 Directions: The following question are based on the passage. Read each statement and shade the appropriate answer in the space provided for it on the answer sheet. If the temperature of a gas is decreased sufficiently a stage will be reached when the speed of movement of the molecules is so reduced that become close enough to exert attractive forces on each other. These forces differ from the forces that hold the atoms together in a molecule, but they are also electrical intact they result from the attraction between the positively charged nucleus of one atom and the negatively charged orbital electrons of atom in neighboring molecules such forces are called molecular forces (or van der waals' forces, after the discoverer). At that point in the process of reducing the temperature of a gas when the attractive forces between the molecules are sufficient to market the gas is said to have become a liquid. In contrast to solids however, the molecules of a liquid are still able to slide over one another, so that the bulk is able to adopt the shape of its container. Some of the more rapid molecules at the surface of a liquid are able to overcome the molecular forces of their neighboring molecules and escape from of the liquid into the gas above it: this process is called evaporation. As it is the fastest moving molecules that escape, that is the molecules with the greatest energy, the average energy of the remaining molecules will be reduced, and hence the effect of evaporation is to cause a reduction in the temperature of the liquid. As a result of the continual escape of molecules from the surface of a liquid, the gas above it will contain a certain number of molecules of the liquid. This number will depend on the temperature and the chemical composition of the liquid. However, for a particular liquid, at a particular temperature, the average number of molecules escaping from the surface will always be the same and the pressure these molecules exert is called the vapour pressure of the liquid.
As the fast-moving molecules of a gas released into a liquid, evaporation takes place.

 Directions Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given it on the OMR Answer Sheet. A blanket den on defection will weaken rather than strengthen democracy, in whose nimieties being sought to de imposed. Granted political defiance is increasingly less an act of ideological defiance than one of pure opportunism. Granted also that it is illogical to allow one third of the party to split but not a lesser number. Yet, for all its flaws, the current law recognizes and respects one fundamental principle. The right to dissent. Democracy is about showing the door to one who dares to disagree. Democracy is about granting her the right to dissent from within the fold. In a household context, it would be akin to a father throwing out his rebellious. How would a democratic father deal with this situation? He would allow the daughter to roister her protest knowing full well that to not do so would stifle the youngster's intellectual growth and turn her into a malcontent. The need to foster a democratic spirit is all the more in a political party which derives its legitimacy from participation in democratic elections. Indeed, like charity, democracy must begin at home. A political party that is intolerant to internal dissent can hardly be expected to be liberal and democratic in its external conduct. To tell a legislator that he owes to his party, which has facilitated his election, never to disagree with it, is the equivalent of asking that he remain forever in bondage. To do so is to journey back to the feudal age, when a servant who rebelled against the master would be called a 'namak haram'. Take the case of a party that asks for votes on one ideological platform but switches course once it forms a government. What is the sanctity of the party whip issued in such a situation? Should the conscientious MP vote as ordered or should she defy the whip? It has to be the latter and there can be no two views on this. Now is it valid to argue that differences can be aired in private but must not translate into a vote. For voting is the ultimate expression of a person's conscience.

To do so is to journey back to the feudal age, when a servant who rebelled against the master would be called a 'namak haram'. Take the case of a party that asks for votes on one ideological platform but switches course once it forms a government. What is the sanctity of the party whip issued in such a situation? Should the conscientious MP vote as ordered or should she defy the whip? It has to be the latter and there can be no two views on this. Now is it valid to argue that differences can be aired in private but must not translate into a vote. For voting is the ultimate expression of a person's conscience. According to the passage, political defection is increasingly taking place

A) more on ideological grounds

B) to strength the democratic process

C) as a result of basic conceptual differences

D) as a matter of pure opportunism

 A blanket den on defection will weaken rather than strengthen democracy, in whose nimieties being sought to de imposed. Granted political defiance is increasingly less an act of ideological defiance than one of pure opportunism. Granted also that it is illogical to allow one third of the party to split but not a lesser number. Yet, for all its flaws, the current law recognizes and respects one fundamental principle. The right to dissent. Democracy is about showing the door to one who dares to disagree. Democracy is about granting her the right to dissent from within the fold. In a household context, it would be akin to a father throwing out his rebellious. How would a democratic father deal with this situation? He would allow the daughter to roister her protest knowing full well that to not do so would stifle the youngster's intellectual growth and turn her into a malcontent. The need to foster a democratic spirit is all the more in a political party which derives its legitimacy from participation in democratic elections. Indeed, like charity, democracy must begin at home. A political party that is intolerant to internal dissent can hardly be expected to be liberal and democratic in its external conduct. To tell a legislator that he owes to his party, which has facilitated his election, never to disagree with it, is the equivalent of asking that he remain forever in bondage. To do so is to journey back to the feudal age, when a servant who rebelled against the master would be called a 'namak haram'. Take the case of a party that asks for votes on one ideological platform but switches course once it forms a government. What is the sanctity of the party whip issued in such a situation? Should the conscientious MP vote as ordered or should she defy the whip? It has to be the latter and there can be no two views on this. Now is it valid to argue that differences can be aired in private but must not translate into a vote. For voting is the ultimate expression of a person's conscience. The author has equated the party's stand to tell legislator never to disagree with it with

A) charity

B) feudal age
