Passage : 2 For a period of more than two centuries paleontologists have been intrigued by the fossilized remains of pterosaurs, the first flying vertebartes. The issues, which puzzle them, are how these heavy creatures, having a wingspan of about 8-12 meters managed 1. As seen in the above passage scientists generally agree that: • the pterosaurs could fly over large distances because of their large wingspan. • a close evolutionary relationship can be seen between the pterosaurs and bats, when the structure of their skeletons is studied. C. • the study of the fossilized remains of the pterosaurs reveals how they solved the problem associated with powered flight • the pterosaurs were reptiles • Pterosaurs walked on all fours. Answer 4 2.

since they are more economical in material. especially where relatively light traffic has to be carried over long spans. which are shaped to accommodate them. The cables are normally made continuous through the tops of the towers. However.19 inch in diameter. on bridges with very long spans. and the whole cable may consist of a considerable number of such strands compacted and bound together with wire. whereas the strands of twisted wire can be erected as units. In constructing the cable. made of high-tensile steel. two distinct methods may be adopted. the strands then sometimes being twisted round a central strand to form the completed cable. The cables are composed of thousands of wires. and thence into the anchorage. provided that they are not so heavy as to be unmanageable. There are in existence suspension bridges with main spans of more than 3000 feet. In view of the enormous pull exerted by the heavy cables. and unless they can be . there are certain advantages in the parallel wire method of spinning the cable. where these exist. and clamped together at intervals. Two or three hundred of these wires. or mounted on rollers so that they move with any movement of the cables. the saddles being either fixed so that the cable may slide over them. since each wire or small group of wires must be spun and adjusted to the correct sag individually. This latter method obviously involves a much longer spinning operation. which are galvanized to resist corrosion. The wires may either be twisted into strands. and are extremely strong. their ends must be secured in firm anchorages. Or they may be spun parallel to each other. They bear on specially constructed saddles on the towers. down through side towers.Student Name: Subject Name: Reading comprehension Hall Ticket No: Test Name: Practice Test -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Instruction: Read the Passage Carefully and Answer the Questions "Suspension bridges are frequently constructed in preference to other types of bridges. are clamped together to form a single strand. the entire weight of the deck being supported from above by cables (usually only two or four in number) suspended between two towers on either side of the river. each of about 0.

Identify the statement from the following. being themselves rigid. Since these suspenders have to take the weight of the deck to which they are attached. One advantage of using the bracedchain suspenders is that they largely dispense with the need for a system of stiffening. the stiffening must be provided by trusses constructed at the level of the deck. gripping them firmly and excluding moisture from them." Q 1. cast-steel cable-bands are attached to the cables. At intervals along the main span. and from these bands suspenders of wire-rope or chains hang down. In the case of wire-rope suspenders. which are in turn connected by chains to an anchor-plate embedded in the base of the anchorage. the depth of the truss varying with length of the span. Which one of the following parts of a suspension bridge is not described in the passage? • high-tensile suspenders of chains attached to the deck • anchorages in which the heavy cables are firmly secured • high-tensile steel cables that support the deck • the deck supported by heavy cables Correct Answer : 4 Q 2. that does not give a true account of the passage: • we know of the advantages of suspension bridges from the passage • The passage among other things explains the advantages of the parallel wire method of spinning the cable • The passage also touches upon the advantages of a twisted wire method in making a cable . constructions of masonry or concrete must be provided strong enough to withstand the severe pressures put upon them. The cable strands are normally looped round strand-shoes. they must have a high tensile strength.embedded in sound natural rock. This stiffening is necessary to resist deformations of the deck of the bridge due to moving traffic loads and also to resist lateral pressures from wind.

Suspension bridges are preferred to other types of bridge in areas where: • The rivers are flanked by sound natural rock • It is not worth spending too much money since these are more economical in material • High-tensile and cast-steel is produced and is available locally • Long spans have to be covered by relatively light traffic Correct Answer : 4 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q 5. This passage mainly deals with: • The comparative advantages of suspension bridges over other types of bridges • The mechanism involved in the construction of a suspension bridge • The forming of heavy cable. used in the construction of a suspension bridge .• The passage highlights the advantages of the braced-wire suspenders Correct Answer : 2 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q 3. High-tensile steel is used in making wires that are used to form a cable to: • Ensure longevity and strength • Ensure elegance in appearance and for economy • Ensure resistance to deformations of the deck and lateral pressures from wind • Ensure resistance to corrosion and absorption of the pressure of enormous pull exerted by heavy cables Correct Answer : 4 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q 4.
