12. Statement-1: Enthalpy changes are positive when Na2SO4. 10 H2O and salts like NaCl, KCl
etc. which do not form hydrates are dissolved in water. But enthalpy changes are
negative when anhydrous salts capable of forming hydrates are dissolved in

weights of hydrated and anhydrous salts. The substances with larger molecular
weights usually show positive enthalpy change on dissolution.

Linked Comprehension Type
This section contains 2 paragraphs C13 C18. Based upon the paragraph, 3 multiple choice
questions have to be answered. Each question has 4 choices (a), (b), (c) and (d), out of which
ONLY ONE is correct.

The electrons in a poly-electronic atom are filled one by one in order of increasing energy
level. The energy of subshells and orientation of orbitals depends upon the values of three
quantum numbers (i.e., n, l and m respectively) derived from Schrodinger wave equation.
However, the different orbitals of a subshell possess same energy level and are called
degenerate orbitals but their energy level changes in presence of magnetic field and the
orbitals are non-degenerate. A spectral line is noticed if an electron jumps from one level to
other. The paramagnetic nature of element is due to the presence of unpaired electron(s).

2+ 2+

Any nucleophilic substitution reaction proceeds via two processes:
(a) SN1 i.e. substitution nucleophilic unimolecular
(b) SN2 i.e. substitution nucleophilic bimolecular
The examples which serve for these are the solvolysis of alkyl halides. Let solvolysis of tert-
butyl bromide takes place via two conditions given below.
Reaction A: Here tert-butyl bromide was refluxed with ethanol containing small amount of
sodium ethoxide. The reaction was proceeding with a half life of only a few minutes and this
resulted in products (A) an ether and (B) C4H8. The rate for the reaction is given by the
Rate = k1 [tert-butyl bromide] + k2 [tert-butyl bromide] [C2H5O]
Reaction B: Here tert-butyl bromide was refluxed with a mixture of solvents containing 70%
ethanol and 30% water.

(a) 1 (b) 2
(c) 3 (d) reaction will not occur

(a) SN1 and SN2 respectively. (b) SN1 and E2 respectively.
(c) E1 and SN2 respectively. (d) E1 and SN1 respectively.

(c) E1 predominates (d) E2 predominates

Matrix Match Type
This section contains 2 questions. Each question contains statements given in two columns
which have to be matched. Statements (A), (B), (C), (D) in Column I have to be matched
with statements (1, 2, 3, 4) in Column II. One statement in first column has one or more than
one match with the statements in second column. The answers to these questions have to be
appropriately bubbled as illustrated in the following example.
If the correct matches are A 1,3, B 3, C 2,3 and D 2,4, then the correctly bubbled
4 4 matrix should be as follows:

Subjective or Numerical Type

The answer to these questions would lie between

0 to 9999. For any answer all four bubbles must be
filled, for example if you plan to answer as 16 then fill
0016 and if you plan to answer 0 then fill 0000 in the
grid provided in answer sheet. In case the answer is a
fraction, round it off to the nearest whole number. For
example, 725.3 is rounded off to 0725. Any incomplete
filling will be considered as incorrect filling.
Illustration: If you want to fill 2379 as your answer
then it will be filled as

1. How many mole of electrons are required to reduce 1.5 mole of nitro-benzene into aniline,
if current efficiency, in this experiment is 50%.

2. What is the pH of a mixture obtained by mixing 75 ml M/5 HCl and 25 ml M/5 NaOH
aqueous solution?
