    Explanation
    A dormer window is a vertical window that is set below the line of a sloped roof. It is typically protruding from the roof and provides additional light and ventilation to the attic or upper level of a building. Unlike skylights, which are installed on the roof and allow light from above, dormer windows are installed on the sloped part of the roof and bring light from the side. They are commonly used in houses with attic spaces to maximize natural light and create a more functional and livable space.

    Explanation
    A clerestory is a high window above eye level that is designed to bring outside light, fresh air, or both into the inner space. It is typically found in buildings with high ceilings or roofs, such as churches, museums, or large commercial spaces. The purpose of a clerestory is to provide natural light and ventilation to the interior, while also maintaining privacy and security. Unlike skylights or dormers, which are located on the roof, a clerestory window is positioned higher up on the wall, allowing for a greater amount of light to enter the space.

    Ideal window type for mid-rise building?

    • A.

      Casement

    • B.

      Awning

    • C.

      Sliding

    • D.

      Fixed

    Correct Answer
    B. Awning
    Explanation
    The ideal window type for a mid-rise building is awning. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, allowing for ventilation while keeping rainwater out. They are well-suited for mid-rise buildings as they provide good airflow and can be easily operated. Additionally, awning windows offer better energy efficiency compared to other window types, as they create a tight seal when closed.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    For high rise building, what type of window is the least effective?

    • A.

      Awning

    • B.

      Sliding

    • C.

      Swing

    • D.

      Hopper

    Correct Answer
    D. Hopper
    Explanation
    Hopper windows are the least effective type of window for high-rise buildings. Hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and open inward, which can be problematic in high-rise buildings due to the strong wind forces at higher elevations. The inward opening of hopper windows can create a suction effect, making it difficult to close them properly and potentially causing air leakage. Additionally, hopper windows have a limited opening angle, limiting the amount of ventilation they can provide compared to other window types like awning or sliding windows.

      Underlayment of bricks are too thick, light can not penetrate

    Correct Answer
    C. It is the pharaohs tomb not a temple
    Explanation
    The Egyptian pyramids don't have doors and windows because they were built as tombs for the pharaohs, not as temples or living spaces. The focus was on providing a secure and enclosed space for the pharaoh's burial and afterlife, rather than on allowing light or ventilation into the structure. Additionally, the thick underlayment of bricks and the strong and fine sandstorms in the desert would make it impractical to have small openings that could potentially compromise the integrity of the structure.

      Request to the supplier if there are size fits the opening

    Correct Answer
    A. Install a solid wood strip on the door frames equal to the gap
    Explanation
    Installing a solid wood strip on the door frames equal to the gap would be the best possible solution in this situation. This would fill the gap between the leaves of the door and allow them to meet in the middle, resolving the problem with installing the lock. The workmanship of the door is already above standard, so adjusting the jambs or requesting a different size from the supplier may not be necessary. An astragal could be an alternative solution, but it is not mentioned as the best possible solution in this case.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Add a suitable plate on the gap at least 5mm on each side
    Explanation
    To remedy the gap of about 10mm in the installed door frame, the best solution would be to add a suitable plate on the gap, ensuring that it extends at least 5mm on each side. This would effectively fill the gap and provide a more secure and stable frame for the door. Moving the frame by reconstructing the opening may not be feasible or practical, and using an astragal or choosing none of the given options may not adequately address the issue of the gap.

    B. Install the frame before finishing the the opening
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to install the frame before finishing the opening. This is because installing the frame first ensures that it is securely in place before any finishing work is done. If the finishing is done first, it may be difficult to properly install the frame and ensure its stability. By installing the frame first, the opening can be properly measured and prepared to ensure a proper fit for the frame. Once the frame is securely in place, the finishing work can be done around it to complete the installation.

      Sliding

    • B.

      Casement

    • C.

    • D.

      Louver

    Correct Answer
    B. Casement
    Explanation
    Casement windows are not recommended to be used in an area where the opening of the window is in a hallway. This is because casement windows open outwards, requiring space for the window to swing open. In a hallway, where space is limited, a casement window would obstruct the pathway and potentially cause inconvenience or safety hazards. Therefore, other types of windows such as sliding, picture, or louver windows would be more suitable for this situation.
