Meso compounds have a plane of symmetry. In case of butan-2, 3-diol, gauche form is the most stable due to intramolecular H-bonding.
Question 3. For the given close-packed structure of a salt made of cation X and anion Y shown below (ions of only one face are shown for clarity), the packing fraction is approximately (packing fraction = packing efficiency / 100)
a = edge length of unit cell
2ry = a
2 (rx - ry) = √2a
2rx + a = √2a
2rx = a (√2a - 1)
rx = 0.207 a
Packing fraction = 3 × vol. of x + vol. of y / vol. of unit cell
Question 4. The calculated spin only magnetic moments of [Cr(NH3)6]3+ and [CuF6]3– in BM, respectively, are (Atomic numbers of Cr and Cu are 24 and 29, respectively).
[Cr(NH3)6]3+ = Cr3+
Cr3+ = 3d3 4s0
It has 3 unpaired electrons
μ = n √(n+2) BM
μ = 3 √(3+2) BM
μ = 3.87 BM
[CuF6]3- = Cu+3
Cu+3 = 3d8 4s0
It has 2 unpaired electrons
μ = 2 √(2+2) BM
= 2.84 BM

Question Stem for Questions 9 and 10.
The boiling point of water in a 0.1 molal silver nitrate solution (solution A) is x ºC. To this solution A, an equal volume of 0.1 molal aqueous barium chloride solution is added to make a new solution B. The difference in the boiling points of water in the two solutions A and B is y × 10-2 ºC.
(Assume: Densities of the solutions A and B are the same as that of water and the soluble salts dissociate completely. Use: Molal elevation constant (Ebullioscopic constant), Kb = 0.5 K kg mol-1; Boiling point of pure water as 100ºC.)
Question 9. The value of x is ______.
Question 10. The value of |y| is ______.
Given molality of AgNO3 solution is 0.1 molal (solution-A)
ΔTb = ikb m
AgNO3 → Ag+ + NO3 -
van't Hoff factor (i) for AgNO3 = 2
ΔTb = 2 × 0.5 × 0.1
(Ts – Tº) = 0.1
(Ts)A = 100.1ºC, so x = 100.1
Now solution - A of equal volume is mixed with 0.1 molal BaCl2 solution to get solution-B. AgNO3 reacts with BaCl2 to form AgCl(s).
0.1 mole of AgNO3 present in 1000 gram solvent or 1017 gram or 1017 mL solution,
milli moles of AgNO3 in V ml 0.1 molal solution is nearly 0.1 V. Similarly in BaCl2.
2AgNO3(aq) + BaCl2(aq) → 2AgCl(s) + Ba(NO3)2 (aq)
So x = 100.1 and |y| = 2.5
Question 11. Given:
The compound(s), which on reaction with HNO3 will give the product having a degree of rotation, [α]D = –52.7º is(are);
Answer: (c, d)
The enantiomer of (P) will have –52.7º rotation. So the reactant must be an isomer of D-glucose which can given the mirror image of (P)

(c) Surfactants form micelles above critical micelle concentration (CMC). CMC depends on temperature - True
(d) Micelles are macromolecular colloids - False, As micelles are associated colloids.

The correct plot(s) representing the changes from the state I to state III is(are) (p: pressure, V: volume, T: temperature, H: enthalpy, S: entropy)
Answer: (a, b, d)
I → II → reversible, isothermal expansion,
T → constant, ΔV → +ve, ΔS → +ve ΔH ⇒ 0
II → III → Reversible, adiabatic expansion
Q = 0, ΔV → +ve, ΔS → 0
Question 15. The correct statement(s) related to the metal extraction processes is(are);
Answer: (a, c, d)
PbS + 2PbO →3Pb + SO2
Self-reduction is taking place between PbS and PbO.
In the Bessemer converter: The raw material for the Bessemer converter is matte, i.e., Cu2S + FeS (little). Here air blasting is initially done for slag formation and SiO2 is added from an external source.
FeS + 3/2 O2 → FeO + SO2 ↑
SiO2 + FeO → FeSiO3 (slag)
During slag formation, the characteristic green flame is observed at the mouth of the Bessemer converter which indicates the presence of iron in the form of FeO. The disappearance of this green flame indicates that the slag formation is complete. Then air blasting is stopped and slag is removed.
Again air blasting is restarted for partial roasting before self-reduction until two-thirds of Cu2S is converted into Cu2O. After this, only heating is continued for the self-reduction process.
Cu2S + 3/2 O2 → Cu2O + SO2 ↑
Cu2S + 2Cu2O → 6Cu(l) + SO2 ↑ (self reduction)
Cu2S + 2O2 →Cu2SO4
Cu2S + Cu2SO4 → 4Cu + 2SO2 ↑ (self reduction)
Thus the molten Cu obtained is poured into a large container and allowed to cool and during cooling the dissolved SO2 comes up to the surface and forms blisters. It is known as blister copper.
2Na[Au(CN)2 ] + Zn → Na2[Zn(CN)4] + 2Au ↓
Question 16. A mixture of two salts is used to prepare a solution S, which gives the following results:
The correct option(s) for the salt mixture is(are)
Answer: (a, b)
Question 17. The maximum number of possible isomers (including stereoisomers) which may be formed on mono-bromination of 1-methylcyclohex-1-ene using Br2 and UV light is ______.
Monobromination of 1-methylcyclohexene in the presence of UV light proceeds by a free radical mechanism. The allyl radicals are formed which are stabilised by resonance. The secondary alkyl radicals are also formed which are stabilised by hyperconjugation. Of the seven products formed, six of them are optically active. So, 13 possible isomers are formed.
Question 18. In the reaction given below, the total number of atoms having sp2 hybridization in the major product P is ______.
The total number of atoms having sp2 hybridisation in the major product (P) = 12
This includes 4 C-atoms, 4 N-atoms and 4 O-atoms.
Question 19. The total number of possible isomers for [Pt(NH3)4Cl2]Br2 is
The given complex [Pt(NH3)4Cl2]Br2 has three ionisation isomers and each of them has two geometrical isomers.
