edited July 2016 in Current Affairs
The objective here is Revision rather than Speculation.

Guys we have entered the last phase, with 20 days to go it is almost certain that the paper would have been finalised by now.

Now if you had to place a bet on a single topic which you think has the greatest probability of coming in the exam what would it be?
Just write a simplified , crisp summary of that topic, which explains everything about it even to somebody who hasn’t ever heard of it yet. Follow it up with a made up mock question from that topic and also provide the correct answer in the end.

We all love spending time on the forum, this way we will have a summary of super important topics till the 7th which would be revised in a rather relaxed mood than flipping the underlined pages from the notes/book.
Few Rules:
1.Only one post is welcomed per member.
2.Please choose a topic which has not been discussed in earlier bets. No repetition of topics. 
3. Please avoid commenting unless you have to point out that somebody has erred in his explanation and provide the correct explanation. If you appreciate a post simply like it, add your topic and pass on the baton.

The senior players in this forum know the frequency of this unpredictable exam to a reasonable extent. I request all of you to contribute so that we don’t miss anything which is really important.
Tagging few active members here.. I request them to tag other active members (I am relatively new to the forum)..
@DrKingSchultz @Neyawn @pizza @IWRA @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh @Sir_Potassium_Pandey @Captain_Peroxide @Jaime_Lannister @Arminius @stable_graphene @Etat @PREM_CHOPRA @soo @Wind_Energy @Sleeplessnights_89 @Krur_Singh
Do contribute guys .. it will only take 15-20 minutes for a topic 

Let the Gamble start……

  • Let me start first ... :smiley:

    I place my bet on : Lagrange points

    What are they?
    A Lagrange Point is a location in space where the combined gravitational force of two large bodies cancel out the centripetal force being felt by a small body. Simply put, it is a point of equilibrium for a small body w.r.t. to large bodies.

    Since the body remains “parked” (in equilibrium) at these points these points can be use for taking obseravtions.

    Why it is probable for exam?
    ISRO has planned to use points L1 and L5 for its Aditya Mission to study the sun.

    What are L1 and L5?

    There are five Lagrange Points with respect to the earth and the sun, namely L1,L2,L3,L4,L5.
    L1 , L2 and L3 lie on the line connecting the centres of earth and the sun. L1 lies between them.
    L2 behind the earth when viewed from sun and L3 behind the sun when viewed from earth.

    L3 is behind the sun thus it is not at all useful for space observation purpose.
    L1 , L2 ,L3 are points of relatively unstable equilibrium.

    L4, L5 are stable they. If earth and sun occupy the corners of an imaginary equilateral triangle points L4 and L5 will correspond to the third corner of the triangle. (The picture will make it more clear)

    Dust and asteroids accumulate in regions L4 and L5 because of there stability .Such asteroids are called Trojans.
    Question:

    Consider the following statements about “Lagrange Points”?

    1.They are positions of equilibrium in a system of two bodies in space.
    2. Five such points exist in the system of the earth and sun which are named L1, L2,L3,L4,L5.
    3. L1,L2,L3,L4,L5 occupy the corners of a pentagon which has sun at its centre.
    4.ISRO plans to use points L1 and L5 for its Aditya mission.
    Which of the above statements is/are correct?
    A. 1,2 and 4
    B. 2 and 4
    C. 1,2 and 3
    D. All of the above.

    Answer: B
    1 is wrong because it is a system comprises of three bodies 2 large bodies and one much smaller.
