An ideal gas is taken reversibly around the cycle \(a\text-b\text-c\text-d\text-a\) as shown on the \(T\) (temperature) \(\text-S\) (entropy) diagram.
                  
The most appropriate representation of the above cycle on a \(U\) (internal energy) \(\text-V\) (volume) diagram is:

1. 2.
3. 4.

A gas expands from \(\mathrm{i}\) to \(\mathrm{f}\) along the three paths indicated. The work done along the three paths denoted by W1, W2, and W3 have the relationship:
                
1.  W1 < W2< W3

2.  W2 < W1 = W3

3.  W2 < W1 < W3

4.  W1 > W2 > W3

In this \((P-V)\) diagram below the dashed curved line is adiabatic.

                       
For a process, that is described by a straight line joining two points \(X\) and \(Y\) on the adiabat (solid line In the diagram) heat is:
(Consider the variations in temperature from \(X\) to \(Y\) along the straight line.)

1. absorbed throughout from \(X\) to \(Y.\)
2. released throughout from \(X\) to \(Y.\)
3. absorbed from \(X\) up to an intermediate point \(Z\) (not shown In the figure) and then released from \(Z\) to \(Y.\)
4. released from \(X\) up to an Intermediate point \(Z\) (not shown in the figure) and then absorbed from \(Z\) to \(Y.\)

An ideal gas is made to undergo a cycle depicted by the \((P-V)\) diagram alongside. If the curved line from \(A\) to \(B\) is adiabatic, then:
                    

1. the efficiency of this cycle is given by unity as no heat is released during the cycle.
2. heat is absorbed in the upper part of the straight-line path and released in the lower.
3. if \(T_1\) and \(T_2\) are the maximum and minimum temperatures reached during the cycle, then the efficiency is given by, \(1-\frac{T_2}{T_1}.\)
4. the cycle can only be carried out in the reverse direction as shown in the figure.

(b) The change in internal energy is the same in all four cases.
(c) Work done is maximum in case I.
(d) Work done is minimum in case II.
