Machine Drawing Internship Test

Intern has to take Machine Drawing internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Machine Drawing topic.

1. _______ is an object seen by a human eye.
(A) Perspective view
(B) Axonometric view
(C) Orthogonal view
(D) Isometric view
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: An object seen by a human eye is perspective view. In an orthographic view, the object is seen from different directions. The object is first rotated in horizontal plane about vertical axis to make an angle with the picture plane in Isometric view, which is a type of axonometric view.

2. Cost of manufacturing is ____________
(A) Inversely proportional to the amount of tolerance specified
(B) Directly proportional to the amount of tolerance specified
(C) Does not depends on tolerance specified
(D) Does depends non-linearly
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Generally tolerance is provided in the narrow region, however, narrower the tolerance more difficult it is to manufacture a component thus the cost of manufacturing does depend on the tolerance specified and it is inversely proportional t0 the tolerance provided.

3. Which of the following option is not expressing the freehand sketch method of preparing drawing?
(A) Sketching is done with pencil and paper
(B) Lines may not be the exact length in such drawings
(C) It is good in learning process
(D) In sketching, circles are drawn with compass
View Answer

Answer: D

(B) False
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Standards are available for any machine components and also for drawings.

In India, BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) has been assigned for standardizing the machine components for interchangeability of parts.

5. The position and orientation of the UCS origin is controlled by ________
(A) UCS command
(B) UCSICON command
(C) VIEW command
(D) MOVE command
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Position and orientation of the origin are user coordinate system is controlled by UCS command. VIEW command is used to display the view dialogue box only. MOVE is the command used to move a drawing from one place to another.
