S1. Ans.(d)


Plastering is measured in terms of m².If,

(a) opening area < 0.5 m² (No deduction is applied)

(b) opening area is between 0.5 m² – 3m², then (single side deduction is applied)

(c) opening area > 3 m², then (double side deduction is applied)


S2. Ans.(d)


Root slabs, floors, D.P.C, form work are measured in terms of m².


S3. Ans.(b)


Damp proof course (D.P.C) measured in terms of m².


S4. Ans.(c)


Unit weight of R.C.C. = 2500 kg/m³

Unit weight of plain cement concrete = 2400 kg/


S5. Ans.(d)


Generally, the brick work is measured in terms of m³. but in case of honey comb brick work, brick flat soling, half brick wall or partition wall then, it is measured in m².


S6. Ans.(d)


Quantity of steel (in kg.) per meter length is given by =

Where d = diameter of steel rod (in mm.)

L = length (in m.)

M = Quantity of steel (in kg.)

Now =

= 0.00618×(10)²

= 0.618 ≃ 0.62 kg


S7. Ans.(d)


Reinforcement of R.C.C. works measured in terms of per quintal.


S8. Ans.(a)


Broken glass coping measured in terms of square meter while reinforced brick work measured in terms of cubic meter.


S9. Ans.(d)


The unit of measurement for mass concrete is cubic meter.

(a) The correct volume is measured nearest up to = 0.01 m³.

(b) The correct area is measured nearest up to = 0.01 m².

(c) The length, width and depth are measured nearest up to = 0.01m.
