    (B) Tabling
    (C) Jigging
    (D) Froth floatation

8. Trommels separate a mixture of particles depending on their
    (A) Size
    (B) Density
    (C) Wettability

9. Pick out the wrong statement pertaining to the turbine agitator.
    (A) Recommended peripheral speed for the turbine agitator is 200-250 meters/minute
    (B) Pitched blade turbine agitator gives only radial flow with complete absence of the axial flow
    (C) Generally, the diameter of the agitator is kept between l/3rd to l/6th of the tank diameter while the blade length is l/4th of agitator diameter (with central disc, it is l/8th of the agitator diameter)
