# In a burette, the zero mark on the graduation scale is near its mouth.

True

##### SOLUTION

A burette is a device used in labs (chemistry) for the dispensing of variable, measured amounts of liquids or solutions. A graduated volumetric burette delivers measured volumes of liquid. Hence, a burette determines the difference between the initial and final volumes of liquid. Therefore the scale on burette is marked downwards(zero at the top), so as to measure correct amount of volume delivered.
Hence, given sentence is true.
