Sol. Energy of X-rays-photon is greater then ultraviolet photon.


So, V0 and Kmax increases.
Electrons have speed ranging from 0 to maximum, because before emitting a large number of collisions take
place and energy is lost in collision.

Directions : Question number 72 to 76 are Assertion-Reason type questions. Each of these questions
contains two statements.
Statement - 1 : (Assertion) and
Statement - 2 : (Reason).
Each of these questions also has four alternative choices, only one of which is the correct answer. You have
to select the correct choice.

72. Four numbers are chosen at random (without replacement) from the set {1,2,3,.....,20}.
Statement -1 : The probability that the chosen numbers when arranged in some order will form an AP is

1
.
85

Statement -2 : If the four chosen numbers form an AP, then the set of all possible values of common
difference is {±1, ±2, ±3, ±4, ±5}
(1) Statement -1 is true, Statement-2 is true ; Statement -2 is not a correct explanation for Statement -1.
(2) Statement-1 is true, Statement-2 is false.
(3) Statement -1 is false, Statement -2 is true.
(4) Statement -1 is true, Statement -2 is true; Statement-2 is a correct explanation for Statement-1.
Ans. (2)

to count all notes is
(1) 34 minutes (2) 125 minutes (3) 135 minutes (4) 24 minutes
Ans. (1)
