  1. An atomic clock is based on transitions in …………………………….
    5.None of these
    Answer – 2.Ceasium
    Explanation :
    A caesium standard or caesium atomic clock is a primary frequency standard in which electronic transitions between the two hyperfine ground states of caesium-133 atoms are used to control the output frequency. The first caesium clock was built by Louis Essen in 1955 at the National Physical Laboratory in the UK.

  2. A convex lens always form an image which is
    1.Virtual and inverted
    2.Real and inverted
    3.Real and erect
    4.Virtual and diminished
    5.None of these
    Answer – 4.Virtual and diminished
    Explanation :
    A convex mirror forms a virtual, diminished and upright image of an object.
    A concave lens always form an image which is Virtual and erect

  3. The Propagation of sound waves in a gas involves which of the following ?
    1.Isobaric compression and reflection
    2.Isothermal compression and rarefaction
    3.Adiabatic compression and rarefaction
    4.Isochoric compression and reflection
    5.None of these
    Answer – 3.Adiabatic compression and rarefaction
    Explanation :
    An adiabatic process is one that occurs without transfer of heat or matter between a thermodynamic system and its surroundings. In an adiabatic process, energy is transferred only as work
    Rarefaction is the reduction of an item’s density, the opposite of compression.

  4. Which of the following colour light has the highest velocity through vacuum ?
    4.All of these
    5.None of these
    Answer – 4.All of these
    Explanation :
    All the transverse electromagnetic waves in vacuum have the same speed

  5. Sun’s light appear to travel as………… beams towards earth
    5.None of these
    Answer – 1.Parallel
    Explanation : Sun’s light appear to travel as parallel beams towards earth 1 . Sun produces electromagnetic radiations through pp chain

  6. Which of the following does not contain silver ?
    1.Ruby Silver
    2.Horn Silver
    3.German Silver
    4.Nickel Silver
    5.Both 3 and 4
    Answer – 5.Both 3 and 4
    Explanation :
    The usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc.Nickel silver is named for its silvery appearance, but it contains no elemental silver unless plated.
