Q10. Paheli had heard that rainwater is as good as distilled water. So she collected some rainwater in a clean glass tumbler and tested it using a tester. To her surprise, she found that the compass needle showed deflection. What could be the reasons?

The reason behind the needle showing deflection in case of rainwater is the fact that rainwater has dissolved salts in it which makes it a good conductor of electricity whereas distilled water is completely devoid of any salts and does not conduct electricity.
