1. D

2. C
ODP can be estimated from the structure of a given substance. Chlorofluorocarbons have ODPs roughly equal to 1. Brominated substances have usually higher ODPs in range 5 – 15, because of more aggressive bromine reaction with ozone. Hydrochlorofluorocarbons have ODPs mostly in range 0.005 – 0.2 due to the presence of the hydrogen which causes them to react readily in the troposphere, therefore reducing their chance to reach the stratosphere. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) have no chlorine content, so their ODP is essentially zero.

HFCs are indeed much less damaging to Earth’s protective ozone layer. The bad news is that many HFCs currently in use are strong greenhouse gases, and they have been increasing rapidly in the atmosphere.

3. QuickBytes (Use these quotes/figures/facts in your Mains Exam)

In the North East there exists diversity in diversity, as there are many ethnic groups, who live peacefully and supplement each other’s achievements. For instance, Manipur should be known as sports state of India because of more athletes, Mizoram as bamboo state of India, Sikkim as organic state of India and Assam as waterways state of India. There are some states in the North East which are performing well because of hard work and discipline, such as Mizoram which has literacy rate next only to Kerala and Sikkim which has growth rate of over 20%.
