SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Area of plot =16 km^2

Area of plot in map = 1 cm²

1 cm² = 16 km²

1 cm = 4 km

Representative fraction (R.F.) = 1cm/(4×100000 cm)

▭(R.F.1/400000)

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. Direct vernier – division which are slightly shorter than main scale. Reading increases in the direction of the main scale.

→ n division of vernier is equal to (n-1) division of main scale.

Retrograde vernier – Division which are slightly longer than main scale. Reading increases in a direction opposite to main scale. n division of vernier (n+1) division of main scale.

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. Maximum tolerance for 20 m chain ± 5 mm & for 30 m chain ± 8 mm.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. True length of chain (L) = 30 m.

False length of chain (L^1) = 29.9 m.

False length of chain (l^1) = 300 m.

True length of chain (l) = ?

L×l=L^1×l^1

30×l=29.9×300

l=(29.9×300)/30

▭(l=299m)

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. line ranger is used for locating a point on a line. It’s also used to identified surveyor station by a distance.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. fore bearing of line ‘AB’ = 119°48’

Fore baring is less than 180° so we calculate back bearing by adding 180°. If fore bearing greater than 180° than we subtract 180° from it.

Back bearing of line AB = 180°+〖119°48〗^’=〖299°48〗^’

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. method of traversing in survey is used to measure angle & distance both,

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. magnetic bearing = 167°

Magnetic declination = 180°-167°

= 13°

The value given in southern hemisphere. Than

Magnetic declination = 13°E

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol. in leveling operation start with a back site & end with Fore sight.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. sensitiveness of level tube is designated by radius of level tube.
