(a) 50 ppm
(b) 100 ppm
(c) 150 ppm

(a) Statement 3 only
(b) Statement 2 only
(c) Statement 1, 2 and 3 only
(d) Statement 1 only

(a) 1/5th of mean dimension
(b) 2/5th of mean dimension
(c) 3/5th of mean dimension
(d) 4/5th of mean dimension
Q7. While estimating for plastering, usually no deduction is made for –
(a) Ends of beams
(b) Small opening upto 0.5 sq. m.
(c) End of rafters
(d) All the above

(b) 16T/(πD^3 )
(c) 32T/(πD^4 )
(d) 32T/(πD^3 )
Q9. If the undisturbed strength of a soil sample is 50 units while the remolded strength is 20 units, then what is the sensitivity of this soil?
Q10. Which one of the following assumptions of Bernoulli’s theorem is not correct?
(a) Flow should not be unsteady
(b) Flow should be continuous
(c) The fluid should be compressible
(d) Flow should be frictionless
|Soft water||0 – 60|
|Moderate hard water||61- 120|
|Hard water||121 – 180|
|Very hard water||≥ 181|
Sol. When telescope is rotated about vertical axis called swinging of theodolite. When theodolite moved rightward then its known as right swing & when left word then its known as left swing. Left word swing of theodolite is neglected because in left swing reading value increases clockwise.
Sol. Distemper is used to coat interior surface not exposed to weather. It is made with base as white chalk and thinner as water.
Coefficient of compressibility — m^2/kN
Coefficient of consolidation — m^2/sec
Coefficient of volume compressibility — m^2/kN
Sol. Double reinforced beam provide. –
– Depth of the beam restricted.
– Increasing moment carrying capacity.
– Safety against reversal of stress.
– Reduce deflection of beam.
Sol. An aggregate is said to be flaky it the percentage of particle having their least size smaller than 3/5th of their mean dimension.
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)
Sol. Sensitivity=(undisturbed strength)/(remalded strength)
Sol. There are some assumptions for Bernoulli’s theorem
(1) The flow is steady.
(2) The flow is incompressible.
(3) The flow is frictionless
(4) The flow continuous
(5) The flow should be irrotational or rotational along streamline.
