Directions (Qs. No. 47-50): Read the following passages and answer the questions given below it.

     A pilot cannot fly a plane by sight alone. In many conditions, such  as flying at night and landing in dense fog, a pilot must use radar, in alternative way of navigating. Since human eyes are not very good at determining speeds of approaching objects, radar can show a pilot how fast nearby pilots are moving. The basic principle of radar is exemplified by what happens when one shouts in a cave. The echo of the sound against the walls helps a person to determine the size of the cave. With radar, however, the waves are radiowaves instead of sound waves. Radio waves travel at the speed of light about 300,000 kilometres in one second. A radar sends out a short burst of radio waves. Then it receives the echoes produced when the waves bounce off objects. By determining the time it takes for the echoes to return to the radar set, a trained technician can determine the distance between the radar set and other objects. The word “radar”, in fact gets its name from the term “radio detection and ranging”. “Ranging” is the term for detection of the distance between and object and the radar set. Besides being of critical important of pilots, radar is essential for air traffic control, tracking ships at sea, and for tracking weather systems and storms.
