U
very helpful. Plz provide some more points in ppt bcoz upsc answers are too complicated.We can read the information by stopping video. Discussion is enough.
ur course is very helpful in preapration thank u sir
sir but according to Arpita prakash mam when we cross iDL East to west there is decrease in date so pls make lesson to clear IDL
sir hindi me to apne kuch btaya hi ni h kisi b video me..issey acha to fer roman sir ki video dekh lete...fark kya rh gya dono...apke mcq solve karne se phle line ka meaning dekhna pdta h kya pucha h??? useless....

East to west losing a day not gaining sir
1. 101. Consider the following statements: 1. Mercury takes the shortest time to rotate and revolve around the Sun. 2. One Martian day is roughly the same as a day on Earth. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

2. Solution: (b) Mercury takes the shortest time to revolve around the Sun (88 days) but not for rotation. Jupiter takes the shortest time for rotation. Earth takes 23 h 56 m and 4s to complete one spin and Mars takes 24h and 40m to spin on its axis. So, one Martian day is almost the same as one Earth day.

3. 102. Consider the following statements: 1. All outer planets are made up of gases and liquids. 2. All outer planets rotate faster than all inner planets. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

4. Solution: (c) All outer planets are made up of gases and hence called gaseous planets or Jovian planets while inner planets are made up of rocks mostly and hence called terrestrial planets All outer planets rotate faster than the Sun as they are farther away from the Sun and experience weaker gravitational force of the Sun.

5. 103. Consider the following statements: 1. All planets move around the Sun in circular orbits. 2. All planets have retrograde rotation. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

6. Solution: (d) All planets move around the Sun in elliptical orbits. Rotation from East to West is called retrograde rotation. Only two planets have retrograde rotation, Venus and Uranus. All other planets have prograde rotation or rotation from West to East.

7. 104. Consider the following statements: 1. Earth is the largest inner planet. 2. Mercury is the hottest planet of the Solar system. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

8. Solution: (a) Earth is the largest inner planet and 5th largest planet in the Solar system. Though Mercury is closest to the Sun, it is not the hottest planet as there is no atmosphere to trap greenhouse gases. Being covered in clouds, Venus is the hottest and the brightest planet of the Solar system due to its reflection and greenhouse gas effect.

9. 105. Consider the following statements: 1. Saturn is the most oblate planet in the Solar system. 2. Cassini is the first probe to enter the orbit of Saturn. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

10. Solution: (c) Oblate means equatorial diameter is longer than polar diameter which is more for Saturn than other planets. Cassini-Huygens spacecraft was launched to Saturn in 1997 and arrived there in 2004. It will be deorbited in September, 2017.

11. 106. Consider the following statements: 1. Latitude is the arc subtended by an angle at the Earth's centre. 2. The distance per degree of latitude is same from equator to poles. 3. 1 latitude measures 111 km Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 and 2 only (b) 2 and 3 only (c) 1 and 3 only (d) All of the above

12. Solution: (c) Latitudes are arcs subtended by angle at the Earth's centre. The distance from Equator to poles is 10,013 kms which when divided by 90 gives 111 kms for 1 degree latitude. But the distance of latitudes varies from equator to poles because of the shape of the Earth. It is flattened at the poles. So distance is larger at the poles than at the Equator.

13. Solution: (d) In spite of its vast geographical extent, China decided to follow a single time zone for unifying its country and its people soon after the Communist Party assumed power. Since all longitudes converge at North and South pole, they have no time zone. Research stations follow the time of their countries or from where they set off their expedition. ISS follows Greenwich Mean time.

14. 109. What happens when you cross the International Date Line travelling from its east to west? (a) Date increases by one. (b) Date decreases by one. (c) Day remains the same. (d) Day goes backward by one.

15. 110. Which is the only continent without deserts? (a) Australia (b) North America (c) South America (d) Europe

16. Solution: (d) Australia is 2/3rd covered with deserts. Great Basin, Sonoran and Mojave are deserts of North America. Atacama and Patagonian are deserts of South America.

17. 111. Consider the following statements: 1. During equinox, days and nights are equal throughout the world. 2. During equinox, circle of illumination cuts through the poles Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

18. Solution: (c) During equinox, Sun is overhead at the equator making days and nights equal throughout the world. Since, circle of illumination is the line that divides days and nights, it will cut through the poles during equinox as poles are not inclined towards the Sun during this time.

19. Solution: (c) International Date Line passes through the Pacific Ocean and it deviates from the normal 180 meridian along the borders of the countries along the line so that they do not have different day and date at a time.

20. 113. Consider the following statements: 1. Narmada flows between Vindhayas and Satpuras. 2. Narmada and Tapti rivers flows from West to East. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

21. 114.The shallowest of the world's oceans is? (a) Pacific Ocean (b) Indian Ocean (c) Arctic ocean (d) Atlantic Ocean

22. 115. Consider the following statements: 1. Arctic Ocean is located within the Artic Circle. 2. Arctic Ocean is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Beaufort Sea. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

23. Solution: (a) Arctic Ocean is located within the Arctic Circle. It is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through Greenland Sea and Labrador Sea. It includes Beaufort Sea as its part.

24. 116. Arrange the rivers in the North South direction: 1. Jhelum 2. Sutlej 3. Chenab 4. Ravi Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1, 2, 3,4 (b) 2, 4, 3, 1 (c) 1, 3, 4, 2 (d) 2, 4, 1, 3

25. Solution: (c) The rivers from North to South are Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi and Sutlej.

26. Solution: (b) Depsang plains are in Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of actual Control and Utkal plains are in Odisha.

27. 118. Which of the following processes form(s) mountains? 1. Volcanic eruption 2. Folding Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) None

28. Solution: (d) The correct sequence of cities in the North South direction is Agartala, Gandhinagar and Kolkata.

29. 121. The hot and dry winds which blow over the plains of India and Pakistan are called? (a) Chinook (b) Foehn (c) Loo (d) Khamsin

30. Solution: (c) Hot and dry winds have different names in different parts of the World. Chinook in Rocky mountains in North America. Foehn over Alps and North Italy. Loo in India and Pakistan. Khamsin in Egypt.

31. Solution: (b) The correct sequence of cities in the East West direction is Lucknow, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

32. 124. Consider the following statements: 1. Half of the mass of the Earth's atmosphere lies in Troposphere. 2. The height of tropopause varies over Equator and poles. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

33. 125. Consider the following statements: 1. There are deltas on the Western and Eastern coastal plains. 2. Western coast and Eastern Coast have natural harbors. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

34. Solution: (d) There are no detas on the Western coat s they are narrow and steep and do not help in delta formation. Hence, they are natural harbors while the slope is gradual in Eastern Coast which enables delta formation and harbors are made artificially.
