**Solutions**

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. From theorem of continuity

A_1 V_1=A_2 V_2

π/4 d_1^2.V_1= π/4 d_2^2.V_2

d_1^2.V_1=d_2^2.V_2

(0.30)^2.2=(0.20)^2 XY_2

4.5m\/ sec〖= V_2 〗

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. By torsion equation –

T/J=τ/R=Gθ/L

Torque (τ) x Applied torsion (T)

τ α 1/J

J= Polar moment of Inertia

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. Coefficient of earth pressure at rest (K_o )

▭(K_o=μ/(1-μ))

For sand ▭(K_o=1-sinϕ)

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given

Duty = 864 hectare/cumec

Base period = 120 days

∆= ?

Relation between duty and delta is, ∆ = 8.64 B/D

= 8.64×120/864

= 1.2 m.or 120 cm

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given, length of wheel base (l) = 7m

Radius (R) = 490m.

No. of lanes (n) = 2

mechanical widening W_me = (nl^2)/2R

= (2×(7)^2)/(2×490) = 0.1

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. Shear reinforcement in RCC beam is provided to resist diagonal tension. Stirrups is provided in the beam for shear reinforcement. At corner spacing between stirrups decreases and increase towards center.
