Q.
An air pressure contour line joins locations in a region having the same atmospheric pressure. The following is an air pressure contour plot of a geographical region. Contour lines are shown at 0.05 bar intervals in this plot
.
If the possibility of a thunderstorm is given by how fast air pressure rises or drops over a region, which of the following regions is most likely to have a thunderstorm?
In general thunder storms are occurred in a region where suddenly air pressure changes (i.e.,) should rise (or) sudden fall of air pressure. From the given contour map in "R‟ region only more changes in air pressure. So, the possibility of a thunder storms in this region.
So option (C) is correct.
There are three boxes. One contains apples, another contains oranges and the last one contains both apples and oranges. All three are known to be incorrectly labelled. If you are permitted to open just one box and then pull out and inspect only one fruit, which box would you open to determine the contents of all three boxes?
The person who is opening the boxes, he knew that all 3 are marked wrong.
Suppose if 3 boxes are labelled as below.
If he inspected from Box(1), picked one fruit, found orange, then he don't know whether box contains oranges (or) both apples and oranges.
Similarly, if he picked one fruit from box(2), found apple then he don't know whether box contain apples (or) both apples and oranges.
But if he picked one fruit from box(3), i.e., labelled is “apples and oranges‟, if he found apple then he can decide compulsorily that box(3) contains apples and as he knew all boxes are labelled as incorrect, he can tell box(2) contains both apples and oranges, box(1) contain remaining oranges. So, he should open box labelled "Apples and Oranges‟ to determine contents of all the three boxes.
“We lived in a culture that denied any merit to literary works, considering them important only when they were handmaidens to something seemingly more urgent – namely ideology. This was a country where all gestures, even the most private, were interpreted in political terms.”The author‟s belief that ideology is not as important as literature is revealed by the word:

f(0) = 1, f (1) = 1.21, f ( 2 ) = 7.38, f(3) , f (4) , f (5) also + ve.
