2. Pick out the wrong statement.
(A) The controlling resistance in case of heating of air by condensing steam is in the air film

3. Double pipe heat exchangers are used
(A) When heat transfer area required is very high
(B) When heat transfer area required is very low, i.e. (100-200 ft2).
(C) Because it occupies less floor area

12. In an extended surface heat exchanger, fluid having lower co-efficient
(A) Flows through the tube
(B) Flows outside the tubes
(C) Can flow either inside or outside the tubes
