Scaled to 75%
Year 9 1 A student takes a beaker of carbon dioxide gas at room temperature and tips it over the top end of a folded
piece of paper held near the flame of a candle. She observes that the flame flickers and goes out.

The student made the following statements,


1. “Carbon dioxide is heavier than air.”
2. “Carbon dioxide is a white gas.”
folded piece 3. “Carbon dioxide extinguished the flame.”
of paper 4. “Carbon dioxide flowed down the folded paper.”
5. “Carbon dioxide is soluble in water.”
6. “Carbon dioxide does not support burning.”

Which of these statements are inferences supported


by her observations?

(A) 1 and 2 only


(B) 1, 4 and 6 only
(C) 1, 3, 4 and 6 only
(D) 2, 5 and 6 only

2 A scientist wanted to investigate the effects of two types of antibiotics, X and Y, on the growth of a
bacterium, E. coli. He grew five cultures of the bacterium in a growth medium placed on separate Petri
dishes like the one shown.

Information about the preparation of the five dishes is shown in the table.

Which two dishes should he use


to compare the effects of X and
Y on the growth of the bacteria?

(A) I and III


(B) II and V
(C) III and IV

Question solutions–Paper H

Q1 the answer is (C).

Since the flame went out then the following must be able to be inferred:
Carbon dioxide is heavier than air;
Carbon dioxide extinguished the flame;
Carbon dioxide flowed down the folded paper; and
Carbon dioxide does not support burning.

Q2 the answer is (B).

To compare the effect of the two types of antibiotics on the growth of bacterium, E. coli, the scientist needs to make
sure that all other possible variables were kept the same except for the antibiotic used. This only happens in petri
dishes II and V.

Q3 the answer is (B).

For each carriage the locomotive will accelerate the train at a constant rate. When the next carriage is added the
rate of acceleration will drop. Because the mass of the train increases as each carriage is added, the addition of
each extra carriage increases the total mass by a smaller fraction, hence the acceleration is reduced by a smaller
fraction. When all carriages are moving the acceleration is constant.
