Let f(x) = mx + c

Now, f(x) = 29 at x = -2

And f(x) = 39 at x = 3

29 = -2m + c

39 = 3m + c

Solving above two equations, we get

m = 2 and c = 33

So f(x) = 2x + 33

Therefore, at x = 5, f(x) = 2 X 5 + 33 = 43

4. The Tamil version of ______ John Abraham-starrer Madras Cafe _____ cleared by

the Censor Board with no cuts last week, but the films distributors _______ no takers

among the exhibitors for a release in Tamil Nadu _____ this Friday

(B) a, was, found, at

(C) the ,was, found, on

(D) a, being , find at

(A) VXDQ

(B) VZDQ

(C) VZDP

(D) UXDQ

Clearly, each letter is replaced by the third following letter in the coded form as R is

replaced by U and so on. Hence on changing each letter to third following letter,

SWAN can be written as VZDQ

1. Workability of concrete can be measured using slump, compaction factor and Vebe

time. Consider the following statements for workability of concrete:

(i) As the slump increases, the Vebe time increases

(ii) As the slump increases, the compaction factor increases

Which of the following is TRUE ?

(A) Both (i) and (ii) are True

(B) Both (i) and (ii) are False

(C) (i) is True and (ii) is False

(D) (i) is False and (ii) is True

1) Vebe time is defined as the time required for the shape of concrete to change from

slump cone shape to cylindrical shape in seconds. Clearly, it decreases if the

workability of concrete is more i.e. it has more water. As the slump increases, the

workability increases and hence the Vebe time decreases.

2) Compaction factor or degree of compaction is defined as,

CF =

Weight of Fully Compacted Concrete

workability. Hence as the slump increases, the compaction factor increases.

Variance of X is given by

Var (X) = pX 2 - ( pX)2

Otherwise (n)

q = 0.4

1 q = 0.6

pX = 0.4 x 0 + 0.6 x 1 + 0 x n = 0.6

3. In a two-dimensional steady flow field, in a certain region of the x-y plane, the

velocity component in the x-direction is given by v x = x2 and the density varies as

= 1/x . Which of the following is a valid expression for the velocity component in

the y-direction, v y ?

(A) vy = x/y

(B) vy = x/y

(C) vy = xy

(D) vy = xy

Ans (C) vy = xy

4. Two Triangular wedges are glued together as shown in the following figure. The

stress acting normal to the interface, n is _______ MPa.

Ans 0

n = x cos2 + y sin2

Here, x = 100 MPa (tensile); y = - 100 MPa (Compressive); = 450

On putting above values, we get

n = ( x + y )/2 = (100 100)/2 = 0

5. For the beam shown below, the value of the support moment M is _____ kN-m.

Ans 5

Splitting the beam at internal hinge and as the beam is symmetrical we get,

M BC + 10 x 1 = 0

M BC = -10 kNm (anticlockwise)

Now at B, M BA + M BC = 0

M BA = - M BC = 10 kNm (clockwise)

M AB = (2EI/3) (2 A + B ) + M FAB

M BA = (2EI/3) (2 B + A ) + M FBA

In this case, M FAB = M FBA = 0; A = 0

M = M AB = M BA /2 = 10/2 = 5 kNm (clockwise)

6. The composition of an air-entrained concrete is given below:

Water

: 184 kg/m3

: 368 kg/m3

Sand

: 606 kg/m3

Coarse aggregate

: 1155 kg/m3

Assume the specific gravity of OPC, sand and coarse aggregate to be 3.14, 2.67 and

7. In a catchment, there are four rain gauge stations, P,Q,R, and S. Normal annual

precipitation values at these stations are 780 mm, 850 mm, 920 mm, and 980 mm,

respectively. In the year 2013, stations Q,R, and S, were operative but P was not.

Using the normal ratio method, the precipitation at station P for the year 2013 has

been estimated as 860 mm. If the observed precipitation at stations Q and R for the

year 2013 were 930 mm and 1010 mm, respectively, what was the observed

precipitation (in mm) at station S for that year ?

Ans 1093.43

Using normal ratio method and equating ratios of observed precipitation to normal

annual precipitation we get precipitation at station P (P p ) as

8. A non-homogeneous soil deposit consists of a silt layer sandwiched between a finesand layer at top and a clay layer below. Permeability of the silt layer is 10 times the

permeability of the clay layer and one-tenth of the permeability of the sand layer.

Thickness of the silt layer is 2 times the thickness of the sand layer and two-third of

the thickness of the clay layer. The ratio of equivalent horizontal and equivalent

vertical permeability of the deposit is ________.

Ans 10.96

From the given data, the condition will be:

K h = ( 100 K x H + 10 K x 2 H + K x 3 H ) / ( H + 2 H + 3 H)

K h = 20.5 K

K v = ( H + 2 H + 3 H) / (
