1. How does salt help to melt ice on the roads?

  • It heats up and burns through the ice.
  • It chemically destroys the water molecules.
  • It lowers the temperature at which water freezes.
  • The taste attracts animals, raising the air temperature around the road.

  • Air pressure at Z is less than air pressure at X
  • Air pressure at X is greater than air pressure at Y
  • Air pressure at Y is greater than air pressure at Z

10. Air is less dense than water because

  • A.
  • B.
  • C.
  • D.

15. Incipient most nearly means...

  • Powerless
  • Ignorant
  • Beginning
