S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. substance bar is used to measure 90° Angle in any point & drawing perpendicular by exterior point & also used to measure horizontal distance.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. fore bearing of line ‘AB’ = 119°48’

Fore baring is less than 180° so we calculate back bearing by adding 180°. If fore bearing greater than 180° than we subtract 180° from it.

Back bearing of line AB = 180°+〖119°48〗^’=〖299°48〗^’

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. In closed traverse sum of included angle should be (2n-4)×90°.

n→ No. of sides.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. Per capita water demand is annual average amount of daily water required by one person.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. Buston formula for estimating water required for fire demand ▭(Q=5663√P)

Where Q = l/min.

P = population (in thousands)

S7. Ans.(d)

Sol. An Aquiclude is a geological formation which contains a large amount of water but it does not permit water through it and also does not yield water. It is highly porous but impermeable. Ex. clay.

S8. Ans.(b)

Sol. pH of incoming water = 7.2

pH of outgoing water = 8.4

Average pH value of water =?

pH = – log [H+]

7.2 = – log [H+]

Tanking anti log-

[H+] = 10^(-7.2)———— (1)

pH = – log [H+]

8.4 = – log [H+]

Tanking anti log-

[H+] = 10^(-8.4)———— (2)

Average concentration of [H+] = (10^(-7.2)+10^(-8.4))/2

Average pH = – log (10^(-7.2)+10^(-8.4))/2

= – log [3.35384×10^(-8) ]

= -(-7.47445762)

= 7.474

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. Difference in measure in pressure h=x((S_m/S_0 )-1)

S10. 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
