From the previous post, we have started on our Mini Series on Tough MCQs.
Purpose is to enquire that students are exposed to tougher & tricky chemistry Multiple Choice Questions (Paper 1) that we have observed for the last 10 years.
How come i know them, you may asked? Cos i have been compiling and analyzing these questions for my students year-after-year, and sharing with them to ensure that they know how to avoid the common mistakes and traps that many other students have fallen into.
You know what – Usually this “tough” questions are Application Type Questions that just need a cool head and good chemistry concepts to get it right. It isnt that tough at all.
Let’s continue with more questions below:
Why is Sodium classified as Metal?
a) It is a pure substance
b) It is a good conductor of electricity
c) It exists as atoms, not molecules
d) It is very soft
Buckminsterfullerene was discovered in 1985 and it has a perfect sphere with formula C60. From this information, what can you deduce about it?
a) It contains only one element
b) It is a compound of 60 elements
c) It is a mixture of 60 atoms
d) It is a mixture of 60 elements
When mercury is heated, it forms mercury and oxygen,
Mercury oxide (s) –> mercury (l) + oxygen (g)
What can you deduce from the above information?
a) During the heating of mercury oxide, all three states of matter exist
b) Mercury oxide is a mixture
c) Mercury oxide is a silver solid
d) The composition of mercury oxide varies during heating
