improve school gradesDisclaimer: Before you head off into the Delta State University Post utme Questions and answers we have published for you, bear in mind that they may not always be correct. Although we have a team that is currently standby and correcting any errors that may be found in the Delsu Post utme Past Questions and Answers.

Also do well to correct us through the comment section at the end of the articles, we promise to personally coach exceptional students who provide useful corrections to any errors that may be found in the below Post utme Questions and answers.

Coaching simply means that we shall guide you through your Medical, Faculty and Departmental screening process when you are eventually granted Admission into the prestigious Delta state University.
If you are searching for the below search queries on search engine, kindly note that there are no specific questions for each departments.

Instead, Delsu prepares their post UTME questions to suite each faculty, therefore the Past questions and answers you will find below are suitable for the following Delsu Departments/Courses.

1. A piece of rubber 10cm long stretches 6mm when a load of 100N is hung from it. What is the strain?
A. 6 x 10’2
B. 60
C. 6
D. 0.6
E. 2 x 10-2

Strain = elongation = L = 6mm Original –length L0 (10 x 10) 28 = 0.06 = 6 x 10-2= A


2. Which of the following does not cause a reduction of the surface tension of water?
A. Soap solution
B. Alcohol
C. Camphor
D. Grease
E. Solvent

D. Grease

3. The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a body is
A. Thermal capacity
B. Thermal energy
C. Specific heat capacity
D. Heat lost
E. heat gain

C. Specific heat capacity

4. Water shows anomalous behavior
A. below 100C
B. At exactly 4°C
C. between 4°C and 100°C
D. Between 0°C and 4°C
E. Above 1000C

D. Between 0°C and 4°C

5. Which of the following phenomena cannot be explained by the molecular
theory of matter?
A. Radiation
B. Conduction
C. Convection
D. Evaporation
E. Saturation

A. Radiation

6. A gas occupies a volume of 300cm3 at a temperature of 27°C. What is its
volume at 540C, when the pressure is constant?
A. 150cm3.
B 273cm3
D. 600cm3
E. 125cm3

Since pressure is constant: V1 =V2 T1 T2 300 = V2thus V2 = 327 x 300 =327 = C 300 327 300

7. A man clapping his hands at regular intervals observes that the echo of a
clap coincides with the next clap. If the reflecting cliff is 160m away and the
speed of the sound is 320mS-1, what is the frequency of the clapping?
A. 2HzK
D. 1Hz
E. 12Hz

= 160m, V = 320m/s The echo travels: distance x 2 = 2 and v = 2f
320 = 2 x f x 160 thus f = 320 = 1Hz = D 2 x 160

8. Which of the fallowing properties is/are common to all waves? I Diffraction II Refraction III Frequency
A. II only
B. I and II only
C.I, II and III only
D. I and III only
