1. When the vibrating object moves backwards, it creates a region of low pressure called —————-

1. Refraction
2. Reflection
3. Rarefaction
4. Retardation

Explanation: Rarefaction is the opposite of compression. Rarefaction means the reduction of density of the object.

2. Mexican wave in a stadium is an example of

1. Longitudinal wave
2. Transverse wave
3. Electromagnetic wave
4. None of the options

Explanation: Mexican wave, also known as the stadium wave, is an ideal example of a vertically polarised, transverse, travelling wave.

3. State true or false: Sound does not need a medium to propagate.

1. True
2. False

Explanation: Sound needs a medium to propagate. The matter or material through which sound propagates is called a medium.

4. The distance which compression or a rarefaction travels per unit of time gives————-

1. The density of sound wave
2. Speed of sound
3. Wavelength of sound
4. Frequency of sound

Explanation: Speed of sound measures the compression or a rarefaction that travels per unit of time.

5. Is the law of conservation of energy applicable to sound waves?

1. Yes
2. No

Explanation: The law of conservation of energy is applicable to sound waves.

6. Sound travels through which medium?

1. Solid
2. Liquid
3. Gas
4. All the above

Explanation: Sound has the ability to travel through solid, liquid and gas.

7. When a body vibrates, it compresses the air surrounding and forms a high-density area known as —————-.

1. Refraction
2. Reflection
3. Rarefaction
4. Compression

Explanation: Compression is the opposite of rarefaction. Compression means increase in the density of the object.

8. The phenomenon where a sound produced is heard again due to reflection is called ———–

1. Sound bounce
2. Mirage
3. An echo
4. Interference

Explanation: To hear a distinct echo sound, the time interval between original and reflected sound must be at least 0.1s.

9. The number of compressions or rarefactions per unit time gives ———–

1. Frequency
2. Time period
3. Amplitude
4. Pitch
