SATURDAY, 23RD NOVEMBER,
1. Distinguish between intensity of illumination and illuminating power. 10
Show that when a Bunsen photometer is properly adjusted, the illuminating powers of the two lights are directly as the squares of their distances from the photometer screen.
2. Describe a method of measuring small rotational movements by 10 means of a mirror. If the incident ray is fixed in direction, what is the relation between the angular motion of the reflected ray and that of the mirror ? Prove the correctness of your statement.
3. Describe the reflection of a plane wave front, perpendicular to the 10 axis of a concave parabolic mirror.
Find the position, and the magnification, of the image of a scale placed 6 cm. from a concave mirror, the radius of curvature of which is 20 cm. Draw diagrams.
4. How can the refractive index of a convex lens be determined ? Prove 10 the formula made use of.
5. Explain the molecular theory of magnetism, Ampere's theory of mole- 12 cular currents and the two-fluid-theory of magnetism, and show that they lead to the same results in the external field about a magnet.
6. Define the C. G. S. electrostatic unit of quantity. A sphere the 12 radius of which is 10 cm. is charged with 100 units of electricity. Find the potential, the electric density, the intensity of the electrostatic field on the surface, the stored energy in ergs.
7. Describe Volta's battery. What is the source of the electric energy 12 produced in it? Why is the E. M. F. of this battery very variable?
8. Describe the magnetic field of force about a straight wire conveying a 12 current, and show how it will deflect a magnet needle suspended in the earth's magnetic field.
9. Show how high voltage discharges, in one direction, can be obtained by 12 means of an induction coil and a low voltage battery.
TUESDAY, 19TH NOVEMBER.
[10 A.M. TO 1 P.M.]
1. Identify the five rock specimens placed before you.
2. How are all rocks classified? What is meant by metamorphic rocks? 12 How are these classified and subdivided ? Tabulate under each subdivision the following:
Quartzite, slate, marble, serpentine, gneiss, mica-schist.
3. Write short notes on the nature, properties and utility of the 8 following rocks :
Granite, gneiss, trap, laterite, limestone, sandstone and marble.
4. Distinguish between lamination, cleavage and foliation, and draw 10 a sketch of the last structure. What two distinct hypotheses suggest themselves as ragards the mode of origin of foliation ?
5. Draw a sketch map 'of India, and mark in the areas occupied by granite, trap, and recent deposits. Also locate the principal coal fields.
6. What is the origin of the Deccan trap? Mention some of its most remarkable characteristics. What is its geological age? Show how it is
Basalt, gneiss, miliolite, diorite, dolerite, flint, gypsum, felspar, kankar, iron pyrites, cales par, dolomite.
7. What are the characters and essential constituents of the following 10 rocks and minerals ?:
8. Give a short account of the geological effects and the causes of 9 earthquakes.
9. Define a fossil, and state the four methods of its occurrence.
Name the formations to which the following characteristic fossils belong:
Paradoxides, graptolites, clymenia, archæopteryx, calamite, dromatherium, ananchytes, physa, unio, glossopteris, næggerathiopsis, cerithium.
TUESDAY, 19TH NOVEMBER.
[2 P.M. TO 5 P.M.]
1. Name the three permanent adjustments of the five-inch transit 12 theodolite, in their order; and state how you would make the first of these three adjustments.
Show the advantages of the theodolite over the prismatic compass for surveying purposes.
2. Describe the method of plotting a survey with the circular card 10 protractor; and show the advantage of this method over the method sometimes employed in plotting a compass survey.
On what does the accuracy of plotting with a circular card protractor much depend?
3. Define and illustrate Gale's Traverse system; and state for what modes of surveys it is applicable.

10. The summits of two hills, which are to be connected by a third class 15 hill road 20' wide, are 5,000 feet above mean sea-level. The ravine between these hills, which is to be crossed on a level by the road, is fordable at only one point, which is 1,200 feet above mean sea-level; the hills have gentle slopes ; the nature of ground is muram generally and rock in places.
