a) Body length
b) Flute length
c) Lip length
d) Overall length

Explanation: Body length is the length measured along the axis between the dead centre and start of neck. Flute length is the length measured parallel to the axis between the dead centre and the point of termination of flute near the neck.

2. Length measured parallel to the axis between the dead centre and the point of termination of flute near the neck is known as
a) Body length
b) Flute length
c) Lip length
d) Overall length

Explanation: Flute length is the length measured parallel to the axis between the dead centre and the point of termination of flute near the neck. Body length is the length measured along the axis between the dead centre and start of neck.

3. In twist drill, distance measured between the chisel edge corner and the outer corner is known as
a) Body length
b) Flute length
c) Lip length
d) Overall length

Explanation: Lip length is the length measured between the chisel edge corner and the outer corner. Body length is the length measured along the axis between the dead centre and start of a neck.

4. In twist drills, length measured along the axis between the dead centre and the extreme end of the tang is known as
a) Body length
b) Flute length
c) Lip length
d) Overall length

Explanation: Overall length is the length measured along the axis between the dead centre and the extreme end of the tang. Body length is the length measured along the axis between the dead centre and start of neck.

6. Web taper is also known as
a) Body length
c) Depth of body clearance
d) Core taper

Explanation: Core taper is the increase in core thickness. Web taper is also known as core taper.

7. Measure of increase in web thickness or core thickness, starting from the minimum at the point end to the maximum at the shank end of twist drill
a) Body length
c) Depth of body clearance
d) Core taper

Explanation: Core taper or web taper is the measure of the increase in web thickness or core thickness, starting from the minimum at the point end to the maximum at the shank end of twist drill.

a) Body length
c) Depth of body clearance
d) Core taper

Explanation: Lead helix is the axial distance measured between two corresponding points on a flute in its one complete turn in twist drill.

9. Rake angle of drill is also as
a) Taper angle
b) Friction angle
c) Helix angle
d) None of the mentioned

Explanation: Helix angle of drill is also known as rake angle. Lead helix is the axial distance measured between two corresponding points on a flute in its one complete turn in twist drill.
