OMG Silly mistake. Instead of using brakes I used breaks. @andromeda bhau thanks smiling_imp

The Answers are
We all ride motorcycles. So, here are are the questions.
Answers
1) If you are riding a motorcycle. Suddenly you decided to turn to left. Where shall you go?
a) Left
b) Right
c) I don’t know

The reason is countersteering.
way:


science behind it:

Pro Tip
Push your palms against the handle. To turn right, push your right palm away from your body. Same for turning left, push your left palm. This is more prominent when bike is speeding.

Practice Tip
Use an empty road or ground to practice this.

2) How shall you break your speeding bike?
a) Downshift, and apply front breaks only
b) Downshift, and apply rear breaks only
c) Downshift, and apply both front and rear breaks only

The most powerful brake in your vehicle is the front brake. That’s why they come at a bigger size than the rear ones. When you brake, the weight of the bike-cum-rider’s shifts to the front wheel. So, applying rear brakes is not a good idea. The idea is to slowly squeeze the front brake lever and the bike will stop. But then, experts have found, using both front and rear brakes simultaneously stops the bike even quicker. And this is how Combi brake got invented

Combi Brake:


Explanation:

Pro Tip
Use two finger technique on your disc brake equipped bike. Two fingers of right hand stays on the right lever, apply slowly but steadily the lever, i.e. progressively. Practice it and be amazed.

Why, downshift it?
Well, at higher gear engine revs at lower speed, when you down shift, you force your engine to run at a higher speed but you don’t give it much gas. So, the speed of the wheel, transmits via the gears to the engine. And since the wheels are forced to rotate the crank, energy is dissipated quicker. It is called engine braking.

This demonstrates


Explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_braking#Ga...

3) Bike is turned off. You started it. You pressed the clutch, put the first gear, and you slowly released the clutch. What might happen?
a) Bike will roll
b) Bike will halt

Engine is connected via transmission system to the wheel. If the transmission system is a gearbox, then the flow of power is like, Engine →clutch shaft→ Clutch → mainshaft→ Gearbox → driveshaft → Wheel.
Wheels n Gearbox are directly coupled. And gearbox is made such that, there is a neutral point, which enables to Engine run, even when vehicle is at a halt.

Watch this

So, when we start a bike, put it into gear and slowly release the clutch, the flow of power from engine to wheel happens smoothly and now wheel has to turn as it is directly coupled to engine via a gear. Any sudden disengagement of clutch lever ensures a jerky coupling between engine and gear. Because of inertial properties of the bike gear refuses to turn and engine is already coupled to the gear and to the wheel and that is why engine also stalls and bike halts.

4) Are mirrors on bikes necessary?
a) Yes
b) No

They are very necessary.

5) Scooters like Activas have a different kind of front suspension system. If you are moving and suddenly you break, what shall happen?
a) Scooter’s front ll squat
b) Scooter’s front ll rise up

Rule of inertia says, moving object continue to be in that state unless any external force acts upon. Check a photo of a front suspension of Activa and motorcycles. Motorcycles use telescopic forks mostly. So, you apply the brakes. Weight gets transferred to the front wheels. Then? Front tyre stops. But the body of the motorcycle is in motion. So, it will choose the path available. That’s why telescoping forks get squeezed, called brake dive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorcycle_susp...on explains it well. But some geniuses invented Earl’s fork. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorcycle_fork#.... There is this leading link between bottom of the front telescopic fork and an arm behind the fork. So, when you brake, the motion of the vehicle chooses the natural path available. The motorcycle’s body uses junction between the leading link and telescopic fork as a pivot(which coincides with the axle) and follows the semi-circular path around the leading arm using it as radius for the movement. Front rises up instead of squatting.
Activa used to use it. And that’s why on older Activa (which does not use Telescopic fork) front rises up while braking.

6) Why are bigger brakes used on front than the rear ones?
a) Out of necessity
b) Just style

7) Which one is the most powerful brake of a bike?
a) Front
b) Rear

8) What is the right way to overtake a vehicle?
a) Just take any route
b) Honk horns, flash headlights and if a pass is given, over take from right

More accurate thing will be, use all those things given above, downshift and move. Downshifting will give you more power and you will be able to accelerate. Upper gears are for there fuel efficiency.

9) How do you accelerate during overtake?
a) Downshift and speed away
b) Just roll the accelerator and speed away

10) Which one is the most powerful gear?
a) First
b) 5th/6th one

First gear is the most most powerful one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear_train#:~:tex....
So, check your manual. https://www.ek9.org/index.php?threads/ek9-honda... gives an example of gear ratios on a Honda Civic. First gear is 3.23:1, i.e. for every 3 turns of engine there will be one turn of wheel.
5th and 6th are generally overdrive gears. There are here for fuel efficiency. When you cruise on highway engine does not need to run at a higher speed. The same car’s 5th gear ratio is 0.848 that is engine turns 0.848 times every turn of wheel. Engine runs slower than wheel!!! That’s niceeee.

11) How to pick a good helmet?
a) Pick a cheap one
b) Goto a reputed dealer n choose as per usage n affordability
Don’t cheap out. If you are using a high power motorcycle yet you choose a cheap helmet is a big shame. Helmets costing 1000-2000 rupees wont save you from high speed impacts.

12) How often one should change one’s tyres?
a) Every 5 years
b) As per wear and tear
c) either a or b

Every 5 years or as per wear n tear, whichever is earlier

13) What is the right way of shifting gears?
a) Just pull clutch, shift gear and roll accelerator and release clutch gradually
b) Pull clutch, release the accelerator, shift up and go. Similarly, pull the clutch, rev the engine, shift down and go
c) Clutch may or may not be used in option b)
d) both b and c are correct
This explains



14) Is braking affected by correct tyre pressure?
a) Yes
b) No
Tyres are the most important component of both braking system and suspension system. Too much pressure, weaker tyres get and less grip on tarmac. Too less pressure, bike gets dragged behind and more fuel gets wasted.

15) Is maintaining safe distance among vehicles necessary?
a) Yes
b) No

Inertia

16) Do you know the braking distance of your vehicle?
a) Yes
b) No
This is a trick question. To know this right, just use an empty road, go at speed then use your brakes to come to a stop. This will give you an idea about your stopping distance. It comes handy in tight traffic and highways. Now you wont rearend anyone.

17) Do you get your bike serviced with right engine oil regularly?
a) Yes
b) No
This is a personal choice question. If you don’t use right engine oil, you will ruin your engine. So, refer the manual.

18) How to use headlamps properly?
a) always use high beams
b) use low beams in crowded space and both way roads
Commonsense and personal safety

19) Is exhaust pipe modification legal?
a) I dont know
b) I dont care
c) Illegal

It is illegal because of noise pollution it makes. If the noise is under legal limits contact authorities for better knowledge.

Right Sequence is bcaabaabaabcdaaaabc
