    Correct Answer
    B. Occupant load
    Explanation
    The given statement is referring to the calculation of occupant load. Occupant load is determined by dividing the floor area assigned to a specific use by the unit area per occupant. This calculation helps determine the number of people that can safely occupy a space based on its size. Therefore, the correct answer is occupant load.

  • 22. 

    That part of any wall entirely above the roof line

      Fire wall

    • B.

      Curtain wall

    • C.

      Parapet wall

    • D.

      Retaining wall

    Correct Answer
    C. Parapet wall
    Explanation
    A parapet wall is a low protective wall or railing that is built along the edge of a roof, balcony, or terrace. It is designed to prevent people from falling off the edge and also serves as a barrier against wind and other elements. In the given context, the part of the wall that is entirely above the roof line refers to the parapet wall. The other options, such as fire wall, curtain wall, and retaining wall, do not specifically refer to the part of the wall above the roof line.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Any wall used to resist the lateral displacement of any material; a subsurface wall built to resist the lateral pressure of internal loads.

    • A.

      Party wall

    • B.

      Curtain wall

    • C.

      Foundation wall

    • D.

      Retaining wall

    Correct Answer
    D. Retaining wall
    Explanation
    A retaining wall is a wall built to resist the lateral pressure of internal loads. It is specifically designed to hold back soil or other materials and prevent them from sliding or eroding. This type of wall is commonly used in landscaping and construction projects to create level surfaces or prevent erosion on slopes. Unlike party walls, curtain walls, and foundation walls, which serve different purposes, a retaining wall is specifically designed to resist lateral displacement and pressure.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Any wall which subdivides a building so as to resist the spread of fire, by starting at the foundation and extending continuously through the storey to, or above the roof.

    • A.

      Party wall

    • B.

      Foundation wall

    • C.

      Firewall

    • D.

      Nonbearing wall

    Correct Answer
    C. Firewall
    Explanation
    A firewall is a type of wall that is designed to resist the spread of fire within a building. It starts at the foundation and extends continuously through the storey to, or above the roof. This means that it acts as a barrier, preventing fire from spreading from one area of the building to another. A party wall, foundation wall, and nonbearing wall do not necessarily have the same fire-resistant properties as a firewall, making them incorrect choices for this explanation.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    The enclosing wall of an iron or steel or the nonbearing portion of an enclosed wall between piers.

    • A.

      Curtain wall

    • B.

      Fire wall

    • C.

      Exterior wall

    • D.

      Faced wall

    Correct Answer
    A. Curtain wall
    Explanation
    A curtain wall is a nonbearing portion of an enclosed wall between piers. It is typically made of iron or steel and serves as the outer covering of a building. Unlike a fire wall, which is specifically designed to prevent the spread of fire, a curtain wall does not have any fire-resistant properties. Similarly, an exterior wall refers to any wall that is exposed to the exterior of a building, while a faced wall refers to a wall that has a decorative facing material. Therefore, the most appropriate term to describe the given description is curtain wall.
