(b) 800 – 1200
(c) 1200 – 1520

(b) Rapid hardening Portland cement
(c) Low heat cement
(d)Blast furnace slag cement

Q9. Most important constituents of cement are
(a) C_3 A and C_2 S
(b) C_3 S and C_3 A
(c) C_3 S and C_2 S
(d) C_3 A and C_4 AF

Q10. Number of links in a 30 m metric chain is _________
(a) 100
(b) 150
(c) 180
(d) 200


S1. Ans.(b)

Grade of steel maximum depth of N.A.
Fe-250 0.53d
Fe-415 0.48d
Fe-500 0.46d

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. In column minimum diameter for longitudinal reinforcement is 12mm. for Transverse reinforcement minimum diameter is 6 mm.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Double mass curve technique is followed to check the consistency of rain gauge record. It is used to correct the inconsistency of precipitation records.

S4. Ans.(d)
Quantity of steel (in kg.) per meter length is given by = M/L=d^2/162=0.00618d^2
Where d = diameter of steel rod (in mm.)
L = length (in m.)
M = Quantity of steel (in kg.)
Now = M/L=0.00618d^2
= 0.00618×(10)²
= 0.618 ≃ 0.62 kg

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. substance bar is used to measure 90° Angle in any point & drawing perpendicular by exterior point & also used to measure horizontal distance.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. The Bangalore method of composting of solid waste is anaerobic.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. surface overflow rate for plain sedimentation tank is 12,000 to 18,000 l/day/m² or 500 to 750 l/hours/m² while surface overflow rate for sedimentation with coagulation is 24,000 to 30,000 l/day/m² or 1000 to 1250 l/hours/m².

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Low heat cement is preferred to construct a massive concrete dam because it has less heat of hydration.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Most important constituents of cement are C_3 S and C_3 A.

S10. Ans.(b)

(i) 20 m

(ii) 30 m


100 link

150 link

b) Gunter’s chain



100 link

c) Engineer’s Chain

100 ft


100 link

d) Revenue Chain



16 link
