When a strongly acidic solution, known to have a pH of 1, is tested with Universal Indicator, the colour of the indicator should be: red. purple. B green. C yellow. D

Q3. A C

When hydrochloric acid is added to aluminium carbonate, one of the expected products would be: aluminium. chlorine. B D carbon dioxide. aluminium hydroxide.


When an acid was added to a solid, a reaction occurred that produced a clear solution and a colourless gas. The gas popped when a lighted match was placed in the mouth of the test-tube. The solid must have been: magnesium. B hydrogen. marble. C a metal. D


A person took a sample of swimming pool water to be tested and was advised to add some sodium bicarbonate to the water. The water in the pool must have been: 1

A student has a white powder that could be magnesium carbonate, magnesium hydroxide or magnesium oxide. He tries to identify the powder by adding sulfuric acid to some of the white powder. When this is done a colourless gas is evolved and a clear solution remains. The equation to represent this reaction could be: Mg + HSO MgSO + H MgCO + HSO MgSO + CO + HO Mg(OH) + HSO MgSO + 2HO MgO + HSO MgSO + HO



A strong acid in solution is: mostly molecules. both molecules and ions. B D mostly ions. mostly water.

Q8. A C

The pH of a carbonated drink is: less than 7. equal to 7. B D more than 7. approximately 7.

Carolyn took a sample of Compound A (a green powder) and added it t a Solution B (a colourless liquid which had no effect on red litmus paper but turned blue litmus red). She noticed a colourless gas C was produced, the resulting Solution D had no effect on red or blue litmus she filtered the mixture then heated solution D gently until crystals formed. She found she had made crystals of copper sulphate.
