Q:

# A mixture of ethyl alcohol  and water can be seperated  by

 A) evaporation B) sublimation C) using a seperating funnel D) fractional distillation

Explanation:

Fractional distillation is the process of seperation of a mixture of two or more liquids into the different fractions, which differ fairly widely in their boiling points. The liquid with a lower boiling point will be vaporized first and hence would be the distillate (first fraction). Eg. Ethyl alcohol has a boiling point of $78.{1}^{0}C$ and water ${100}^{0}C$. When a mixture of these two liquids is heated, alcohol vaporizes first and is collected separately as the distillate.

Q:

Why are hydrocarbons insoluble in water?

We know that polar substances are soluble in polar solvents and non polar substances are soluble in non-polar solvents only. Here the hydrocarbons are non-polar molecular substances and water is a polar solvent. So water can't dissolve hydrocabons.

Hence, as hydrocarbons are non-polar substances, they are insoluble in water as it is a highly polar solvent.

Q:

Which of the following polysaccharides contains a modified monosaccharide?

 A) starch B) chitin C) glycogen D) cellulose

Explanation:

Many carbohydrates contain one or more modified monosaccharide units that have had one or more groups replaced or removed.

Chitin is one of many naturally occurring polymers. It is one of the most abundant natural materials in the world. Over time it is bio-degradable in the natural environment. Its breakdown may be catalyzed by enzymes called chitinases, secreted by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, and produced by some plants.

Chitin is composed of repeating units of N-acetylglucosamine, a nitrogen-containing form of glucose.

Q:

Which path through the carbon cycle is possible?

 A) Animal ----> Plant ----> Atmosphere B) Plant ----> Animal ----> Atmosphere C) Atmosphere ----> Plant ----> Animal D) Plant ----> Atmosphere -----> Animal

Explanation:

During daylight hours, plants capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and use it to make carbohydrates which is stored as starch in the plant. Animals feed on the plants and extract the carbohydrates through their digestive system. The carbohydrates, namely glucose, are used by the animals for production of ATP through cellular respiration.

Cellar respiration in the animals produces carbon dioxide as a waste product. The carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, from where it is again captured by plants and the cycle is repeated.

Hence, option B) Plant ----> Animal ----> Atmosphere is the path possible in carbon cycle.

Q:

Which type of molecules polar or nonpolar dissolves in water?

In general, polar solvents dissolve polar solutes, and nonpolar solvents dissolve nonpolar solutes.
As water molecules are polar, polar molecules dissolves in water.

Q:

When Ionic bonds are formed metallic atoms tend to

 A) share electrons B) gain electrons C) lose electrons D) None of above

Explanation:

Ionic bonding is the complete transfer of valence electron(s) between atoms. It is a type of chemical bond that generates two oppositely charged ions. In ionic bonds, the metal loses electrons to become a positively charged cation, whereas the nonmetal accepts those electrons to become a negatively charged anion.

Hence, when Ionic bonds are formed metallic atoms tend to lose electrons and become positive ions
