(b) A-b, B-c, C-a, D-d
(c) A-a, B-b, C-d, D-c
(d) A-c, B-b, C-d, D-a


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. H=10 cm
∆ H=?
▭(∆H=2 cm)

S2. Ans.(d)
– Simon rain gauge is a non-recording type of rain gauge and commonly used in India.
– Natural syphon rain gauge is adopted in India. It similar to weighing bucket rain gauge. It is recording type of rain gauge.
– Tipping bucket type of rain gauge is used for measuring rain in remote areas. It is recording type of rain gauge means produce continuous plot of rainfall against time.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Quantity of water treated per day = 6000 m³
Quantity of chlorine consumed per day = 20 kg.
Chlorine dosage = (Consumed chlorine per day)/(Quantity of water treated per day)
= (20×10^6 mg.)/(6000× 10^3 l.)
= 3.33 mg/l.

S4. Ans.(c)

Wooden & cost Iron sleepers

CST-9 & Through sleepers

Points & Crossing

50 mm

40 mm

25 mm

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Class A → Eminently hydraulic lime
Class B → Semi-hydraulic lime
Class C → Fat lime
Class D → Dolomite lime

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Talus → Soil transported by gravity
Till→ Soil transported by glaciers
Loess→ Soil transported by wind
Lacustrine→ Soil deposit in lake bed.
