A measurement of how much the velocity of an object changes with time is termed _____.
E. Velocity-Time graph
F. Average velocity
Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Acceleration is also defined as the measurement of how much the velocity of an object changes with time.
Acceleration = Change in velocity/Change in time
If an object changes velocity after a fixed amount of time, then such acceleration is said to be constant (that is: constant acceleration).
We also have the concept of average acceleration in motion.
Average acceleration is the total change in velocity over a period of time, divided by the duration of that period.
Acceleration is a vector quantity and its Standard International (SI) unit is meter per second (m/s) or meter per second square (m/s2).
Which of the following differentiates velocity from speed?
F. Distance and Time
The direction in which an object is moving is what differentiates velocity from speed. In short, velocity is defined as speed in a given direction. It is also defined as the rate of change of displacement.
FA = -FB
FA is the action force while FB is the reaction force.
The above statement expresses _____.
A. Force and Acceleration
B. Force and Gravity
C. Force and Momentum
D. Newton's first law of motion
E. Newton's second law of motion
F. Newton's third law of motion
ANSWER: Newton's third law of motion
Newton's third law states that action and reaction are equal and opposite.
According to the third law of motion, if a body 'A' exerts a force FA on another body 'B', body B will in return exert an equal and opposite force FB on body A. The forces FA and FB are therefore equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.
The following are solutions to atmospheric pollution except _____.
A. Putting in place laws that discourages afforestation
B. Prohibition of bush burning
C. Implementation of vehicular checks and maintenance on roads
D. Industries should be located away from residential areas
E. Solar and wind energies should be considered as alternative sources of energy
F. Improved use of nitrogen fertilizers should be encouraged
ANSWER: Putting in place laws that discourages afforestation
Atmospheric (or air) pollution is defined as the introduction of harmful or toxic substances into the air. Afforestation is considered as one of the solutions to atmospheric pollution; thus it should be encouraged.
Afforestation simple means the planting of trees. It is highly encouraged as a solution to air pollution. This is true because plants give out oxygen to the atmosphere as a by-product of photosynthesis. In fact, this is the only way oxygen naturally gets back into the atmosphere.
Understand that any process that puts oxygen back into the atmosphere is highly recommended as a solution to air pollution.
Carbon(IV)oxide, ammonia gas, sulphuric gas and chemicals from insecticides are considered as air pollutants.
In commerce, which of the following is false with regards to a commodity?
A. A commodity must always have a market value
B. Rendered services are also instances of commodities
C. Products applicable to commodities can be bought or sold with money
D. A commodity must be standardized
E. A commodity must be usable upon delivery
F. Commodities can be traded in the futures market
ANSWER: Rendered services are also instances of commodities
Commodities are always products (or tangible goods), not services. In fact, a commodity is defined as any product (or tangible good) with market value; and such product can be bought or sold with money.
For an item to be considered a commodity, it must satisfy three conditions. These are:
It must be standardized. In the case of agricultural commodities, they must be in their unprocessed state.
It must be usable upon delivery
The price of a commodity item must vary.
Generally, commodities can be put into two. These are:
Hard commodities: They include goods extracted from the earth crust via mining processes. Examples of such commodities are crude oil, gold, coal and diamond
Soft commodities: They include all products derived from agricultural activities. Examples includes chicken, wheat, fruits and grains.
It is noteworthy to state that certain commodities can be traded in the futures and forex markets respectively. Gold and petroleum (crude oil) are instances in this regard.
Answer true of false with regards to the sentence below:
'Humility' is a noun and 'Humble' is an adjective
Humility is used as a noun in sentences. Conversely, the word 'humble' is used as an adjective in a sentence. Below is an example:
His humility made him die for sinners
Humility as used in the sentence is a noun. Recall that a noun is a name of any person, animal, place, thing or activity. Humility in this instance is a virtue (or a 'good' thing).
The humble man died for the sake of love
Humble as used in the sentence is an adjective. An adjective is a word that qualifies or describes a noun. In this instance, the adjective 'humble' describes the personality of the noun (man).
In summary, the noun 'humility' is formed from the adjective 'humble'.
A part of a sentence or clause that contains a verb and something concerning the subject within that sentence is termed a/an _____.

In simple terms, we can say that a predicate gives more information about the subject and it commences from the verb within that sentence.
The _____ spectrometry experiment conducted on isotopic elements gave a confirmation for the existence of isotopes.
D. Number of moles
F. Amount of substance
Isotopes are defined as elements having the same number of protons (atomic number) but different number of neutrons. In summary, isotopes (or isotopic elements) have got the same atomic number but different mass number.
The existence of isotopes was eventually confirmed after the mass spectrometry experiment was conducted on isotopic atoms.
Some elements exhibiting isotopy include:
3517Cl and 3717Cl : Isotopes of Chlorine with mass numbers 35 and 37 respectively.
11H (Hydrogen) and 21H (Deuterium) and 31H (Tritium) are isotopes of hydrogen with mass numbers - 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

Marital separation may also be termed as divorce.
Marital separation and divorce aren't the same thing. They have got different meanings.
Marital separation (separation in marriage) is said to occur when a husband live apart from his wife (or vice versa) because the marriage isn't just working for some reasons. In this regard, some persons are of the opinion that separation in marriage is a step to towards marital reconciliation.
Conversely, divorce is defined as the legal termination of marriage by a competent body. It is also called the dissolution of marriage.
Which of the following is not a characteristic of the two-party system?

However, the characteristics in the above question gives us a clue to what a two-party system entail.
In a two-party system, only 2 political parties are present in countries where they are practised.
In a two-party system, other political parties may be present but the main point is:
The 'other political parties' will rarely get political offices after the outcome of elections.
In simple terms, only two political parties dominate the political landscape in countries where they are practised.
In a country like Nigeria (as at 2018), most political offices are held by two political parties. These are:
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
In United States of America, Democratic Party and the Republicans dominate the political system.

To know Him
To love Him
To serve Him
To be happy with Him forever
Our first parent, Adam and Eve enjoyed a life of complete happiness before they committed sin. They never knew what pain nor sorrow was until they disobeyed God. In short, both were perfect beings until they committed the sin of disobedience against God.
Disobedience may simple be defined as the failure to obey rules, command or someone in authority.
Adam and Eve were the first human beings to disobey God.
Adam and Eve were able to commit sin (disobey God's command) because God had given them that special gift of free will.
