It is only in the cyclic process that the absorption of heat from a reservoir and its complete conversion into work is not possible and not in any process as stated.

56. STATEMENT-1

(4) STATEMENT-1 is False, STATEMENT-2 is True

Ans : (1)
In the complex [Fe(H2O)5NO]SO4, the odd e- on N-atom of NO molecule is transferred to the incomplete d-orbital of Fe2+ which changes Fe2+ into Fe+ and NO into NO+. H2O and both being weak field ligand fail to cause spin-pairing into Fe+ as shown below:

As evident there are three unpaired electrons and hence paramagnetic

Paragraph for Questions Nos. 61 to 63

In hexagonal systems of crystals, a frequently encountered arrangement of atoms is described as a hexagonal prism. Here, the top and bottom of the cell are regular hexagons and three atoms are sandwiched in between them. A space-filling model of this structure, called hexagonal close-packed (HCP), is constituted of a sphere on a flat surface surrounded in the same plane by six identical spheres as closely as possible. Three spheres are then placed over the first layer so that they touch each other and represent the second layer. Each one of thee three spheres touches three spheres of the bottom layer. Finally, the second layer is covered with a third layer that is identical to the bottom layer in relative position. Assume radius of every sphere to be 'r'.

Matrix Match Type

This section contains 3 questions. Each question contains statements given in two column which have to be matched. Statements (A, B, C, D) in Column I have to be matched with statements (p, q, r, s) in Column II. The answers to these questions have to be appropriately bubbles as illustrated in the following example.

If the correct matches are A-p, A-s, B-q, B-r, C-p, C-q and D-s, then the correctly bubbled 4 × 4 matrix should be as follows :

64. Match the entries in Column I with the correctly related quantum number(s) in Column II. Indicate your answer by darkening the appropriate bubbles of the 4 × 4 matrix given in the ORS.
