1. Axis of the plate level is perpendicular to the vertical axis.
2. The line of collimation is at right angles to the vertical axis.
3. The axis of the altitude level is parallel to the line of collimation when it is horizontal and the vertical circle reads zero.
Select the correct answer using the codes given below
Codes
(a) 1 and 2
(b) 1 and 3
(c) 2 and 3
(d) 1, 2 and 3

SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given,
Σ latitude=1.39
Σ Departure= -2.17
Now,
Closing error=√((Σ L)^2+(Σ D)^2 )
=√((1.39)^2+(-2.17)^2 )
=2.577 m.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. four techniques of plane table surveying.
(ii) Traversing
(iii) Intersection
(iv) Resection
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. true length of survey line (L) = 500 m.
Measured length of the line (L’) = 502 m.
True or designated length of the chain (l) = 20 m.
Actual/ incorrect length of chain (l’) =?
L×l=L^’×l^’
500×20=502×l^’
l^’=500/502×20
▭(l^’=19.92 m.)
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Reciprocal levelling is the levelling between two widely separated points in which observation are made in both directions. It eliminates collimation and curvature error fully and refraction error partly.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Reciprocal levelling – Involves the principle of two peg test.
Trigonometrical levelling – Involves measuring of horizontal distances and vertical angles in field.
Hypsometry – Involves the principle of boiling point of water variation with altitude.
Profile levelling – Involves observing elevations of a number of points along the centre line and their distance along it.
S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. When a theodolite is in proper adjustment, the following conditions between fundamental lines are satisfied-
1. Axis of the plate level is perpendicular to the vertical axis.
2. The line of collimation is at right angles to the vertical axis.
3. The axis of the altitude level is parallel to the line of collimation when it is horizontal and the vertical circle reads zero.
