a wet climate?
Answer
  • cutting a few of the roots
  • plucking some of the leaves

Question 15

Question
The GREENHOUSE EFFECT [blank_start]raises[blank_end] the temperature of the planet.
