Each question carries 1 mark
Negative marking: 1/4 mark
Time: 8 Minutes

Q1. If the R.L. of canal bed level and high flood level of drainage are 212.0 m and 210 m respectively, then the cross-drainage work will be
(a) Aqueduct
(b) Syphon
(c) Syphon aqueduct
(d) Super passage

Q2. Minimum pitch of rivets shall not be less than
(a) 1.5 d
(b) 2.0 d
(c) 2.5 d
(d) 3.0 d

Q3. A simply supported beam is considered as a deep beam is the ratio of effective span to overall depth is less than
(a) 1
(b) 2
(c) 3
(d) 4

Q4. The maximum safe permissible limit of sulphates in domestic water supply is
(a) 200 mg/l
(b) 600 mg/l
(c) 100 mg/l
(d) 500 mg/l

Q5. Calculate the length (m.) of the longer chord of 260 m radius curve having deflection angle of 90 degree.
(a) 353.6 m
(b) 392.7 m
(c) 367.7 m
(d) 500 m

Q6. A soil has bulk density of 22 kN/m³ and water content 10%. The dry density is
(a) 20 kN/m³
(b) 15 kN/m³
(c) 18 kN/m³
(d) 19 kN/m³


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given, canal bed level = 212.0 m.
High flood level of drainage = 210.0 m.
Bed level of canal is quite higher than high flood level of drainage, hence the cross-drainage work will be aqueduct.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. → minimum pitch of rivet = 2.5d
→ maximum pitch for compression = (12t,200)_minimum
→ maximum pitch for tension = (16t,200)_minimum

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. According to clause 29.1 or IS 456 : 2000
A beam shall be deemed to be deep beam when the ratio of effective span to overall depth l/D is less than:
1. 2.0 for a simply supported beam; and
2. 2.5 for a continuous beam.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. The maximum safe-limits in domestic water supply are:
Chloride ≤ 250 mg/l
Nitrates ≤ 45 mg/l
Sulphates ≤ 200 mg/l
Fluorides ≤ 1.5 mg/l

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given, Radius of curve (R) = 260 m.
Deflection angle (∆) = 90°
Length of Long chord is given by–
T₁DT₂ = 2R sin ∆/2
= 2 × 260 × sin 90/2
▭(T_1 DT_2=367.7 m)

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given,
γ_b=22 kN\/m^3
γ_d= ?
▭(γ_d=20 kN\/m^3 )
