Some Example:

Q.1 With reference to street-lighting, how do sodium lamps differ from LED lamps?
(1) Sodium Lamps produce light in 360 degrees but it is not so in the case of LED lamps.
(2) As street lights, sodium lamps have longer life span than LED lamps.
(3) The spectrum of visible light from sodium lamps is almost monochromatic while LED lamps
offer significant colour advantages in street-lighting.
Select the correct answer using the codes given below:
(a) 3 only
(b) 2 only
(c) 1 and 3 only
(d) 1, 2 and 3
Answer: (c)

Explanation: LED Chips are mounted on a circuit board, so depending on the configuration, usually
180 degrees. This is typically an advantage because light is usually desired over a target area (rather
than all 360 degrees around the bulb). So, statement 1 is correct.

Sodium lamps lifespan is around 14,000 hours. LEDs last longer than any light source commercially
available on the market. LEDs are typically 40,000 – 60,000 Hours. So, statement 2 is not correct.
High-pressure sodium lamps (HPS) emit a broader spectrum of light than low-pressure lamps, but they still have poorer color rendering than other types of lamps.

Low-pressure sodium (LPS) lamps only give monochromatic yellow light and so inhibit color vision at night. LPS lamps in particular are monochromatic which means that the objects illuminated by them appear shadowy black rather than the color you would see during daylight.

HPS lamps are better but are still surpassed by virtually every other light on the market. LEDs can be designed to generate the entire spectrum of visible light colors without having to use the traditional color filters required by traditional lighting solutions. So, statement 3 is correct.
Therefore, the correct answer is (c).
