(a) 2OSD
(b) ((SSD+OSD))/2
(c) 2SSD

(b) Igneous source
(c) Metamorphic source
(d) Sedimentary source

Q8. A level line is a:
(a) Line passing through centre of cross hairs and centre of eye-piece.
(b) Line parallel to the mean spherical surface of the earth
(c) Line passing through object line and the eye-piece.
(d) Horizontal line

Q9. In design of lacing system for a built-up steel column, the maximum allowable slenderness ratio of a lacing bar is
(a) 250
(b) 180
(c) 120
(d) 145

Q10. The tensile strength of M25 grade concrete will be
(a) 3.5N/mm2
(b) 5 N/mm2
(c) 25 N/mm2
(d) 35 N/mm
Solutions
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Type of soil along with their depth of foundation –
Sand – 0.8 – 1.0 m
Clay – 0.9 – 1.6 m

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given,
Σ latitude=1.39,Σ Departure= -2.17
Now,
Closing error=√((Σ L)^2+(Σ D)^2 )=√((1.39)^2+(-2.17)^2 )=2.577 m.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Self-cleansing velocity is such flow velocity as would be sufficient to flush out any deposited solids in the sewer. A sewer is commonly designed to attain the self-cleansing velocity at minimum hourly rate of flow.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. base period of a crop is the time between first watering at the time of sowing to its last watering before harvesting.

S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. Dynamic viscosity (μ) = 0.0034 (N-S)/m²
Specific gravity (G) = 1.3
Kinematic viscosity (ν) = μ/ρ
ν = μ/(ρ_w G)
ν = 0.0034/(1000×1.3 )
= 2.61 × 10^(-6) m²/sec.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. As per IRC 66 : 1976–
The intermediate sight distance = 2 × SSD
SSD = Stopping sight distance

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Most of the light weight aggregates are obtained from volcanic source.
Ex. Basalt, blast furnace slag, natural pumice etc.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Level line is a line lying on a level surface. Level surface is parallel to mean spherical surface of the earth.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. In design of lacing system for a built-up steel column, the maximum allowable slenderness ratio of a lacing bar is 145.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Flexural tensile strength = 0.7 √fck
= 0.7 √25
=3.5 N\/mm²
