Q:

Sound following a flash of lightning is called

 A) Stoning B) Bolting C) Thunder D) Cloud clash

Answer:   C) Thunder

Explanation:

The Sound Following the flash of lighting is because of Thunder.

Lightning is seen earlier than thunder because light travels much faster than sound.

The roar of thunder is the result of a shock wave produced when lightning super-heats the air through which it passes, causing that air to expand very rapidly. This rapid expansion of air creates a shock wave that travels outward at close to the speed of sound.

Q:

How many bottles of water is a gallon?

 A) 16 B) 8 C) 4 D) 2

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 8

Explanation:

The easiest way would measure it through half a liter water bottle. There are approximately 16.9 ounces(oz) of water in a 500ml water bottle.

Gallon is an imperial customary volume unit for the U.S.

As we have previously mentioned, the 16.9oz bottle is also known as 500ml in the metric system. According to U.S. standard, 1 gallon stands for 128 fluid oz.

Hence, Number of bottles in 1 gallon = 128/16.9 = 7.57 =~ 8.

Q:

Sound travels fastest in

 A) Vacuum B) Air C) Glass D) Water

Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Glass

Explanation:

Sound is a mechanical vibration and needs a medium for propagation. The higher the density of the medium, the faster the sound travels. So, sound cannot travel through vacuum.

As the sound travels faster in solids than liquids and gases, sound travels faster in the glass than Air and water.

Q:

In which layer is the pressure the highest?

 A) Ionosphere B) Stratosphere C) Troposphere D) Inner core

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Inner core

Explanation:

"Pressure" is the ratio of mass to area. So, for any given area, the one with more mass pressing on it will experience a higher pressure.

As you go more deeply into the atmosphere OR earth itself, you are putting more and more mass over you. For the same unit area therefore, the pressure, (mass/area) increases.

Hence, the lowest layer will always have the highest pressure i.e, inner core.

Q:

A periscope works by the principle of

 A) Total internal reflection B) Refraction C) Diffraction D) Reflection & Refraction

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Total internal reflection

Explanation:

A periscope is an optical instrument that uses a system of prisms, lenses, or mirrors to reflect images through a tube.

Light from a distant object strikes the top mirror and is then reflected at an angle of 90 degrees down the periscope tube. At the bottom of the periscope, the light strikes another mirror and is then reflected into the viewer’s eye.

Hence, A periscope works by the principle of Total internal reflection.

Q:

What is needed for steering control on a PWC?

Answer

PWC refers to Personal Water Crafts.

To control steering on a PWC, the most needed requirement is to have power in which will allows the one using it to control the engine for it to stop or for it to move. Without power, the person using it could be out of balance or fail to start the engine. This is the basic requirement because even though it is shut off or the engine is off, the PWC is still on and it could still move without proper knowledge of the engine.

Q:

Which of the following is the largest unit of information?

 A) 1 TB B) 1 GB C) 1 MB D) 1 KB

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1 TB

Explanation:

1 TB  >  1 GB  >  1 MB  >  1 KB

1 Tb (Tera Byte) = 1024 GB

1 GB (Giga Byte) = 1024 MB

1 MB (Mega Byte) = 1024 KB

1 KB (Kilo Byte) = 1024 Bytes

1 Byte = 8 Bit

Hence, largest unit of information is TB (Tera Byte) and smallest unit of information is Bit.

Q:

An object that has kinetic energy must be

 A) At an elevated position B) Falling C) At rest D) Moving

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Moving

Explanation:

In physics, we know that the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity.

Hence, An object that has kinetic energy must be in motion i.e, moving.
