  2. 20% gelatin gel block
  3. 10% agar gel block
  4. 20% starch gel block

Answer and Explanation

Answer: (2) 20% gelatin gel block

Ballistic Gelatine is the only medium that gives a close approximation of the effects of bullets. And to obtain the ballistic gelatine, 250A type ordnance gelatine is added in water to make a 10% solution.
-> For comparison of pellets and solid slug penetration, 10% ordinance gelatine is used. (rare)
-> To obtained the bullet’s terminal effect, 20% ordinance ballistic gelatine is used.
