a)
b)
c)
d)

Explanation: Use is represented symbolically using . It is abbreviated as U. It is represented by a purple colour. It gives the meaning of ‘manipulating or causing a tool to do its function’.

6. What the symbol represents in a SIMO chart?
a) Disassemble
b) Respect
c) Plan
d) Grasp

Explanation: is used to represent the therblig ‘disassemble’. Its colour is light violet. It is abbreviated as DA. It represents the micromotion ‘separate two or more parts’.
