1. The bond dissociation energy of O-H bond in a water molecule is _____________
(A) 23 kJ/mole
(B) 470 kJ/mole
(C) 470 J/mole
(D) 23 J/mole
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The energy required to break O-H bond in a water molecule is more than that required for breaking hydrogen bond, which is 470 kJ/mole.

2. What trend does the reactivity of group II elements follow with water?
(A) Increases down the group
(B) Decreases down the group
(C) Does not follow any particular trend
(D) No reaction
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: As we descend down the group, losing of electrons from the outer orbit of an atom becomes easy.

3. Unfolding of a protein can be termed as _________
(A) Renaturation
(B) Denaturation
(C) Oxidation
(D) Reduction
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The proteins lose their quaternary, tertiary, secondary structure and return to its native state by denaturation process.

4. Which of the following statements is true about ion-exchange chromatography?
(A) It separates proteins according to their size
(B) The column matrix with bound anionic groups is called cationic exchanger
(C) The column matrix with bound anionic groups is called anionic exchanger
(D) The column matrix with bound cationic groups is called cationic exchanger
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: It involves the attachment to the column matrix of ionic groups known that bind to the anted protein. Cationic exchanger exchanges cations with anionic groups.
