View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: A latrine is a toilet or an even simpler facility that is used as a toilet within a sanitation system. For example, it can be a communal trench in the earth in a camp to be used as emergency sanitation, a hole in the ground (pit latrine), or more advanced designs, including pour-flush systems.
The term “latrine” is still commonly used in emergency sanitation situations, as well as in army camps. Nowadays, the word “toilet” is more commonly used than “latrine”, except for simple systems like “pit latrine” or “trench latrine”.
The use of latrines was a major advance in sanitation over more basic practices such as open defecation and helped control the spread of many waterborne diseases.

c) L.D (1 + s2)1/2
d) 2 L.D (1 + s2)1/2

Answer: c
Explanation: An embankment dam is a large artificial dam. It is typically created by the placement and compaction of a complex semi-plastic mound of various compositions of soil, sand, clay, or rock. It has a semi-pervious waterproof natural covering for its surface and a dense, impervious core. This makes such a dam impervious to surface or seepage erosion. Such a dam is composed of fragmented independent material particles. The friction and interaction of particles binds the particles together into a stable mass rather than by the use of a cementing substance.

6. For 100 sq. m cement concrete (1 : 2: 4) 4 cm thick floor, the quantity of cement required, is ________
a) 0.90 m3
b) 0.94 m3
c) 0.98 m3
d) 0.98 m3
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Volume – area * thickness.
So, 100*.04 = 4 cubic metre, 10% for uneven surface.
4 * 10% = .04 = 4.4cubic metre.
50% for dry mortar, 4.4 * 50% = 2.2.
= 6.6cubic meter.
Cement = 6.6/(1 + 2 + 4) = .94 cubic meter.

Explanation: Stone blocks used in masonry can be dressed or rough, though in both examples: corners, door and window jambs, and similar areas are usually dressed. Stone masonry utilizing dressed stones is known as ashlar masonry, whereas masonry using irregularly shaped stones is known as rubble masonry. Both rubble and ashlar masonry can be laid in coursed rows of even height through the careful selection or cutting of stones, but a great deal of stone masonry is uncoursed.
