Q-7)   Consider the following statements :
  1. Short wave bands are used for transmission of radio waves to a large distance.
  2. Short waves are reflected by ionosphere.
  3. A pure semiconductor has negative temperature coefficient of resistance.
Which of the above statements are correct?

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

Explanation:

Waves having the range of wavelength from 30 km to 30 cm are known as short waves.

These waves are used for radio transmission and for general communication purpose to a longer distance from ionosphere.

Ionosphere is the outermost region of atmosphere extending from height of 80 km to 400 km approximately, above the surface of earth.
