1. iv) rope - out of all these options the rope is the odd ball. The others can be crushed rather easily, but a rope due to its elastic properties has a higher compressive strength.

2. a) an alpha particle - Hydrogen has one proton, Helium as two protons. An alpha particle is defined as having 2 protons ...
