MCQ on Biomass Energy For NEET 2020

Biomass Energy

MCQ on biomass energy which can appear in NEET 2020 paper will be discussed in this article; prior to that, let’s get a brief introduction on Biomass energy.

The energy produced from the organic material coming from plants and animals is called biomass energy. It is a renewable source of energy and contains the sun’s energy in the storage form as plants absorb it during photosynthesis. The same energy is transferred to animals when they consume plants as food for survival. Biomass energy is chemical energy which is released as heat when biomass is burnt. Many times, biomass is converted to biogas or liquid biofuels (diesel or ethanol). Some of the examples of biomass which are used for obtaining biomass energy include wood, agricultural crops, waste plants and wood waste, animal manure, human sewage, etc. 

What is NEET 2020?

NEET is the abbreviation used for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test and it is an entrance examination in India for all the students who aim for studying MBBS (undergraduate medical courses) and BDS (dental courses). Based on the score and performance, they can get admission in any of the Government or private medical colleges and dental colleges in India. NEET is succeeded from AIPMT (All India Pre Medical Test) examination. It was held across India for the first time in the year 2013. The NEET 2020 exam structure and pattern shall be the same as usual where a correct response will give 4 marks to the candidate and for negative marking, 1 mark is deducted for every wrong answer. However, no mark is deducted if the candidate has not attempted any question. The total time duration for the NEET examination is 3 hours.
