1.Assertion (A) : Decomposition of vegetable matter into compost is an example of exothermic reactions.

Reason (R) : Exothermic reaction are those reactions in which heat is evolved.

2.Assertion (A) : When HCl is added to zinc granules, a chemical reaction occurs.

Reason (R) : Evolution of a gas and change in colour indicate that the chemical reaction is taking place.

3.Assertion (A) : Calcium carbonate when heated gives calcium oxide and water.

Reason (R) : On heating calcium carbonate, decomposition reaction takes place.

4.Assertion (A) : Brown fumes are produced when lead nitrate is heated.

Reason (R) : Nitrogen dioxide gas is produced as a by product due to the decomposition of lead nitrate.

5.Assertion (A) : White silver chloride turns grey in sunlight.

Reason (R) : Decomposition of silver chloride in presence of sunlight takes place to form silver metal and chlorine gas.

6.Assertion (A): Pungent smelling gas is produced when sulphur burns in air.

Reason (R) : Sulphur trioxide is formed on reaction of sulphur with oxygen.

7.Assertion (A) : In a reaction of copper with oxygen, copper serves as a reducing agent.

Reason (R) : The substance which gains oxygen in a chemical reaction acts as a reducing agent.

8.Assertion (A) : In electrolysis of water, the volume of hydrogen liberated is twice the volume of oxygen ……formed.

Reason (R) : Water (H,0) has hydrogen and oxygen in the ratio of 1:2 by volume.

9.Assertion (A): Corrosion of iron is commonly known as rusting.

Reason (R) : Corrosion of iron occurs in presence of water and air.

10.Assertion (A) : The balancing of chemical equations is based on law of conservation of mass.

Reason (R) : Total mass of reactants is equal to total mass of products.

11.Assertion (A): In a balanced chemical equation, total mass of the reactants is equal to the total mass of the products.

Reason (R): Mass can neither be created nor destroyed during a chemical change.

12.Assertion (A): Iron articles are painted so as to prevent them from rusting.

Reason (R): When the surface of iron is coated with paint, its surface does not come in contact with oxygen and moisture therefore rusting does not take place.

13.Assertion (A) : Chemical reaction changes the physical and chemical state of a substance.

Reason (R) : When electric current is passed through water (liquid), it decomposes to produce hydrogen and

oxygen gases.

14.Assertion (A): When calcium carbonate is heated, it decomposes to give calcium oxide and carbon dioxide.

Reason (R): The decomposition reaction takes place on application of heat, therefore, it is an endothermic reaction.

15.Assertion (A): Zinc reacts with sulphuric acid to form zinc sulphate and hydrogen gas and it is a displacement reaction.

Reason (R): Zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide.

16.Assertion (A): Chips manufacturers usually Ilush bags of chips with gas such as nitrogen to prevent the chips from getting oxidised.

Reason (R): This increase the taste ot the chips and helps in their digestion.

17.Assertion (A): Exposure of silver chloride to sunlight for a long duration turns grey due to the formation of silver by decomposition of silver chloride.

Reason (R): In this process, sublimation of silver chloride takes place.

18.Assertion (A): Rusting of iron metal is the most common form of corrosion.

Reason (R): The effect of rusting of iron can be reversed if they are left open in sunlight.

19.Assertion (A): AgBr is used on photographic and X-ray film.

Reason (R): AgBr is photosensitive and changes to Ag and bromine in presence of sunlight and undergoes decomposition reaction.

20.Assertion (A): Magnesium ribbon keeps on burning in atmosphere of nitrogen.

Reason (R) : Magnesium reacts with nitrogen to form magnesium nitride and this reaction is combination reaction.
