INSTRUCTIONS

1.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE EXAMINATION, YOU SHOULD


CHECK THAT THIS TEST BOOKLET DOES NOT HAVE ANY UNPRINTED OR TORN
OR MISSING PAGES OR ITEMS ETC. IF SO, GET IT REPLACED BY A COMPLETE
TEST BOOKLET.

2.

ENCODE CLEARLY THE TEST BOOKLET SERIES A, B, C, ORDAS THE CASE MAY
BE IN THE APPROPRIATE PLACE IN THE ANSWER SHEET.
You have to enter your Roll Number on the
Test Booklet in the Box provided alongside.
DO NOT write anything else on the Test Booklet.
This Test Booklet contains 120 items (questions). Each item comprises four responses
(answers). You will select the response which you want to mark on the Answer Sheet. In
case you feel that there is more than one correct response, mark the response which you
consider the best. In any case, choose ONLY ONE response for each item.
You have to mark all your responses ONLY on the separate Answer Sheet provided. See
directions in the Answer Sheet.

All items carry equal marks.


BE(fore you proceed to mark in the Answer Sheet the response to various items in the Test
Booklet, you have to fill in some particulars in the Answer Sheet as per instructions sent to
you with your Admission Certificate.
After you have completed filling in all your responses on the Answer Sheet and the
examination has concluded, you should hand over to the Invigilator only the Answer Sheet.
You are permitted to take away with you the Test Booklet.
Sheets for rough work are appended in the Test Booklet at the end.

THERE WILL BE PENALTY FOR WRONG ANSWERS MARKED BY A CANDIDATE IN THE
OBJECTIVE TYPE QUESTION PAPERS.

There are four alternatives for the answer to every question. For each question for which a wrong
answer has been given by the candidate, one-third, (033) of the marks assigned to that question
will be deducted as penalty.
(ii} If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be: treated as a wrong answer even if one of
the given answers happens to be correct and there will be same penalty as above to that question.
(iii} If a question is left blank, i.e., no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty for
that question.

Reason {R)

Loss of head at a sudden


contractwn in a pipe is
smaller than the loss at a
sudden expanswn in the
ptp.:.
lncreas.: m turbulence
le"el is higher at a suddt:n
cxpanswn than at a
suddt:n contraction.
The dftciency of a
reciprocating pump is I 020 percent higher than
that of a centrilugal pump
for comparable dischargehead conditions.
The discharge from a
r.:dprocating pump is
dependent upon speed.
(Contd.)
www.examrace.com

104. Assertion (A) : In centrifugal pumps,


flow takes place from low
pressure zone to high
pressure zone.
Possibility of separation
Reason (R)
occurring in pumps can be
more; and characterizing
efficiency of pumps is less
than that of turbines.
105. Assertion (A): Inthecaseofwaterpower
plants, it is advisable to
provide the surge tank as
close to the turbine unit as
possible.
Purpose of surge tank is to
Reason (R)
provide the intended
protection for the portion
of the penstock which lies
on the upstream of it.
106. Assertion (A)
Fluorides should always
be present in drinking
water upto a value
1.5 mg/1.
Reason (R)
Such a water helps clean
the teeth well.
107; Assertion (A) : The duty of water
decreases as the point of
its measurement moves
away from the field of
application.
Reason (R)
Duty depends on soil
characteristics.
I 08. Assertion (A) : The BOD gets removed at
very
fast
rate
a
immediately after sewage
is discharged into a river.
A part of the BOD in the
Reason (R)
sewage is due to settleable
organic matter therein.
109. Assertion (A) : The bottom layers of
water in a deep reservoir
are usually not acceptable
as raw water in a water
supply system.
Reason (R)
The bottom water layers
may contain products of
anaerobic degradation.

II 0. Assertion (A) : Disinfection is the last


treatment given to water
before it is supplied to
consumers.
Reason (R)
Any other treatment after
disinfection
may
incidentally
also
contaminate the water.
I I I. Assertion (A} : Laterals of minimum
specified diameter m
sewerage systems have to
be laid at slopes designed
for self-cleaning velocity.
For
the
specified
Reason (R)
minimum lateral diameter
at specified slopes, a
minimum flow rate is not
essential to maintain selfcleansing velocity.
112. Assertion (A) : In non-cohesive soils,
settlement occurs immediately after application of
load.
The
settlement
1s
Reason (R)
attributed to volume
changes caused by lateral
yielding or shear strains
occurring in the soil.
113. Assertion (A) : In the secondary sedimentation tank of a
sewage treatment plant,
the settling particles form
a blanket which descends
and captures more
particles.
The particles are floReason (R)
cculant and in very high
concentration whenever
there 1s an efficient
working activated sludge,
or trickling filter, process.
114. Assertion (A) : Batter piles are provided
to resist lateral loads
coming onto structures.
The batter of batter piles
Reason (R)
is he Ipful in converting a
part of the applied lateral
load
into
axial
compressive load on the
batter piles.

115. Assertion (A)

The angle made b) the

called dip.
In
th.:
northern
Reason (R)
hemisphere, the south end
of the needle dips
downwards; and in the
southern hemisphere. the
north end of the needle
dips downwards.
116. Assertion (A) . The diurnal vanation is
the variation of the
declination in a year hom
the mean position durmg
the year.
Rea~on (R)
The diurnal variation is
greater in summer than in
winter.
117 Assertion (A)
Reciprocal levelling is
adopted to decide the
precise diffen:ncc oflevd
between two pomt' at a
considerable distance
apart.
Reason (R)
Reciprocal
levelling
diminates errors du" to :
(i) Curvature
{ii) Refraction. and
(ii) Line of collimation
not being exactly
parallel to bubble
line.
