CSS MCQs — General Science Abbreviations

  • SONAR — Sound Navigation and Ranging (CSS 2009 & 2003, Everyday Science Paper)

  • CNS Central Nervous System (CSS 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

  • PTFE — Polytetrafluoroethylene (CSS 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

  • LDL — Low-density Lipoprotein (CSS 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

    • It sometimes called bad cholesterol, makes up most of your body’s cholesterol. High levels of LDL cholesterol raise your risk for heart disease and stroke.

  • SARS — Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (CSS 2009 & 2003, Everyday Science Paper)

    • COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a disease caused by a virus named SARS-CoV-2 and was discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. The official names COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 were issued by the WHO on 11 February 2020.

  • GUT — Grand Unified Theory (CSS 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

    • In 1974, Sheldon Glashow and Howard Georgi proposed unifying the strong and electroweak interactions into the Georgi–Glashow model, the first Grand Unified Theory, which would have observable effects for energies much above 100 GeV.

  • BASIC — Beginners’ All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code (CSS 2005 & 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

    •  It is a family of general-purpose, high-level programming languages designed for ease of use. The original version was created by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz at Dartmouth College in 1964.

  • BTU — British Thermal Unit (CSS 2009, Everyday Science Paper)

    • It is a measure of the heat content of fuels or energy sources. It is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of liquid water by 1 degree Fahrenheit at the temperature that water has its greatest density (approximately 39 degrees Fahrenheit).
