DIRECTIONS: Read the passage below and answer the questions that follows:

A hole in the topmost layer of the sun and its magnetic field, the size of 50 Earths, is letting loose an ultrafast solar wind that has kicked off several nights of auroras down on Earth.

A new image, from NASA’s orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, reveals the enormous hole as it was on Oct. 10, taken at an ultraviolet wavelength unseen by the human eye. To an ordinary observer, the gaping hole would be invisible, though you should never stare at the sun because serious eye damage can result.

The gap in the sun’s magnetic field lets out a stream of particles travelling at up to 500 miles per second, kindling a days­long geomagnetic storm upon hitting Earth.

Coronal holes normally form over the sun’s poles and lower latitudes, more often when the sun is at a less active point in its 11­year cycle. They are areas within the sun’s outermost layer, called its corona, which are lower density and cooler — that, plus the weakened magnetic field, lets the plasma and charged particles that make up the corona stream out more easily in a solar wind. If aimed toward Earth, that spells the makings of a geomagnetic storm: a phenomenon that can affect power and navigation for satellites orbiting the Earth as well as radio communication.

Another wayward effect of a geomagnetic storm is enhanced northern lights: the glowing auroras that often form in the night sky over the northernmost reaches of the planet grow much brighter and can even extend much farther south than usual. Geomagnetic storms and auroras can also be caused by other sun phenomena, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, which both blast the corona’s material outward because of increased magnetic activity.

As the coronal hole continues its slow march westward on the sun’s surface, solar winds will stay strong, NOAA officials said in a statement, which may lead to additional minor geomagnetic storming. Thus, bright auroras will likely continue — at least around the Arctic Circle.

15) Question:­ As per the passage auroras most precisely mean to be

(A) The gases released in the space

(B) The bands of light

(C) The ultra­violet rays of the sun

(D) The solar energy compounds

16)  Question:­ The said phenomenon is triggered because of?

(A) A hole in the helium hot ball

(B) A hole in the layers of earth

(C) A leakage in the masses in space

(D) Extreme air pressure around the earth’s atmosphere

17)  Question:­ Staring at the sun directly may result in?

(A) Loss of sensory motions

(B) Partial or complete blindness

(C) Damage to brain cells

(D) Collapsing of nervous system

18) Question:­ Coronal holes are likely to form when?

(A) The sun is at its highest altitude

(B) The sun has approximated half its distance with earth

(C) The sun is at a less active point

(D) The sun’s gaseous particles have diffused with its surroundings Correct

19) Question:­ The geomagnetic storm can be a hindrance?

(A) In the space where different compounds react in totality

(B) To the earth’s atmospheric pressure belt

(C) To the movements of navigation satellites and radio communication

 (D) In the formation of stars

20)  Question:­ As per the author, ‘wayward effect’ would precisely mean?

(A) Side effect

(B) Dual effect

(C) Sensory effect

(D) Following effect

21)  Question: ­ The glowing auroras have a tendency to?

(A) Dwarf down after reaching a certain size

(B) Grow and extend southwards

(C) Glow brighter in the night sky

(D) Emerge bigger in shape and size

22) Question:­ Another sun phenomenon that can cause aurora is?

(A) Air pressure mechanism

(C) Coronal mass ejections

(D) Gas leakages
