**Solutions**

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. Damp proof course is measured in m² (Area).

DPC is used to stop dampness in building.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Detailed Estimate is most Reliable Estimate prepared by work.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Courtyard area is not included in plinth area estimate.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Accuracy in the measurement of the volume in cubic meter should be near to 0.01.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. The percentage of the cost of the estimate is provided for the electrification is 8%.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. Specific gravity of mild steel is 7850 kg/m³

= 78.5 quintal/m³( 1 quintal= 100 kg )
