quiz-question

Correct Answer: Jammu and Kashmir
Explanation: It's the Chenab Bridge!
It's a railway steel arch bridge under construction between Bakkal and Kauri in the Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir in India. When finished, the bridge will span the Chenab River at a height of 359 m (1,178 ft) above the river, making it the world's highest rail bridge. O BOY!

Question 3. A tachometer is used for measuring -

Correct Answer: Rotational speed
Explanation: A tachometer (revolution-counter, tach, rev-counter, RPM gauge) is an instrument measuring the rotation speed of a shaft or disk, as in a motor or other machine.

Question 4. This bridge is a -

Question 5. Plasticity is a property of a material to undergo:

Correct Answer: a non-reversible change of shape in response to an applied force

Question 6. What number does "giga" stand for?

Question 7. Who was the First Indian scientist who got the nobel prize in 1968 for deciphering the genetic code?

Correct Answer: H.G. Khorana
Explanation: The 1968 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Har Gobind Khurana with Marshall W. Nirenberg and Robert W. Holley for research that showed how the order of nucleotides in nucleic acids, which carry the genetic code of the cell, control the cell’s synthesis of proteins.

Question 8. The International Space Station (ISS) orbits the Earth at an altitude of almost:
