Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. A horizontal layer of bricks or stones is termed as a course. The shorter face of the brick is called header and longer face of the brick is called stretcher.

S = Stretcher

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given,
Length of transition curve (L_s) = 80 m
Radius of the curve (R) = 320 m
Shift(s) = (L_s^2)/24R
=(80)^2/(24×320)
= 0.83 m

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. In design of lacing system for a built-up steel column, the maximum allowable slenderness ratio of a lacing bar is 145.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Astronomical survey → It is done to determine latitude, longitude, local mean time at any place on the earth surface. It is also done to understand heavenly bodies.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. The box cutting in road crust = 1000×8×(0.15+0.10) = 2000 m³.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, Length = 15m.
Depth = 3m.
Width = 5m.
Side slope = 1.5:1 (H:V)
Volume of earth work = sectional Area × Length
= (BD+SD^2 )×L
=[5×3+1.5×(3)^2 ]×15
=427.5 m^3.
