(a) AI=(PET-AET)/PET×100
(b) AI=PET/AET×100
(c) AI=AET/PET×100
(d) AI=(AET-PET)/AET×100
(where AET = Actual Evapotranspiration and PET = Potential Evapotranspiration)

(a) 10%
(b) 30%
(c) 50%
(d) 70%

Q6. The volume (in milliliters) occupied by aerated mixed liquor containing one gram of dry solids after setting for 30 minutes is termed as:
(a) Allowable solids content
(b) Sludge volume index
(c) Liquor index
(d) Chlorination limit

Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Versine of curve having Length (L) and radius (R) is given by–
▭(h=L^2/8R)

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Heart shakes → Cracks widest at center and diminishing towards the outer circumference.
Knot → A branch base embedded in timber by natural growth.
Rot → Disintegration caused by fungi.
Sap wood → Outer layers of a log of wood.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Spring stiffness, K=(Gd^4)/(8D^3 N)
K^’=(G×2^4.d^4)/(8×2^3×D^3 N)=2[(Gd^4)/(8D^3 N)]
=2K

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. ▭(Aridity Index (AI)=(PET-AET)/PET×100)
Where, AET = Actual Evapotranspiration
PET = Potential Evapotranspiration

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Specific gravity (G)=2.60
Void ratio (e)=0.78
Water content (w)=?
Fully saturated i.e. S=1
se=wG
1×0.78=w×2.60
▭(w=30%)

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Sludge volume index → Sludge volume index is defined as volume occupied in ml. by 1 gm. Of solid in the mix liquor when allow to settle for 30 min.
▭(SVI=(Settled Sludge volume (ml))/(MLSS(gm.)))
