S1. Ans (d)
Sol. For given operating pressure limits in a Rankine cycle, the highest efficiency occurs for Regenerative cycle. It is because mean temperature of heat addition increases in the regenerative cycle.

S2. Ans (b)
Sol. API stands for American Petroleum institute. API gravity is a measure of how heavy or light a petroleum liquid is as compared to water. High API gravity of fuel represents lower brake specific fuel consumption.

S3. Ans (c)
Sol. There are following properties of a good refrigerant:
1.Low boiling point.
2.Low freezing point
3.High latent heat of vaporization
4.Low viscosity
5.Low specific volume
6.High critical temperature

S4. Ans (c)
Sol. Lumped heat capacity approach of transient heat conduction analysis is used when conductive resistance of the body is negligible and hence, the variation in temperature throughout the body is also negligible.

S5. Ans (b)
Sol. When angle of contact is more than 90°, then liquid level will fall in the tube. In contradiction, when angle of contact is less than 90°, then liquid level will rise in the tube.

S6. Ans (a)
Sol. A Rotameter is a device that measures the volumetric flow rate of a fluid in a closed tube. It can be used in only vertical orientation.

S7. Ans (c)
Sol. We know that bending-moment equation,
Since, maximum bending moment and section modulus of both the beams are same, then maximum bending stress induced in both the beams will be same.

S8. Ans (a)
Sol. The main mean of power transmission in clamp coupling is frictional force.

S9. Ans (b)
Sol. The primary cause for deflection of arc, during arc welding is magnetic field called arc blow. Arc blow is mainly, the deflection of electric arc from its regular path.

S10. Ans (a)
Sol. A good bearing material should possess following properties:
1.Low coefficient of friction.
2.High hardness
3.High melting point
4.High thermal conductivity
