    In this article you will get the clue that from where and how the questions are being framed from the chapter Sources of Energy .The experts of jagranjosh.com have full confidence that you will not miss any of the questions in the board exam as well as in competitive exams from this chapter if you will keep the following terms / question in your mind while studying

    • Why is Uranium a non renewable source of energy?
    • Using wood as a source of energy is not wise decisions explain?
    • Characteristics of good source of energy?
    • How do we measure usefulness of fuel?
