This set of Engineering Drawing Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Drawing Sheet Layout and Sheet Folding”.

1. In the drawing sheet which side of the borderlines more space is kept for the purpose of filing or binding when possible?
a) Left-hand side
b) Topside
c) Right-hand side
d) Bottom side

Explanation: Borderlines are drawn in the drawing to clearly specify working space. While drawing borderlines, for filing or binding the drawings some extra space is left on the left-hand side of the drawing sheet.

a) 841 X 1189
b) 594 X 841
c) 420 X 594
d) 450 X 625

Explanation: As per the Bureau of Indian Standards (B.I.S) SP: 46(2003), some drawing sheets sizes are given preferred standard sheet designations. For A2 sheet designation, trimmed size dimensions are 420 X 594mm.

3. For the sheets A0 and A1, what is the width of the border?
a) 10mm
b) 20mm
c) 15mm
d) 5mm

Explanation: Borderlines are drawn in the drawing to clearly specify working space. For the sheets of designation A0 and A1, we keep the border width as 20mm as per the B.I.S recommendations.

a) 10mm
b) 20mm
c) 15mm
d) 5mm

5. Which of the following is used for positioning of the drawing sheet on the drawing board?
a) The grid system
b) Borders
c) Orientation marks
d) Folding marks

Explanation: On the drawing sheet four orientation marks are made for the correct positioning on the drawing board for the purpose of reproduction. The orientation mark made on the drawing sheet coincides with the drawing board and helps incorrect positioning of the sheet.

6. The grid reference system is also called a zone system.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: Grid reference system is used in drawing sheets for the easy location to detail the drawing or to mention alterations. It is also called a zone system as the grids divide the sheets into zones.

a) A, B, C, D,…
b) a, b, c, d,…
c) 1, 2, 3, 4,..
d) i, ii, iii, iv,…

Explanation: Grid reference system is used in drawing sheets for the easy location to detail the drawing or to mention alterations. The grid reference system along the length is referred by numerals 1, 2, 3, 4…

8. Grids along the width are referred by which of the following types?
a) A, B, C, D,…
b) a, b, c, d,…
c) 1, 2, 3, 4,..
d) i, ii, iii, iv,…

Explanation: Grid reference system is used in drawing sheets for the easy location to detail the drawing or to mention alterations. The grid reference systems along the width are referred by numerals A, B, C, D…

9. In the drawing sheet which side is given space for the title block?
a) Left-hand side
b) Topside
c) Right-hand side
d) Bottom side

Explanation: Particulars of the drawing sheet are mentioned in the title lock. For the sake of title, block space is left on the right-hand side of the drawing sheet. The title block is an important part of the drawing sheet layout.

10. Names of the persons who have designed and drawn the drawing are mentioned in ________
a) Borders
b) Margins
c) Title box
d) Grid system

Explanation: Title box contains the details of the drawing, here we include the names of the persons who have designed and drawn. It even contains the main particulars of the drawings.

11. After folding the sheet what is visible on the top?
a) Drawing
b) Dimensions
c) Title box
d) Alterations

Explanation: Drawings are folded for securing them; they are folded in two ways. One is used when the drawings are filed and the other when they are stored in cabinets. In both cases after folding the drawing sheet, the title box is visible on the top.

12. Nine folds are allowed to which of the sheet designation when they are filed?
a) A0
b) A1
c) A2
d) A3

Explanation: When filing a drawing sheet, the final dimensions after folding should be 297mm X 190mm. The dimensions of the A0 sheet are 841 X 1189mm. So the possible and the most appropriate number of foldings count is nine.

13. Seven folds are allowed to which of the sheet designation when they are preserved in the cabinet?
a) A0
b) A1
c) A2
d) A3

Explanation: When filing a drawing sheet, the final dimensions after folding should be 297mm X 210mm. The dimensions of the A0 sheet are 841 X 1189mm. So the possible and the most appropriate number of foldings counts are seven.

14. When a drawing sheet is stored in the cabinet, which of the following should be the final dimension of the fold? (In mm)
a) 297 X 190
b) 297 X 210
c) 220 X 190
d) 220 X 210

Explanation: When folding a drawing sheet that is should be stored in the cabinet its final folding dimensions should be 297mm X 210mm. According to the different sizes of the drawing, sheets are folded as suitable.

15. When a drawing sheet is filed or bound, which of the following should be the final dimension of the fold? (In mm)
