Q13. Assertion: Many thermal power plants are set up near coal or oil fields.

            Reason: It is more efficient to transmit electricity than to transport coal or petroleum over the same distance.

Q14. Assertion: In a wind energy farm, a number of windmills are erected over a large area.

            Reason: The energy output of a single windmill is large and can be used for commercial purposes.

Q15. Assertion: The slurry left behind is removed periodically and used as excellent manure, rich in nitrogen and phosphorous.

            Reason: The large-scale utilisation of bio-waste and sewage material provides a safe and efficient method of waste-disposal besides supplying energy and manure.

 Q16. Assertion: Our energy requirements increase with our standard of living.

             Reason: The only way to manage energy demand is to produce more energy.

Q17. Assertion: Solar cells can be used to solve energy needs of areas which are not near the source of Electricity production.

            Reason:  The use of Solar cells is not widespread because of their high cost.
