Hello all,

Sharing the correct answers of yesterday's quiz -

Question 1.

Correct Answer: 1-c 2-d 3-a 4-b

Question 2. Name the location of this engineering marvel.

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 -

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 -

Explanation: A suspension bridge is a type of bridge in which the deck (the load-bearing portion) is hung below suspension cables on vertical suspenders.

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?

Explanation: One real Gigabyte is actually 1024 bytes x 1024 bytes x 1024 bytes...1,073,741,824. However, most people like to simplify this by simply saying that one Gigabyte is only 1,000,000,000 (one billion) bytes; which makes sense because the prefix Giga means one billion.

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

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:
