(1aix)
(i) I avoided parallax error in reading clock/weight balance
(ii) I ensue repeated readings are taken to avoid random error

(1bi)
(i) weight
(ii) upthrust
(iii) viscous force/drag or liquid friction

(1bii)
The amplitude of oscillation of the loaded test tube decreases with time because of the viscous drag(force) which opposes the motion.

(2bii)
Given : f = 10cm
u = 20cm
v = ?
Using:
1/f = 1/u 1/v
1/10 = 1/20 1/v
Multiplying through with 20v, we have:
2v = v 20
2v – v = 20
v = 20cm
Magnification, m = v/u

3x)
i)i would ensure that the terminal are well tightened to avoid partial contact
ii)i would obey the conect connection of positive to positive to negetive to negetive when connecting to circuit

3bi)
The resistance of a metallic conductor increases with increase in temperature of metallic conductor increases the velocity of free electrons increases which cause resistance in the path of free electrons
