4. Increased intake pressure and temperature reduces ignition delay and decreases flame speed.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: In fact, increased intake pressure and temperature reduce ignition delay and increases flame speed.

5. The increased flame speeds make the petrol engine more sensitive to fuel-air ratio and engine cannot run on strong mixtures without knock.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Actually, the increased flame speeds make the petrol engine more sensitive to fuel-air ratio and engine cannot run on weak mixtures without knock.
