(a) incremental increase
(b) geometrical increase
(c) arithmetical increase
(d) decrease rate of growth

Q9. The main function of sleeper is

(b) to hold rails at correct gauge
(c) to distribute load from the rails to the ballast
(d) all of these

Q10. An imaginary tangent at a point which shows the direction of velocity of a liquid particle at that point is
(a) path line
(b) stream line
(c) streak line
(d) vortex line


S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. for derive the relation between the flow rate and the pressure difference between the throat and straight section of a venturi meter we need continuity equation and Bernoulli’s equation both.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sensitivity=(Unconfined compressive strength)undisturbed/(Unconfined compressive strength)remoulded

S3. Ans.(b)
Concrete Grade Type of concrete
M10 – M20 Ordinary
M25 – M55 Standard
M60 – M80 High strength

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. There are some forms of precipitation-

S5. 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)

S6. 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.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. According to IS :516, concrete cubes are prepared, cured and tested.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Geometric increase method: – in this method the rate of growth of population is assumed to be constant.
▭(P_n=P_o (1+r/100)^n )
Where P_n = population after n no. of decades
r = rate of growth
P_o = Initial population
n = no. of decades

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. the main function of sleeper is as following –
(i) To support rails
(ii) To holds rails at correct gauge
(iii) To distribute load from the rails to the ballast
(iv) Absorb shock and vibration.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. A path line may be defined as the line traced by a single fluid particle as it moves over a period of time, Thus a path line will show the direction of velocity of the same fluid particle at successive instants of time.
