Choose the correct answer :
1. Which of the following pair of molecules contain odd electron molecule and an expanded octet molecule?
(A) BCl3 and SF6
(B) NO and H2SO4
(C) SF6 and H2SO4
(D) BCl3 and NO
Sol. NO is an odd electron species as N has 5 valence electrons and O has 6 valence electrons. Thus overall 1 electron on N remains unpaired.
S in H2SO4 has an expanded octet thus H2SO4 is expanded octet molecule.
Consider the above reaction, the limiting reagent of the reaction and number of moles of NH3 formed, respectively are :
(A) H2, 1.42 moles
(B) H2, 0.71 moles
(C) N2, 1.42 moles
(D) N2, 0.71 moles
Ideally 28 g N2 reacts with 6 g H2 limiting reagent is N2
∴ Amount of NH3 formed on reacting 20 g N2 is,

3. 100 mL of 5% (w/v) solution of NaCl in water was prepared in 250 mL beaker. Albumin from the egg was poured into NaCl solution and stirred well. This resulted in a/an :
(A) Lyophilic sol
(B) Lyophobic sol
Sol. Albumin from the egg was poured into 100 mL of 5% (w/v) NaCl solution in water. This would result in the formation of lyophilic sol. Albumin molecules get dispersed in water the colloidal particles of albumin are stabilised by hydrogen bond with water molecules.
4. The first ionization enthalpy of Na, Mg and Si, respectively, are : 496, 737 and 786 kJ mol–1. The first ionization enthalpy (kJ mol–1) of Al is:
Sol. The first ionisation enthalpy of Al would be more than that of (sodium) Na but less than that of (silicon) Si and (magnesium) Mg.
Thus, first ionisation enthalpy of Al would be 577 kJ/mole.
5. In metallurgy the term “gangue” is used for :
(A) Contamination of undesired earthy materials.
(B) Contamination of metals, other than desired metal.
(C) Minerals which are naturally occurring in pure form

(A) Sc3+, Zn2+
(B) Ti4+, Cu2+
(C) V2+, Ti3+
(D) Zn2+, Mn2+
Sol. Sc+3 and Zn+2are colourless as they contain no unpaired electron. Whereas the transition metal ions Cu+2, Ti+3, V+2 and Mn+2are coloured as they contain unpaired electrons.
The unpaired electron from lower energy d orbital gets excited to a higher energy d orbital on absorbing light of frequency which lies in visible region. The colour complementary to light absorbed is observed.
10. In neutral or faintly alkaline medium, KMnO4 being a powerful oxidant can oxidize, thiosulphate almost quantitatively, to sulphate. In this reaction overall change in oxidation state of manganese will be
