a. 1°C
b. 2° C
c. 3° C
d. 4° C
Solution. The maximum density of water occurs at 4 °C because, at this temperature two opposing effects are in balance
Answer. d
5. Assertion (A): An elevator is going up at constant velocity. If a person in the lift drops a coin in the elevator, then the coin will fall with uniform velocity.


Reason(R): The elevator is not moving with any acceleration or retardation.

a. Both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A
b. Both A and R are individually true but R is not the correct explanation of A
c. A is true but R is false
d. A is false but R is true
Solution. As the motion of coin is with constant velocity acceleration/retardation would be zero
Answer. a
6. Statement I: Pulling a lawn roller is easier than pushing it.


Statement II: Pushing increases the apparent weight and hence the force of friction.

a. both the statements are individually true and statement II is the correct explanation of statement I
b. both the statements are individually true but statement II is not the correct explanation of statement I
c. statement I is true but statement II is false
d. statement I is false but statement II is true
Solution. While pulling a lawn roller, the vertical component of the force applied acts in upward direction which decreases the apparent weight of the lawn roller.
Wapparent = mg-FvWhile pushing the lawn roller, the vertical component of the force applied acts in downward direction eventually increasing the apparent weight of the lawn roller.
Wapparent = mg+Fv
Hence, it is easier to pull a lawn roller than to push.
Answer. a
7. Two identical piano wires have same fundamental frequency when kept under the same tension.  What will happen if tension of one of the wires is slightly increased and both the wires are made to vibrate simultaneously?
a. Noise
b. Beats
c. Resonance
d. Non-linear effects
Solution. In physics, resonance is the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than at others. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system’s resonant frequencies, or Â resonance frequencies.
Answer. c
8. Statement I: All liquids are conductors of electricity.


Statement II: Under the condition of low pressure and high voltage, liquid can be made conducting.

a. Both the statements are individually true and statement II is correct explanation of statement I
b. Both the statements are individually true but statement II is not correct explanation of statement I
c. Statement I is true but statement II is false
d. Statement I is false but statement II is true.
Solution. 1.    All liquids are not conductors of electricity, only liquids with free ions can conduct electricity.

2.    Electrical breakdown occurs within a gas (or mixture of gases, such as air) when the dielectric strength of the gas is exceeded. Regions of high electrical stress can cause nearby gas to partially ionize and begin conducting. This is done deliberately in low pressure discharges such as in fluorescent lights or in an electrostatic precipitator.

Answer. d

b. 4 only
c. 2 and 3 only
d. 2, 3 and 4
Solution. Transformers are basically used for increasing or decreasing voltage in transmission of power, while power remains the same.
Answer. c

a. Ice melts more easily under black wrap
b. Ice melts more easily under white wrap
c. No ice melts at all under the black wrap
d. No ice melts at all under the white wrap
Solution. Dark colors especially black absorbs most the radiation hence it is warmer white reflects all the colors and hence cooler.

15. The principle on which a simple interest of Rs 55 will be obtained after 9 months at the rate of 11/3 % per annum is.
a. Rs 1000
b. Rs 1500
c. Rs 2000
d. Rs 2500
Solution. Let the principal amount be Rs. P.

Rate of interest = 11/3 % and time = 9/12 years.

So, Simple interest = P × (11/300) × (9/12) = 55

P = (55 × 12 × 300) / (9 × 11) = Rs. 2000

Answer. c
16. A sum of money becomes 3 times in 5 years. In how many years will the same sum become 6 times at the same rate of simple interest?
a. 15 years
b. 12.5 years
c. 10 years
d. 7.5 years
Solution. Let principal amount be ₹ P and rate of interest be R per annum. Time of investment is 5 years.

So, first we need to find R such that

P × (1+5R) = 3 × P

⇨ R = 2/5 = 0.4 or 40%

Now, we need to find the number of years T such that,

⇨ P × (1 + 0.4T) = 6 × P

⇨ 1 + 0.4T = 6

⇨ T = 5/0.4 =  12.5

Answer. b
17. A milkman bought 15 kg of milk and mixed 3 kg of water in it. If the price per kg of the mixture becomes Rs 22, what is cost price of the milk per kg?
a. Rs 28.00
b. Rs 26.40
c. Rs 24.00
d. Rs 22.60
Solution. Cost of 1 kg of mixture = Rs. 22
Cost of (15 + 3) kg of mixture = (18 * Rs 22) = Rs. 396
As water is free so Rs. 396 is the actual cost of 15 kg of milk
so cost of 1 kg of milk = (396 /15) = Rs. 26.40
Answer. b
18. A person bought 8 quintals of rice for certain rupees. After a week, he sold 3 quintal of rice at 10% profit, 3 quintals of rice with neither profit nor loss and 2 quintals at 5% loss. In this transaction, what is the profit?
a. 10%
b. 20%
c. 2.5%
d. None of these
Solution. Let’s assume cost price for 1 Quintal = Rs.100
Total CP = Rs. 8 x 100 = Rs. 800
SP of first 3 kg = Rs. 3 x 110 = Rs. 330
SP of next 3 kg = Rs. 3 x 100 = Rs. 300
SP of 2 kg = Rs. 2 x 95 = Rs. 190
Total SP = Rs. 820
Profit = Rs. 20
Profit% = (20/800) * 100% = 2.5%
Answer. c
19. 76 ladies complete a job in 33 days. Due to some reason ladies did not join work and therefore it was completed in 44 days. The number of ladies who did not report for the work is.
a. 17
b. 18
c. 19
d. 20
Solution. Work requires 76 x 33 = 2508 man days
If N ladies did not report for work
Then (76 – N) x 44 = 2508
76 – N = 2508/44 = 57
N = 76 – 57 = 19
Answer. c
