|Which of the statement(s) given above is/are correct?|
A) Only 1
B) 2 and 3
C) Only 2
D) All of these
Correct Answer: B
Solution :[b] The Light Water Reactor (LWR) is a type of thermal reactor that uses normal water, as opposed to heavy water, as its coolant and neutron moderator and a solid compound fissile element as its fuel. There are three varieties of lig1" water reactors: the Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR), the Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) and (most designs of) the Super Critical Water Reactor (SCWR). It is 21st nuclear power reactor in India.
