Q:

6 months day and 6 months night - Country Name?

 A) Nepal B) Tibet C) Norway D) Iceland

Explanation:

The case where there is 6 months day, and 6 months night could only happen on poles because The Earth is tilted on its axis.

The pole which is away (opposite direction of sun) from the Sun remains in complete darkness till it comes in front of the sun.

So we conclude that, countries at the poles have 6 months day, and 6 months night.

So countries close to these region have such cases like, Alaska, Antarctica, Norway etc.

Norway, the northernmost inhabited region of Europe, there is no sunset from approximately 19 April to 23 August. The extreme sites are the poles, where the sun can be continuously visible for half the year. The North Pole has midnight sun for 6 months from late March to late September.

Q:

In which atmospheric layer are the communication satellites located?

 A) Thermosphere B) Troposphere C) Mesosphere D) Stratosphere

Explanation:

In terms of the Earth's atmosphere, they occupy regions called the thermosphere and the exosphere. The layer through which a satellite orbits depends on the satellite's function and the kind of orbit it has.

The thermosphere is a region of very high temperature that extends from the top of the mesosphere at around 85 kilometers (53 miles) up to 640 kilometers (400 miles) above the Earth's surface. It is called the thermosphere because temperatures can reach up to 1,500 degrees Celsius (2,732 degrees Fahrenheit).

However, despite the high temperatures, the pressure is very low, so satellites don't suffer heat damage.

Explanation:

Most of the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) come primarily from burning fossil fuels (coal, hydrocarbon gas liquids, natural gas, and petroleum) for energy use and the major greenhouse gas is of course carbon dioxide (CO2) which comes from burning fossil fuels and land-use change.

But methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), which mostly come from agriculture and waste, are also significant GHGs and shouldn't be discounted.
