chemistry – Important Question Bank for Uttarakhand ( (UBSE) HSC 2016 Examination 

We had mentioned some tips for cracking the HSC Uttarakhand Board exam here: HSC Study Tips to Crack HSC Exams.

We had also shared Important Questions Bank for HSC Examination 2016  and students have really appreciated it and showered us with love last year.

Today, we are posting the Chemistry  – Important Questions Bank for Uttarakhand Board HSC 2016 Examination to make life easy for all you HSC students.

Without making you wait any further, please find the questions below:



  1. An organic compound ‘A’ contains 69.770/o carbon, 11.63% Hydrogen and rest Oxygen. The molecular mass of the compound is 86.
