S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. ▭(S α d^2 )
S→ spacing
d→ Diameter of bars
S_2/S_1 =(d_2/d_1 )^2
S_2=S_1 (d_2/d_1 )^2
▭(S_2=14.4 cm)

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. height of hydraulic jump in model (L_m )=10 cm
Scale (L_P/L_m )=36
Height of jump in protype = ?
L_P/L_m =36
L_P=36×10=360 cm
▭(L_P=3.6 m)

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. We are considering that the whole period of rainfall to be the period of rainfall excess.
Total Precipitation (P) = Σ Intensity × duration
▭(P=81 mm.)
Runoff (R) = 39 mm
Duration of rainfall (t) = 6 hrs.
ϕ – index = (P-R)/R
∵ Ist & last hours are not period of rainfall excess as rainfall intensity ≤ϕ-index
Hence,ϕ-index=((81-7-3)-39)/4=32/4=8 mm\/hour.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Stretcher bond consist stretcher in each course. This bond is used in the construction of 10 cm. thick wall or partition wall or cavity wall etc.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Ultimate bearing capacity (q_u ) = CN_c+ qN_q + 0.5B_r N_r
For cohesive soil
C=10 kN\/m²
Net ultimate bearing capacity (q_nu ) =?
= 10 ×5.7
=57 kN/m²

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The concrete in which no reinforcement is provided called plain concrete. Plain concrete is strong in taking Compressive stresses. The tensile strength of concrete is 10 to 15% of compressive strength.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Reduced bearing = N 60° W
Length = 100 m
Latitude = 100 cos 60°= 50 m
Departure = – 100 sin 60° = – 86.6 m

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. G=2.50
Critical hydraulic gradient (i)=(G-1)/(1+e)=(2.50-1)/(1+0.65)

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. For estimation of painting are on corrugate sheets then plain are of sheets should be increased by following percentage
Corrugate steel sheets → 10%
Semi-corrugated asbestos cement sheets → 10%
Corrugated asbestos cement sheets → 20%

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, Total center Length (L) = 40.10m.
Breadth (B) = 1.10 m
Depth (d) = 1.0 m.
Estimate earthwork by center line method
= L × B × d
= 40.10 × 1.10 × 1.0
= 44.11 m³
