1. Given below are two statements:
Statement I: Sunlight is a pre-requisite for the formation of photochemical smog in urban areas.
Statement II : Photochemical smog is a recurring phenomenon in winter and summer seasons in urban areas of India.
In the light of the above statements, choose the most appropriate answer from the options given below.

A. Both Statement I and Statement II are true
B. Both Statement I and Statement II are false
C. Statement I is correct but Statement II is false
D. Statement I is incorrect but Statement II is true
नीचे दो कथन दिए गए हैं:
कथन I: शहरी क्षेत्रों में प्रकाश-रासायनिक स्मॉग के निर्माण के लिए सूर्य का प्रकाश एक पूर्व-आवश्यकता है।
कथन II: फोटोकैमिकल स्मॉग भारत के शहरी क्षेत्रों में सर्दी और गर्मी के मौसम में एक आवर्ती घटना है।
उपरोक्त कथनों के आलोक में नीचे दिए गए विकल्पों में से सर्वाधिक उपयुक्त उत्तर का चयन कीजिए।

  Answer 3
Explanation: Statement I is correct Photochemical smogs are created when sunlight interacts with nitrogen oxides and then reacts with hydrocarbons.
The second statement is false because When nitrogen oxides & volatile organic compounds (VOCs) combine with sunlight, photochemical smog is created, resulting in a brown cloud above cities. It happens more frequently in the summer because it’s when we get the most sunshine.

  Answer 1
Explanation: Due to a variety of factors, the global warming potential of a greenhouse gas molecule across time spans ranging from decades to 100 years might vary dramatically. When compared to carbon dioxide, some greenhouse gases have a shorter life span, for example methan 12 year and CO2: 20 to 200 years potential also vary.

7. Statement I: Chronic toxic effects result from single dose of very high toxic substance or continuous exposure of sub lethal dose.
Statement II: Acute toxic effects are long lasting and irreversible mainly caused due to prolonged exposure to toxins and survival rate is very low.

उपरोक्त कथनों के आलोक में नीचे दिए गए विकल्पों में से सही उत्तर का चयन करें:

  Answer 3
Explanation: Chronic toxicity, or the development of deleterious consequences after long-term exposure to a contaminant or other stressor, is a crucial part of aquatic toxicology.
Acute toxicity refers to the negative effects of a chemical that occur as a result of a single or many exposures during a short period of time. To be classified as acute toxicity, the adverse effects must occur within 14 days after the substance’s intake.


8. For wind power electricity generation which among the following type of rotors is most commonly used?

1. Multi blade rotor
2. Savonius rotor
3. Propeller rotor
4. Darrieus rotor

  Answer 3
Explanation: Types of wind mills:
> The savonius rotor: The savonius rotor is a very simple vertical axis device that is fully powered by wind thrust. The most basic piece of equipment is a vertically sliced drum. The two pieces are connected by a vertical shaft on opposite sides.
> Darrieus wind turbine: The Darrieus rotor is unique in that its operation is not readily apparent from its look. A vertical shaft is coupled to two or more flexible blades.
> Multi blade water pumping windmill: The blades are flat steel plates that work with the wind’s thrust to pump water. To ensure structural robustness, these are hinged to a metal ring, and the modest rotational speed adds to the dependability. The tail vane is commonly used to accomplish orientation.
> High-speed propeller-type wind turbines: Today’s horizontal axis wind turbines do not rely on thrust power to generate power. They are primarily determined by the aerodynamic forces that emerge when wind flows around an aerofoil blade. Windmills that rely on thrust are fundamentally inefficient. As a result, the aerofoil section is used to design all current wind turbine blades.


9. Assertion (A): Energy production from biomass has traditionally been considered carbon neutral.
Reason (R): Carbon dioxide emissions from combustion of biomass are sequestered by growing biomass.

1 Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is the correct explanation of (A).
2 Both (A) and (R) are true but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).
3 (A) is true but (R) is false.
4 (A) is false but (R) is true.
अभिकथन (A) : बायोमास से ऊर्जा उत्पादन को पारंपरिक रूप से कार्बन न्यूट्रल माना जाता है।
कारण (R) : बायोमास के दहन से कार्बन डाइऑक्साइड उत्सर्जन बढ़ते बायोमास द्वारा अलग किया जाता है।

Explanation: Because bioenergy is carbon — and climate — neutral as long as CO2 emissions from biofuel combustion are absorbed by growing biomass, carbon dioxide emissions from bioenergy production have historically been excluded from most emission inventories and impact on the environment evaluations. As a result, its climate impact has not been considered. A new technique for accounting for CO2 emissions from biomass burning in bioenergy systems has been proposed in a recent research.


10. Which of the following goals are related to millennium development goals?

A. Improving maternal health.
B. Controlling depletion of the ozone layer.
C. Improving the life of slum dwellers.
D. Creating smart city infrastructure.
E. Promoting gender equality and empowerment of women.

(2) (A), (C), (D) and (E) only.
(3) (A), (B), (C) and (E) only.
(4) (A), (B), (D) and (E) only.

  Answer 1
Explanation: Controlling depletion of ozone layer is related to montreal protocol, creating smart city infrastructure does not come under MDGs.
MDG targets in depth:
Goal 1: Reduce the proportion of the population living below the national poverty line by half between 1990 and 2015.
