6. In a dual shaft gas turbine when the speed is about 60% the torque is increased to _______
a) 100%
b) 90%
c) 140%
d) 120%

Explanation: In a double shaft gas turbine when the speed is about 60% the torque is increased to 140%. These values are found from torque and speed curve.

7. In dual shaft gas turbine when the engine speed is 40%, the engine torque is reduced to _________
a) 90%
b) 160%
c) 100%
d) 80%

Explanation: In a dual shaft gas turbine when the engine speed is 40% the torque is increased to 160%. These values are found from graph plotted between torque and speed.

8. Engine output is the ratio of __________ and torque.
a) speed
b) displacement
c) input
d) none of the mentioned

Explanation: Product of speed and torque is known as engine output.

9. At low speeds the output is __________ in dual shaft gas turbine.
a) low
b) medium
c) high
d) none of the mentioned

Explanation: At low speeds the outputs of dual shaft gas turbines are high.

10. In diesel engines engine output increases when engine speed decreases.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: In diesel engines engine output decreases with the decrease in the engine speed.
