With reference to various properties of X-Rays, which among the following statements is / are correct?
1.The Hard X-Rays have a shorter wavelength than the Soft X-Rays
2.The X-Rays are deflected by the Electric Field, but are not deflected by the Magnetic Field
3.X-Rays don’t show many properties of light such as Refraction, diffraction, Interference and Polarization
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] Only 1

The first statement is correct. The wavelength of X-Rays is from 0 Å to 250Å. The Hard X-rays have a wavelength of less than 10Å while the soft X-Rays have the wavelength of more than 10Å. The second statement is incorrect because Both Electric and Magnetic fields don’t affect X-Rays. The Third statement is incorrect because X-Rays show most properties of light.
