Read the sentences and answer them according to the question.

  1. The terrestrial planets and the asteroid belt found between planets namely Mars and Jupiter are somewhat similar because both of them are composed mainly of rock and metal. The statement above logically conveys which of the following?

    1. Both the terrestrial planets and the asteroid belt existing between the planets Mars and Jupiter are composed of rock and metal
    2. Terrestrial planets are composed mainly of rock and metal
    3. Asteroid belt that is found between Mars and Jupiter is composed of rock and metal
    4. The terrestrial planets and the asteroid belt are one and the same
    5. There is no difference between the compositions of the terrestrial planets and the asteroid belt

    Correct answer: a

  2. The point at which the pressure from the solar wind is equivalent to the opposing pressure of the interstellar wind is termed as heliopause.
    From which of the following can the statement above be most properly inferred?

    1. There is no difference the pressure of the solar wind and the pressure of the interstellar wind
    2. Heliopause is the point where the solar wind pressure and the interstellar wind pressure which is the opposing force become equal
    3. Heliopause is the point where the solar pressure starts differing from the pressure of the interstellar wind
    4. Solar pressure starts opposing the pressure of the interstellar wind at the point of heliopause
    5. The pressure of the interstellar wind is equal to the pressure of the solar wind at all points

    Correct answer: b

  3. The atmospheres of the Venus and Mars deploy into the space gradually by the solar wind because these planets do not have magnetic fields. The argument above would be weakened if it were true that

    1. Venus and Mars do have magnetic fields to protect their atmospheres from the solar wind
    2. Since Venus and Mars do not have magnetic fields, the solar wind can cause damage to their atmospheres
    3. The atmospheres of the Venus and Mars deploy into the space gradually by the solar wind
    4. Magnetic field have the ability to protect the atmospheres of the planets from the solar wind damage
    5. Venus and Mars are those planets that fail to have magnetic fields

    Correct answer: a

  4. Photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors are used by the active solar techniques to bind the solar energy. The argument above assumes that

    1. Active solar techniques are those techniques that waste the solar energy
    2. Photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors have the ability to bind the solar energy
    3. Active solar techniques do not make use of solar techniques for harnessing the solar energy
    4. Solar thermal collectors are good collectors of solar energy
    5. Active solar techniques are not able to tie up the solar energy on its own

    Correct answer: b

  5. Earth’s water cycle gets completed when the air reaching a low temperature and high altitude condenses the water vapor into the clouds resulting into rainfall on the earth. Which of the following, if true, identifies the greatest flaw in the reasoning above?

    1. The air can reach at high altitude but the temperature is cannot be low at such high altitudes
    2. Water vapor condenses into clouds resulting into rain onto the Earth's surface
    3. Air that reaches a low temperature and high altitude area can condense the water vapor into the clouds
    4. When the air reaches at a high altitude and the temperature is low then it can condense the water vapor into clouds
    5. The water vapor that gets condensed in the clouds come down in the form of rain

    Correct answer: a
