Solution: (a ) is answer Thermoplastic: Polymer that becomes moldable above a specific


temperature and returns to a slid state upon cooling.
e.g., Polyethylene, PVC, PET, Nylon 6
Thermosetting: Polymer material that irreversibly cures. e.g. phenol-formaldehyde, Urea
formaldehyde polyomides
Fiber: e.g. Nylon, Polyester, Phenol formal dehyde
Elastomer: e.g. polyisoptene, polybutadiene, styrene butadiene

If we add 7 in each entry in a list adds 7 to the mean of the list also so in term "( x1 xavg )"
7 cancel each other and standard deviation does not change. Q is not correct.
