    (B) Isobars
    (C) Isotopes
    (D) Isostere

5. "Critical mass" is the minimum mass of nuclear fissile material required for the
    (A) Sustainment of chain reaction
    (B) Power generation on commercial scale
    (C) Economic power generation
    (D) None of these

6. The emission of an a-particle causes the resultant nucleus to have
    (A) More atomic weight and less atomic number
    (B) Less atomic weight and less atomic number
    (C) Less atomic weight and more atomic number
    (D) None of these

7. When the difference between mass number and atomic number of atoms of two or more elements are same, the atoms are termed as
    (A) Isomers
    (B) Isotopes
    (C) Isobars
    (D) Isotones

8. Neutrons have mass approximately equal to that of __________ atoms.
    (A) Hydrogen
    (B) Helium
