  1. between massive and neutral objects
  2. between charged objects
  3. a short range
  4. a long range

92. The spread in colours in a rainbow on sky is primarily due to

Directions:

The following eight (08) items consist of two statements, statement I and statement II. You are to examine these two statements carefully and select the answers to these items using the code given below:

Code:

  1. Both the statements are individually true and statements II is the correct explanation of statement I
  2. Both the statements are individually true but statements II is not the correct explanation of statement I
  3. Statement I is true but statement II is false
  4. Statement I is false but statement II is true

93. Statement I :
I. Insolation is greatest when the sun is directly overhead and the sun's rays are vertical.
Statement II :
II. When the sun is lower in the sky, the same amount of solar energy spreads over a greater area of ground surface, so insolation is lower

94. Statement I :
I. The Russian Revolution of 1917 inspired the Indian working class movement.
Statement II :
II. The Non-Cooperation Movement (1921-22) saw the involvement of the Indian working class.

95. Statement I :
I. Intellectual criteria which informed the reform movements are rationalism and religious universalism.
Statement II :
II. Social relevance was not judged by a rationalist critique.

96. Statement I :
I. Hard water does not give lather with soap.
Statement II :
II. Calcium and magnesium salts present in hard water form precipitate with soap.

97. Statement I :
I. Evapotranspiration helps in classifying the climatic types.
Statement II :
II. Only temperature affects evapotranspiration, hence it can be used for classifying the climatic types.

98. Statement I :
I. There is a large-scale fluctuation of oil flow from oil wells prior to earthquakes.
Statement II :
II. Tectonic stress accumulates to a certain level, the pore pressure within a deep oil bearing stratum reaches its breaking strength causing oil to sprout along the oil wells.

99. Statement I :
I. The potential energy that results from pushing water above mean sea level is transferred to kinetic energy that initiates the horizontal propagation of tsunami waves.
Statement II :
II. The vertical displacement of sea-water due to abrupt and jerky movements of fault blocks on sea-bed gives birth to tsunamis.

100. Statement I :
I. Indian economy has experienced slower growth rate during the years 2010-11 and 2011-12.
Statement II :
II. Indian economy has experienced weakening industrial growth during the period.
