Which way is better for giving AIEEE exam? ONLINE or OFFLINE.
-Yash asked -
I would personally recommend online. But the choice is up to you.
Please follow the following check to decide. Try to identify for yourself the plus points and negative points of writing AIEEE online and OFFLINE.
The most important disadvantage of choosing the OFFLINE version is the rarity of choices. You may have to travel long if you are not nearby the centre.
The decision is yours. But, think well before you decide.

Does gravity travels instantaneously? Or it travels equal to the speed of light.
No clear answer now. If we believe in the Theory of relativity, Gravity (Gravitational Waves travel with the same speed as that of light in vacuum. If gravitons are like photons, then it makes sense too.
However I invite you to think more and post your thoughts as comments here. Let the discussion begin.
I found the following links to know more

Why sound travels faster in humid air than normal air as humid air is denser than normal air? (Akash asked)
The speed of sound in a medium is inversely proportional to the square root of its density. Humid air is less dense than dry air. Therefore the speed of sounf in humid air is greater than that in dry air.
Are you thinking why dry air is more than that of humid air? This is a common misconception. Students used to think that humid air is denser than dry air. But it is not so. Just like skimmed milk (milk removed off its cream) is more dense than normal milk (with cream). Density of cream is much less than that of the rest of milk. So when it is removed, the residual milk becomes denser.
Humid air contains water vapor content. Water vapor is lighter than air. So when air contains water vapor, its density is less. When the water content is removed, it becomes denser.
What is present in between the atoms of gases?
(Aniket Mukherjee asks)
Answer: Nothing. Vacuum
Is there really a parallel universe?
As of now, the answer is not final. There are different ideas and explanation given on parallel universes. Some say if parallel universe are far away from us, whereas others say that they are very close to us.
String theorists say that there are actually 11 dimensions. They’d come to the conclusion that our Universe is just one bubble among an infinite number of membranous bubbles which ripple as they wobble through the eleventh dimension.
If we think on probability also, we cannot just be selfish to say that we are alone. There is an equal probability of many such universes with life too.
I feel the space is not sufficient to explain all these thing here. The following links will help you know further.
I have read that the FLOW OF ELECTRONS is called electricity. I wanna know that what is meant by flow of electrons? Pleaz answer me….
Electric current is the flow of charges. (Measured as the rate of flow of charges).
In conductors electric current is caused by the flow of free electrons. When a potential difference is applied across a conductor, the electrons are accelerated towards the positive potential. (But, due to the presence of plenty of electrons, they cannot move with acceleration as they collide with each other during their motion.) There is a net drift of electrons across any cross section and a current is developed.
