    (3) different atomic number and different number of valence electrons
    (4) same number of electrons and neutrons
    687. (3) Each element’s atoms have a different number of protons, neutrons, and electrons, which is why they have different atomic numbers, difference in valence electrons and other properties. Their reactivity also varies because of the number and activeness of the electrons in the atom.

    688. Organic compounds are

    (1) Covalent compounds
    (2) Ionic compounds
    (3) Co-ordination compounds
    (4) Interstitial compounds
    688. (1) Organic compounds are always covalent compounds because it is more energetically favorable for carbon to covalently bond. Organic compounds, such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, are all examples of covalent compounds.

    (1) Fluorine 
    (2) Lithium
    (3) Oxygen 
    (4) Zinc
    689. (2) Alkali metals such as Lithium are the most electropositive elements in the periodic table. As alkali metals have low ionization energies, they have a great tendency to lose electrons forming uni-positive ions.

    690. Poison used for killing rats is

    (1) Calcium phosphide (Ca3P2)
    (2) Zinc phosphide (Zn3P2)
    (3) Magnesium nitride (Mg3N2)
    (4) Magnesium phosphide (Mg3P2)
    690. (2) Zinc phosphide is an inorganic compound that is used in pesticide products as a rodenticide. Formulated as attractive bait, it releases phosphine gas once it is exposed to acid and moisture in the stomach. The phosphine gas is very toxic to all animals.

    691. Antacid tablets consist of

    (1) Hydroxides of sodium, magnesium and aluminium
    (2) Hydroxides of magnesium and aluminium
    (3) Hydroxides of sodium and aluminium
    (4) Hydroxides of magnesium and sodium
    691. (2) An antacid is a base which neutralizes stomach acidity. The most common of these bases are hydroxides, carbonates, or bicarbonates such as Aluminum hydroxide, Calcium carbonate, Magnesium carbonate, Magnesium hydroxide, and Sodium bicarbonate.

    692. The element absorbed both in cation and anion form is

    (1) Sulphur 
    (2) Nitrogen
    (3) Calcium 
    (4) Phosphorus
    692. (2) Nitrogen, required in large quantities for healthy plant growth, is supplied either as a cation (ammonium - NH4+ ) or an anion (nitrate - NO3– ). The ratio of these two forms of nitrogen in the nutrient solution can have large effects on both the rate and direction of pH changes with time.

    (4) Copper
    698. (3) Nickel-based super alloys are an unusual class of metallic materials with an exceptional combination of high temperature strength, toughness, and resistance to degradation in corrosive or oxidizing environment.
