Team StoryWeavers|August 01, 2022, 12:16 IST| 664

This is not just any Sunday! It’s the second Sunday of May. Which means it’s Mother’s Day! To celebrate, we’re doing a special edition of the Sunday Challenge. The questions (or answers) in this challenge are in some way or the other, related to mothers!

You can take a shot at the questions and leave your guesses in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed next Sunday. So keep your eyes peeled on the comments section and put on your thinking caps!

Ready? Here are your questions!

Question 1

Her daughter received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935 for discovering that radioactive atoms could be created artificially. She herself won the Nobel Prize twice – the first was Physics in 1903 and the second was for Chemistry eight years later. This makes them the only mother-daughter Nobel laureate duo. Identify both of them.

Question 2

Created as a by-product of chemical processes like sugar refining, this substance is the solution remaining after a component has been removed by crystallization. What is it called?

Question 3

Some molluscs like oysters produce a strong, colourful and iridescent layer on the inside of their shells. Called ‘nacre’, it’s the same material that pearls are also made of. What appropriate three-word name is nacre also known by?

Question 4

Pictured below is the garter snake. There’s something different about garter snake mothers when compared to other snakes. What sets them apart?

Leave your guesses in the comments section below. And remember, answers will be revealed next Sunday in the comments section too, along with a brand new edition of BYJU’S Sunday Challenge.
