S1.Ans. (d)
Sol. Ammonium chloride decomposes into ammonia and hydrogen chloride gas. NH4Cl → NH3 + HCl It produces fumes of ammonia and hydrochloric acid.

S2.Ans. (c)
Sol. The zinc serves as a sacrificial anode, so that it cathodically protects exposed steel.

S3.Ans. (c)
Sol. Chlorophyll is a green photosynthetic pigment found in plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. It contains Mg2+ ion as an important constituent.

S4.Ans. (c)
Sol. Green plants and most autotrophs use Photosynthetically active region of sunlight in the visible range 400nm to 700nm. Some bacteria like purple bacteria, Heliobacteria and others can harvest solar light by absorbing its near-infrared component for photosynthesis.

S5.Ans. (d)
Sol. Tomato is red in colour due to the presence of lycopene pigment found in the chromoplasts.

S6.Ans. (d)
Sol. Psammophytes is a plant that grows in shifting sands, primarily in deserts. They are marked by a number of adaptations which enable them to exist on wind-blown sands for e.g. Haloxylon persicum, Calligonum, Ammondendron, Eremosparton, Smirnowi.

S7.Ans. (b)
Sol. Insectivorous plants are plants that derive some or most of their nutrients from trapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods. They have adapted to grow in places where the soil is thin or poor in nutrients, especially nitrogen.

S8.Ans. (d)
Sol. CO2, H2O, chlorophyll and light are necessary for the process of photosynthesis which occurs in autotrophs.

S9.Ans. (a)
Sol. The inexhaustive source of energy of stars is the conversion of Hydrogen in Hellium. The major part of sun is made up of Hydrogen and Helium and it’s inner temperature is 107° K. In such a high temperature in the fusion of hydrogen Nucleas take place which results in the releases of huge energy.

S10.Ans. (d)
Sol. Ice is less dense in comparison to liquid water. Actually when water freezes, water (H2O) molecules form a crystalline structure by Hydrogen bonds. These bonds cause molecules to push apart lowering the density of water (H2O).
