Assertion Reason type questions
  1. Both assertion and reason are true and reason is correct explanation of assertion
  2. Both assertion and reason are true and reason is not the correct explanation of assertion
  3. Assertion is true but reason is false
  4. Both assertion and reason are false.
 
Question 10
Assertion
The distribution of currents within the network for a given amount of current always takes place in a way that leads to minimum total power distribution in the circuit
Reason
For maximum output current by a source the source resistance must be equal to external load resistance.
 
Question 11
Assertion
When temperature of a cold junction of a thermocouple is lowered , the value of neutral temperature of this thermocouple rises
Reason
More thermo emf is produced when temperature difference between two junctions of thermocouple is raised.
 
Question 12
Assertion
A domestic appliance, working on a three pin , will continue working even if the top pin is removed
Reason
Third pin is used as a safety device.
 
Question 13
Assertion
A potentiometer of larger length is used for accurate measurements
Reason
Potential gradient for potentiometer of larger length with a given battery becomes small.
