The Poisson's ratio of a material is \(0.4.\) If a force is applied to a wire of this material, there is a decrease in the cross-section area by \(2\)%. In such a case the percentage increase in its length will be:

1. | \(3\)% | 2. | \(2.5\)% |

3. | \(1\)% | 4. | \(0.5\)% |

A metallic rope of diameter \(1~ \text{mm}\) breaks at \(10 ~\text{N}\) force. If the wire of the same material has a diameter of \(2~\text{mm}\), then the breaking force is:

3. | \(20~\text{N}\) | 4. | \(40~\text{N}\) |

Two wires \(X\) and \(Y\) of the same length are made of the same material. The figure represents the load \(F\) versus extension \(\Delta x\) graph for the two wires. Hence:

1. | Modulus of elasticity of \(Y\) is greater than that of \(X\). |

2. | Stiffness of \(Y\) is more than that of \(X\). |

3. | The cross-sectional area of \(Y\) is less than that of \(X\). |

4. | All of these |
