The first typewriter had its letters on the end of rods called "typebars. in the age of computers. We've been saying that for 124 years. clumsy device marketed as the "Type-Writer" in 1872. Give a word (containing more than 7 letters) that can be typed entirely using the top row of the „x‟ keyboard. sophisticated computers and word processors electronic technology can produce. Unlike „x‟. it has been speculated that this may have been a factor in the choice of keys for ease of demonstration.Page 3----------------------1) Rs 3700 2) Rs 4000 3) Rs 4700 4) Rs 5000 5) Rs 6000 Q5. Lets refer this as „x‟. This is also the reason why indents are provided on two of the alphabets. 130 years later. people are still using this awkward. It is the most common name used for the type of keyboard you use which is same as that shown here? b.Page 4----------------------c. The proper way of typing used by professional typists helps them achieve a very high degree of type-rate. If Ali ended up with Rs 1300 more cash than Murtuza at the end of day 5. Today the keyboard is a universal fixture even on the most advanced. Q3. However. The standard keyboard was not designed with ease of typing in mind. It is estimated to be 12 to 20 times more efficient than „x‟. although this is unlikely. Rather. „F‟ and „J‟ which is the position of the index finger while typing. What could have been the maximum possible increase in combined cash balance of Ali and Murtuza at the end if fifth day? ----------------------. there are some words that can be typed entirely using just the right hand or just the left hand . d. If Murtuza ended up with 20 more oil barrels than Ali at the end of day 5. But there it remains. the Dvorak keyboard was scientifically designed for increased speed and accuracy. it was designed to keep early typewriters from jamming. and more comfortable alternative: the Dvorak (pronounced "duh VOR ak") keyboard." The typebars hung in . It is awkward. what was the price of on oil barrel at the day 4? 1) Rs 90 2) Rs 100 3) Rs 110 4) Rs 120 5) Cannot be determined Q4. One such word is already present in this section. inefficient and confusing. Dvorak is great for beginning and experienced typists alike. It's the layout used by some of the world's fastest typists. Those keys made their first appearance on a rickety. a. What is „x‟. more efficient.4) Ali had 20 more oil barrels than Murtuza. easier.

Although not the first space telescope. it had its fair share of problems. If it is not re-boosted by a shuttle or other means. how many times would you jam your typewriter? C-3) THE HUBBLE TELESCOPE Does the name hubble ring any bells? The Hubble telescope is named in honour of the American astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble. a typebar would swing up to hit the paper from underneath. So. c) A telescope in space would have 360 degree viewing capability and be able to focus on objects which we can‟t be focused from the earth d) A telescope in space would not require any maintenance as there is no friction and chance of components getting damaged is negligible. the satellite‟s time period is the same as that of the earth. c) Force of gravity exerted by the earth causes the orbital decay. Within weeks of the launch of the telescope. Analysis of the flawed images showed that the cause of the problem was that the primary mirror had been ground to the wrong shape. with the exact date depending on how active the Sun is and its impact on the upper atmosphere. ----------------------. i. What was the need for a telescope in space? a) It is closer to the heavenly bodies and hence ensures a better image. d) Use spectacles for the telescope (insert a correcting lens in front of the telescope lens) Q3.e. Now. Though this telescope is very famous and gave phenomenal insight to the far reaches of space.a circle. A geosynchronous satellite is a satellite whose orbital track on the Earth repeats regularly over points on the Earth over time. the images returned showed that there was a serious problem with the optical system. b) The atmospheric disturbances would be greatly reduced in space. it will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere sometime between 2010 and 2032. What could the scientists do to rectify the lenses in the telescope? a) Replace the old lenses with new lenses. c) Making repairs in space would be a costly affair so launching a new satellite would make more sense. The best image quality obtained was drastically lower than expected. Q1. The roller which held the paper sat over this circle. If two typebars were near each other in the circle. and over time its orbit. if you used this current configuration of the keyboard to type this question. they would tend to clash into each other when typed in succession. Hubble orbits the Earth in the extremely tenuous upper atmosphere. and is well known as both a vital research tool and a public relations boon for astronomy. and when a key was pressed. the possible solution was to take the most common letter pairs and make sure their typebars hung at safe distances.Page 5----------------------Q2. Commands are uplinked and information down linked from the Hubble telescope through the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) which is geosynchronous. What could be the possible reason for the decay of orbit of the telescope? a) Earth‟s magnetic field interferes with the set path of the telescope b) The solar flares cause huge disturbances and often destroy vital orbit stabilising components in the telescope. b) Bring the satellite down to the earth and making necessary corrections. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was carried into orbit by the Space Shuttle Discovery in April 1990. the Hubble is one of the largest and most versatile. .

d) The drag in the higher reaches of the atmosphere causes the telescope to lose energy and thereby orbital decay." Second: "Oh sorry. once they are sure about it. It is very important to find out that particular bottle.. and the sum of their ages is the same as the number on that building over there. and invited four other couples: the Shobhanes. few of them developed a strange mark on their forehead.
