161)Television signal cannot be received ordinarily beyond a particular distance due to
weakness of the signal weak antenna
curvature of the earth absorption of signals in the air
Answer :

162)What is the use of a radar?
for receiving signals in a radio receiver for studying the movement of planets
detecting the position of aeroplanse for studying sunspots
Answer :

163)If you stand in a room, where two adjecent walls are covered with plane mirrors then total number of your images will be
2 infinite
3 5
Answer :

164)Assertion : The acceleration due to gravity increases with height above the earth's surface
Reason : Gravitational force increases with height
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason explains Assertion Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason does not explain Assertion
Assertion is correct but Reason is wrong Both Assertion and Reason are wrong
Answer :

165)Assertion : Objects appear weightless inside an orbiting spacecraft.
Reason : Objects in circular motion experience centripetal force
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason explains Assertion Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason does not explain Assertion
Assertion is correct but Reason is wrong Both Assertion and Reason are wrong
Answer :

166)Assertion : The earth revolves around the sun in ellliptical orbit
Reason: The sun always attracts the earth with the same force.
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason explains Assertion Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason does not explain Assertion
Assertion is correct but Reason is wrong Both Assertion and Reason are wrong
Answer :

167)Assertion : A steel needle can be made to float on water
Reason: When an object is immersed in water it experiences an upthrust.
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason explains Assertion Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason does not explain Assertion
Assertion is correct but Reason is wrong Both Assertion and the Reason are wrong
Answer :


168)Assertion : Apool of water looks ahallower than it actually is

Answer :

169)What type of mirror is used in the head lamps of a car?
Plane mirror Spherical concave mirror
Spherical convex mirror parabolic concave mirror
Answer :

170)The sun remain visible for some time after it actually sets below the horizon, due to
scattering of light atmospheric refraction of light
dispersion of light persistence of vision
Answer :

171)If there were no atomosphere, the length of the day would
increase decrease
remian unchanged be half
Answer :

172)The twinkling of stars can be partly attributed to
convection current in the atmosphere intermittent shining
atmospheric refraction unstable motion of the earth
Answer :

173)Planets do not twinkle because
they emit light continuously they are nearer to us and so their light does not passes through the atmosphere
they are nearer to us and so minor variations in their intensity are not noticeable they are luminous sources of light
Answer :

174)Rainbow is formed due to
refraction total internal reflection
dispersion dispersion and total internal relection
Answer :

175)When white light passes through a glass prism, it dispersed in colours because
different colours have different speeds in glass glass imparts colour to the light
of diffraction of light of interference of light
