GK Questions and Answers on Basic Science (Chemistry)
Chemistry is one of the physical sciences that help us to explain and describe our world. It is the study of matter, properties, how and why substances combine or separate to form other substances, and how substances interact with energy. Whatever material is existing is made up of matter — even our own bodies.
Chemistry is involved in everything we do, from growing and cooking food to cleaning our homes and bodies, etc. This article consists of some basic Questions of Chemistry which not only help in the interview, viva but also in the preparation of various examinations for an entrance.

A.Mercury is a liquid metal.
B.Bromine is a liquid non-metal.
C.Gold occurs in nature in free state.
D.Silver and copper are found in combined state only.
Explanation: Being least reactive Gold is the only metal which occurs in Free State because it is unaffected by air, moisture and other gases present in the atmosphere and inside the earth. Silver and copper both found in free as well as in combined state. Both come next in the order of inactivity series.
