View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: The vane shear test consists of equipment with four steel blades and it is inserted in the sample and rotated at 0.1° per second using torque. The reading before rotating is the initial reading and final reading is taken when the sample fails. The difference between these gives the angle of torque.

5. In a drained test, the drainage is permitted during the application of ______
(A) No stress
