(a) 2
(b) 1/2
(c) 1/8
(d) 8

Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Limit state of serviceability
(i) Deflection
(ii) Cracking
(iii) Fire
(iv) Corrosion
(v) Vibration

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Trickling filter is attached aerobic growth system and biological process takes places in trickling filters.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Primary consolidation – Due to expulsion of pore water.
Secondary consolidation – Due to plastic rearrangement of soil solid.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. There are various steps for the approval of work before construction-
2. Expenditure sanction
3. Technical sanction
4. Appropriation of fund
5. Reappropriation of fund
6. Laps of sanction.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Discharge velocity (V)=5×10^(-7) m\/sec
Void ratio (e)=0.50
Porosity (n)=e/(1+e)=0.5/1.5=0.33
Seepage velocity (V_s )=V/n
=(5×10^(-7))/0.33
=15×10^(-7) m\/sec

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Deflection when cantilever beam is subjected to load P
δ_1=(PL^3)/3EI
