Directions (1-10): In the passage given below there are blanks which are numbered from 1 to 10. They are to be filled with the options given below the passage against each of the respective numbers. Find out the appropriate word in each case which can most suitably complete the sentence without altering its meaning.

Q1. When an earthquake of magnitude 9.1 -------1------- off the coast of Sumatra in December 2004, it generated a tsunami that killed over 2.25 lakh people across countries. Videos and photographs of waves, up to 100 ft high in some areas, -------2-------- out everything in their path recall the scale of devastation. But what if one could see animated images of the tsunami waves travelling across the Indian Ocean to wreak havoc in countries. This is made --------3-------- by Science on a Sphere (SOS), a spherical display system developed by the U.S. scientific agency National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and installed at the Kerala State Science and Technology Museum (KSSTM) at PMG here to help people -------4------- earth-related scientific processes better. The SOS is an educational tool in which real-time planetary or space data are -------5-------- into visual images and shown on a suspended globe rather than a flat screen. Computers and projectors are used to project animated images of climate change, atmospheric storms, ocean temperature, earth’s geology, or space on the sphere. The illusion is of the Earth --------6--------- on its axis as one watches from space. Complex processes can thus be --------7--------- in a simple format, be it air traffic movement across the earth or how the outer space appears from the Milky Way. The SOS includes a 68-inch carbon fibre sphere suspended from the ceiling and held in place with an invisible suspension system. Four video projectors are --------8--------- at 90 degree increments around the sphere, which act as the screen. Each projector is --------9-------- for one quadrant of screen space and projects images seamlessly. So, unlike a photograph or even a video, this can help one visualize the famed Olympus Mons or the polar ice caps on Mars, understand how clouds form and move with the wind or how ---------10--------- the Indonesian region is to earthquakes. Using the SOS datasets, which are divided into categories and come from various organisations, a vast number of shows can be projected.
