Which among the following, is not a cause for power loss in a transformer-

(i) Eddy currents are produced in the soft iron core of a transformer.

(ii) Electric Flux sharing is not properly done in primary and secondary coils.

(iii) Humming sound produed in the tranformers due to magnetostriction.

(iv) Primary coil is made up of a very thick copper wire.

##### Solution :-

Right answer is (iv) Primary coil is made up of a very thick copper wire.

Explanation:-

As Primary coil made of Thick Coper wire has very less R. Therefore negligible power loss. Rest all options are reasons for power losses in a transforme

#### To a distant observer, the light appears to be coming from somewhere below the ground.

To a distant observer, the light appears to be coming from somewhere below the ground. The observer naturally assumes that light is being reflected from the ground, say, by a pool of water near the tall object. Such inverted images of distant tall objects cause an optical illusion to the observer. This phenomenon is called mirage. This type of mirage is especially common in hot deserts. Based on the above facts, answer the following questions:

(a) Which of the following phenomena is prominently involved in the formation of mirage in deserts?

(i) Refraction, Total internal Reflection

(ii) Dispersion and Refraction

(iii) Dispersion and scattering of light

(iv) Total internal Reflection and diffraction.
