Question 1

Which of the following is/are not true?
1) The continental slope is the shallowest part of the ocean typically ends at a very steep slope, called the shelf break.
2) Massive sedimentary deposits received over a long time by the continental slopes, become the source of fossil fuels.
3) Canyons and trenches are observed in continental slope region.

Question 2

Consider these statements:
1) The temperature of surface water decreases from the equator towards the poles because the amount of insolation decreases poleward.
2) The oceans in the northern hemisphere receive more heat than the oceans in the southern hemisphere.
3) The enclosed seas in the high latitudes record relatively higher temperature than the open seas; whereas the enclosed seas in the low latitudes have lower temperature than the open seas.
Choose the correct statement(s):

Question 3

With reference to the prevailing wind over the ocean, consider these:
1) The winds blowing from the land towards the oceans results in the upwelling of cold water from below.
2) It results into the longitudinal variation in the temperature.
Which of the above is/are correct?

Question 4

Choose the correct statement(s):
1)Thermoclineis the boundary region, from where there is a rapid increase of temperature.
2) About 90 per cent of the total volume of water is found below the thermocline in the deep ocean.

Question 5

On which of the following factors does the salinity of ocean waters depends?
1) Evaporation and precipitation.
2) fresh water flow
3) freezing and thawing of ice
4) Wind

Question 6

Consider these statements:
1) The horizontal motion of ocean water refers to the ocean currents, waves and tides.
2) When the tide is channeled between islands or into bays and estuaries, they are called tidal currents.
3) The ‘tide-generating’ force is the difference between two forces; i.e. the gravitational attraction of the moon and sun.
Select the correct statement(s):

Question 7

Which of the following statements is/are correct?
1) Totality of the physical and chemical factors that constitute the general environment is called ecosystem.

Select the correct answer using the codes given below:

Question 8

Choose the correct statement(s):
1) Some components in ecosystem are inter related and interact with each other while some does not show this character.
2) Different types of ecosystems exist with varying ranges of environmental conditions showing phenomenon known as ecological adaptation.

Question 9

Consider the following:
1) Total assemblage of plant and animal species interacting within specific conditions is defined as biome.
2) Aquatic ecosystem can be further classified into ‘biomes’.
3) Marine ecosystem includes the oceans, estuaries and coral reefs.
Select the correct statement(s):

Question 10

Which of the following is true with respect to Asia Continent?
1) The most commonly accepted boundaries place Asia to the east of the Suez Canal, the Ural River, and the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian and Black Seas.
2) Asia has the second largest nominal GDP of all continents, after Europe, but the largest when measured in purchasing power parity
3) Asia is Earth's largest and most populous continent
