Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Kharif crops sown in June and harvested in September and October. The major kharif crops are bajra, maize, cotton, sugarcane, paddy, jowar, rice, pulses, and ground-nut etc.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, d = 1500m = 1.5 km
Correction for curvature (C_C ) = -0.0785 d²
= -0.0785 × (1.5) ²
= -0.176625 m.
= 176 mm. (Negative)
Combined correction (C) = -0.0673 d²
= -0.0673 × (1.5) ²
= 0.151425 m.
= 151 mm. (Negative)

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given,
Length (L) = 4m.
Depth (D) = 2.5 m.
Discharge (Q) = 4 × 10³ l/hour
Detention time of tank (t_d) =?
t_d = (Volume of tank (V))/(Discharge (Q) )
= (4×2×2.5 (m^3 ))/(4×10^3×10^(-3) (m^3 \/hour) )
= 5 hours.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, Length of wall (L) = 4m.
Height of wall (H) = 3 m.
Area of wall = L × H
= 4 × 3 = 12 m^2
Quantity of plaster (two faces) = 2 × 12
= 24 m^2

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. e_max=0.8
e_min=0.4
e=0.6
Relative density = (e_(max )-e)/(e_max-e_min )×100
(0.8-0.6)/(0.8-0.4)×100
0.2/0.4×100
=50%

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Shear stress in solid circular shaft
τ=16T/(πd^3 )=(16×10×10^3)/(π(0.1)^3 )
=50.93 MPa
