NEET Chemistry Important Q/As and Question types

Here are some of the important questions asked in the previous NEET (UG) question papers. From this, you can get a fair idea of what kind of questions you should expect in NEET Chemistry 2021. 

How helpful, right? Get started with your revisions now!

Question: 1

If Avogadro no. is changed from 6.022x 1023 mol-1 to 6.022×1020 mol-1, this would change _______. 

  1. The ratio of chemical species to each other in a balanced equation
  2. The definition of mass in units of grams
  3. The mass of one mole of carbon
  4. The ratio of elements to each other in a compound

The correct answer is (C)

If Avogadro o.​ is changed from 6.022×1023mol−1 to 6.022×1020mol−1, this would change

  • the mass of one mole of carbon from 12 grams to 12 milligrams.
  • However, 1, 2, and 3 remain unchanged.


Question: 2

At S.T.P. the density of CCl4 vapor in g/L will be nearest to _______. 

  1. 6.87
  2. 3.42
  3. 10.26 
  4. 4.57

The correct answer is (A)

According to Avogadro’s law,

  • 1 mole of every substance occupies 22.4 Liters at standard temp & pressure and
  • Weighs equal to its molecular mass.

Thus mass of at STP =154g

The volume occupied by at STP =22.4L

Density is defined as the mass contained per unit volume.

Density ​=6.875g/L


Question: 3

Oxalic acid when heated with H2SO4 gives:

  1. CO2
  2. CO2+H20
  3. H2O
  4. CO

The correct answer is (B) and (D)

Oxalic acid reacts with concentrated sulfuric acid to produce a mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and water.

oxalic acid (COOH)2​​+conc.H2​SO4​→CO+CO2​+H2​O


Question: 4

Which of the following will have Zero dipole moment?

  1. Ammonia, beryllium difluoride, water, 1,4-dichlorobenzene
  2. Boron trifluoride, carbon dioxide, 1,3-dichlorobenzene, hydrogen fluoride
  3. Nitrogen trifluoride, beryllium difluoride, water, 1,3-dichlorobenzene
  4. Boron trifluoride, beryllium difluoride, carbon dioxide, 1,4-dichlorobenzene       

The correct answer is (D)

This is a hard category question.

BF3​, BeF2​, CO2​ , and 1, 4-dichloro benzene all are symmetrical structures.


Question: 5

The reaction occuring between acetophenone and benzaldehyde in the presence of dilute NaOH is called:

  1. Aldol Condensation
  2. Cannizzaro’s reaction
  3. Cross Cannizzaro’s reaction
  4. Cross Aldol condensation

The correct answer is (D)

(This question also belongs to the hard category.)

Cannizzaro is a chemical reaction that involves the base-induced disproportionation of two molecules of a non-enolizable aldehyde to give primary alcohol and a carboxylic acid. 

Aldol condensation occurs in aldehydes/ketones having α-hydrogen with a dilute base to give β-hydroxy aldehydes called aldols. 

If the condensation reaction occurs between two different aldehyde/ketone compounds it is called crossed aldol condensation.


Question: 6

An increase in the concentration of the reactants of a reaction leads to change in:

  1. Collision frequency
  2. Threshold energy
  3. Heat of reaction
  4. Activation Energy

The correct answer is (A)

Collision frequency ∞ number of reactant molecules per unit volume.

As the concentration of reactants of a reaction increases, the number of reactant molecules per unit volume increases. This further increases the collision frequency.

Frequently asked questions (NEET 2020)

These are some of the questions asked in NEET 2020. Check if you can solve them? If no, start learning from now… 

Question: 1

Identify the correct statements from the following:
(a) CO2(g)CO2(g) is used as a refrigerant for ice cream and frozen food.
(b) The structure of C-60 contains twelve six-carbon rings and twenty-five carbon rings.
(c) ZSM−5ZSM−5, a type of zeolite, is used to convert alcohol into gasoline.
(d) COCO is a colorless and odorless gas.

  1. (a), (b) and (c) only
  2. (a) and (c) only
  3. (b) and (c) only
  4. (c) and (d) only


(1)CO2(s)CO2(s) (dry ice) is used as a refrigerant for ice cream and frozen food [not CO2(g)CO2(g)].
(2) The structure of C-60 contains twelve 6C rings and twelve 5C rings.
(3) (A type of zeolite) ZSM−5ZSM−5 is used to convert alcohols directly into gasoline.
(4) CO(g)CO(g) is a colorless and odorless gas


Question: 2

Identify the incorrect match:

NameIUPAC Official Name


Atomic numberNameIUPAC official name

The IUPAC offical name of Unununnium is Roentgenium. Specifically, the element (Z=110) is ununnilium. The IUPAC official name Darmstadtium matches Ununnilium.


Question: 3

Which of the following set of molecules will have zero dipole moment?

  1. Ammonia, beryllium difluoride, water, 1,4-dichlorobenzene
  2. Boron trifluoride, hydrogen fluoride, carbon dioxide, 1,3-dichlorobenzene
  3. Nitrogen trifluoride, beryllium difluoride, water, 1,3-dichlorobenzene
  4. Boron trifluoride, beryllium difluoride, carbon dioxide, 1,4-dichlorobenzene


The species with polar bonds and shall be non-polar i.e., have zero dipole moment if the resultant of all dipoles is cancelled due to symmetrical structure.


Question: 4

On electrolysis of dilute sulphuric acid using Platinum (Pt) electrode, which gas is obtained at the anode:

  1. Hydrogen gas
  2. Oxygen gas
  3. H2S gas
  4. SO2 gas


H2SO4 (dilute) on electrolysis using Pt electrodes forms H2 gas at cathode and O2 gas at the anode


Question: 5

The reaction occuring between acetone and methyl magnesium chloride, followed by hydrolysis, will give:

  1. Isopropyl alcohol
  2. Secondary butyl alcohol
  3. Tertiary butyl alcohol
  4. Isobutyl alcohol


In this case, it will be tertiary butyl alcohol. Here, methyl magnesium bromide is a Grignard reagent. On the other hand, acetone is a ketone.


Question: 6

Paper chromatography is an example of:

  1. Adsorption chromatography
  2. Partition chromatography
  3. Thin-layer chromatography
  4. Column chromatography


Paper Chromatography is a type of partition chromatography. In brief, chromatography paper contains water trapped in it, which acts as the stationary phase. The paper selectively retains different components according to their differing partition in two phases.
