This time CSIR does not allow candidates to carry questions with them. We have collected maximum questions from our candidates (memory based).

1. A shopkeeper purchases a product for Rs. 100 and sells it making a profit of 10%. The customer resells it to the same shopkeeper incurring a loss of 10%. In these dealings the shopkeeper makes
1.   no profit, no loss
2.   Rs. 11
3.   Re. 1
4.   Rs. 20

2.  A film projector and microscope give equal magnification. But a film projector is not used to see living cells because
1. a living cell cannot be placed in a film projector.
2. the viewer’s eye is close to a microscope whereas it is far away from the projector’s screen.
3. a microscope produces a virtual image whereas a projector produces a real image.
4. a microscope has greater resolving power than a projector.
A microscope, besides giving a magnified image of the object should give increased resolution also. High magnification is of no use if the resolution is inadequate. The extent to which a microscope can distinguish fine details in the specimen as separate, distinct entity is called its resolution.
3.  Statement A. The following statement is true
