(a) 1.0 m
(a) 0.9 m
(c) 0.7 m
(d) 0.45 m

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. ▭(Coefficient of permeability (K)=100 D_10^2 )
▭(KαD_10^2 )

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
Specific yield (S_y) = 30%
Porosity (n) = 50%
Specific retention (SR) =?
30%+S_R= 50%

S3. Ans.(b)
σ_h1/σ_h2 =(P(2d)\/2t)/(pd\/2t)=2/1

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Rounded aggregates have poor interlocking bond hence they are not suitable for high strength concrete and pavements subjected to tension.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, conjugate depths y_1=0.4 m.
y_2=1.4 m.
E_L= ?
E_L=(y_2-y_1 )^3/(4y_1 y_2 )

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Combined correction due to curvature & Refraction (Cc) =0.0673 d^2
=0.0673 m
