Q:

Long Sightedness means

 A) near images are blurry B) far images are blurry C) Both A & B D) None of the above

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) near images are blurry

Explanation:

Long sightedness is a common vision condition in which nearby objects are blurry.

In this situation, the person with this condition of the eye where the curvature of the cornea is flat or the axial length of the eyeball is short. When light enters the eye, it does not focus directly on the retina, but focuses beyond the retina. This causes near images to appear out of focus and blurred.

Long sightedness is also called hyperopia, and sometimes presbyopia.

Q:

Sources of geothermal power are

 A) water B) earth's heat C) Both A & B D) None of the above

Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Both A & B

Explanation:

Geothermal power plants are used in order to generate electricity by the use of geothermal energy (the Earth's internal thermal energy). They essentially work the same as a coal or nuclear power plant, the main difference being the heat source.

Geothermal power plants use hydrothermal resources that have both water (hydro) and heat (thermal). Geothermal power plants require high-temperature (300°F to 700°F) hydrothermal resources that come from either dry steam wells or from hot water wells.

Q:

what is the source of energy for the water cycle?

 A) Rain water B) Sun C) Clouds D) Animals

Explanation:

The water cycle is a term for the movement of water between the Earth's surface, the sky and underground. Water evaporates due to heat from the sun. Hence, the water cycle is driven primarily by the energy from the sun.

This solar energy drives the cycle by evaporating water from the oceans, lakes, rivers, and even the soil. Other water moves from plants to the atmosphere through the process of transpiration.

Q:

Velocitation is the tendency to

 A) be traveling at a speed that is faster than perceived B) be traveling at a speed that is slower than perceived C) Both A & B D) None of the above

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) be traveling at a speed that is faster than perceived

Explanation:

Velocitation is a phenomenon caused by driving for long periods at high speeds. A driver may experience velocitation when coming off of the highway; the change in speed makes him or her think that the car is going much slower than it actually is.

Velocitation is the tendency to be traveling at a speed that is faster than perceived.

Q:

Which has the lowest albedo?

 A) dark surfaces B) light surfaces C) Both A & B D) None of the above

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) dark surfaces

Explanation:

Albedo refers to a material's ability to reflect sunlight. Since 30% of the sun's energy is reflected by the entire earth, the earth has an average albedo of 0.30.

Generally, dark surfaces have a low albedo and light surfaces have a high albedo.
