S1. Ans.(b)



S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. → Ranking Gorden formula cased to find out bucking load of medium column.

→ Euler formula used for calculating buckling load of long column.


S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. when the curve is to be set out over a rough ground. Theodolite method & tacheometric method is used.


S4. Ans.(b)


S. No. Sodium Absorption rate (SAR) value Classification
1. 0-10 Low sodium water
2. 10-18 Medium sodium water
3. 18-26 High sodium water
4. >26 Very high sodium water


S5. Ans.(b)


Estimate for electrical wiring is prepared on the basis of number of points.


S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Sewage sickness is a phenomenon in which stoppage of free circulation of air due to clogging of soil pores.


S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. If pores of a soil are full of air only, then it means only air voids are present in soil. & no water voids in the soil are present. So this type of soil is known as dry soil. If water voids are present in any case, then it can be partially saturated or fully saturated soil.

S8. Ans(d)


S9. Ans(c)
sol. Manometer is the most preferred measuring device as the pressure is measured by difference in the column heights of the manometer. It is expressed in terms of inches or centimeters of fluid making it easier for the conversion process.


S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. shear reinforcement in RCC beam is provided to resist diagonal tension. Stirrups is provided in the beam for shear reinforcement. At corner spacing between stirrups decreases and increase towards centre.
