Directions (Q. Nos. 10 – 14) In the following questions a statement of Assertion is followed by a statement of Reason. Mark the correct choice as:
(a) If both Assertion and Reason are true and Reason is the correct explanation of Assertion.
(b) If both Assertion and Reason are true but Reason is not the correct explanation of Assertion. ·
(c) If Assertion is true but Reason is false.
(d) If Reason is true but Assertion is false.
(e) If both Assertion and Reason are false.
Q10. Assertion: Atomic size of potassium is greater than that of sodium.
Reason: As we go down the group, atomic radius increases.
Q11. Assertion: Alkali metals have smallest size in a period.
Reason: They are at the extreme left of the periodic table.
Q12. Assertion: Nobel Elements were not included by Mendeleev’s Periodic Table.
Reason: Mendeleev did not know where to place in his Periodic Table.
Q13. Assertion: Electronegativity decreases from left to right along a period in the Modern Periodic Table.
Reason: As electron is added to the same shell when moving from left to right along a period, the force of attraction increases between the nucleus and the electron on the last shell.
Q14. Assertion: Atomic Mass of certain elements are expressed in fraction taking in account the availability of its various isotopes.
Reason: Isotopes of an element have the same atomic mass but different atomic number.
Q15. When you add a few drops of acetic acid to a test-tube containing sodium bicarbonate powder, which one of the following is your observation?
(a ) No reaction takes place.
(b) A colourless gas with pungent smell is released with brisk effervescence.
(c) A brown coloured gas is released with brisk effervescence.
