a) 1 and 2 b) 3 only c) All of the above d) None of these
Explanation: Japan would become the first country to extract natural gas from deposits of ‘burning ice’. Chemical name of burning ice is methyl hydrate. It is found in high pressure and low temperature area such as ocean floors often near continental fault lines where the gas crystallizes on contact with cold sea water.
10. With references to communication application, which one of the following is technically called ‘white spaces’:
a) It is the part of spectrum that works without causing any interference to the primary users.
b) It is the gap between two spectrums.
c) It is the spectrum allocated to licensed users.
d) It is the spectrum that has not been allocated to anyone.
Explanation: The primary users are the licensed users of spectrum band. They often do not use the allocated spectrum to the maximum. White spaces devices could help find the spectrum’s under utilized aspects and make the secondary users utilize them without causing any interference to the primary users. In Microsoft, researchers are working to harness the enormous potential of white spaces of white spaces to deliver broadband wireless that help people stay better connected.
