(b) transverse displacement of one end of member relative to other end is effectively prevented
(c) longitudinal displacement of one end of member relative to other end is effectively prevented
(d) transverse displacement of one end of member relative to other end is not effectively prevented

Q6. BOD signifies:
(a) Biological oxygen demand
(b) Bacteriological oxygen demand
(c) Biochemical oxygen demand
(d) Biology of dehydration

SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Topographical survey → this type of survey consists of horizontal and vertical location of certain points by linear and angular measurements and is made to determine the natural features such as lakes, streams, hills, etc. and artificial features such as roads, villages and towns etc.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Closely spaced contour line ⇒ steep slope (Hill)
Apart contour lines → Gentle slope
Equally spaced contour lines ⇒ Uniform slope
Straight parallel and equally space contour lines ⇒ plane surface.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. In sway frame, transverse displacement of one end of member relative to others end is not effectively prevented while in non-sway frame, transverse displacement of one end of member relative to others end is effectively prevented.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given, member (m) = 15
Reaction (r_e) = 3
Joints (j) = 14
D_S= ?
D_s=(3m+r_e )-3j
=(3×15)+3-(3×14)
=48-42
=6
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In the aeration method, the water is brought in intimate contact with air which removes undesirable gases (like CO_2,H_2 S), tastes, odour, volatile liquid and dissolved mineral (like iron and magnesia) from water.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. BOD signifies biochemical oxygen demand (also called biological oxygen demand). It is the amount of dissolved oxygen needed by aerobic biological micro-organisms to break down organic material present in a given water sample at certain temperature over a specific time period.
