resistance
(B) Large because conduction resistance is far less than the convective resistance

Answer:  (B)
Explanation: Limiting friction force between the block and the surface is 0.98N. But the
applied force is 0.8N which is less than the limiting friction force. Therefore the
friction force for the given case is 0.8N.

meaning to the given word: Amalgamate
(A) Merge (B) Split (C) Collect (D) Separate
Answer:  (B)
Exp:  Amalgamate means combine or unite to form one organization or structure. So
the best option here is split. Separate on the other hand, although a close
synonym, it is too general to be the best antonym in the given question while
Merge is the synonym; Collect is not related.

grief, and yet all students at some point in their lives suffer from losses
through death and parting.
Based on the above passage which topic would not be included in a unit on
bereavement?
(A) how to write a letter of condolence
(B) what emotional stages are passed through in the healing process
(C) what the leading causes of death are
(D) how to give support to a grieving friend
Answer:  (C)
Exp:  The given passage clearly deals with how to deal with bereavement and grief and
so after the tragedy occurs and not about precautions. Therefore, irrespective of
the causes of death, a school student rarely gets into details of causes—which is
beyond the scope of the context. Rest all are important in dealing with grief.
