On observing light from three different stars \(P\), \(Q\), and \(R\), it was found that the intensity of the violet colour is maximum in the spectrum of \(P\), the intensity of the green colour is maximum in the spectrum of \(R\) and the intensity of the red colour is maximum in the spectrum of \(Q\). If \(T_P\), \(T_Q\), and \(T_R\) are the respective absolute temperatures of \(P\), \(Q\), and \(R\), then it can be concluded from the above observations that:

1. \(T_P>T_Q>T_R\)

2. \(T_P>T_R>T_Q\)

3. \(T_P<T_R<T_Q\)

4. \(T_P<T_Q<T_R\)

Two metal rods \((1)\) and \((2)\) of the same length have the same temperature difference between their ends. Their thermal conductivities are \({K}_1\)_{ }and \({K}_2\)_{ }and cross-sectional areas \({A}_{1}\) and \({A}_{2},\) respectively. If the rate of heat conduction in \((1)\) is four times that in \((2),\) then:

1. \(K_1 A_1=4K_2 {A}_2 \)

2. \(K_1 {A}_1=2 {K}_2 {A}_2 \)

3. \(4 {K}_1{A}_1={K}_2 {A}_2 \)

4. \({K}_1 {A}_1={K}_2 {A}_2\)

1. \(K_1 A_1=4K_2 {A}_2 \)

2. \(K_1 {A}_1=2 {K}_2 {A}_2 \)

3. \(4 {K}_1{A}_1={K}_2 {A}_2 \)
