# During thunderstorm you are travelling in a car. To protect yourself from the lightning you will have to

 A) remain in the car B) get out of the car and lie flat in the ground C) abandon the car and take shelter under a nearby tree D) touch the nearest electric pole

Answer:   A) remain in the car

Explanation:

The Whole car  - the body and inside - can be considered to be a hallow conductor. During the thunderstorm the body - i.e, the outside- gets a charge but there will be no charge inside. so the inside is safe.

Fish and other aquatic creatures canlive inside a deep frozen pond because

 A) fish are cold-blooded animals B) ice is a bad conductor of heat C) there will always be water just beneath the ice level D) they can adapt themselves to live in ice

Answer & Explanation Answer: C) there will always be water just beneath the ice level

Explanation:

Water has maximum density at $\inline \fn_jvn 4^{0}C$. So at this temperature it sinks down to bottom and stays here. If it cools further, it will become less dense and move up. So while the upper layers can cool enough to form ice, the bottom layers remain as water at $\inline \fn_jvn 4^{0}C$$\inline \fn_jvn \therefore$ (C) is correct.

At what temperature do the Fahrenheit and celcius scales give the same reading?

 A) 212 degrees B) 32 degreees C) -40 degreees D) 0 degreees

Explanation:

$\inline \fn_jvn F=C\times \frac{9}{5}+32$ We want the temperaature when F=C. So substituting C For F, we have C = $\inline \fn_jvn F=C\times \frac{9}{5}+32$

$\inline \fn_jvn \therefore$ C = -40. Thus when C = -40, we have C = F i.e, $\inline \fn_jvn -40^{0}F$

$\inline \fn_jvn \therefore$ (C) is coorrect. i.e,$\inline \fn_jvn -40^{0}C=-40^{0}F$
