      Recorded on the official township plat.

    • C.

      Changeable.

    • D.

      Unchangeable.

    • E.

      Both A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. Unchangeable.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "unchangeable." This means that the accepted boundaries of public lands cannot be altered or modified. They are fixed and cannot be changed according to the opinion of a licensed surveyor or recorded on the official township plat.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What corners are subject to discrepancies between their true location and their location on the field notes?

    • A.

      Section corners and quarter-section corners.

    • B.

      Section corners, quarter-section corners, and township corners.

    • C.

      Corners in the north and west tiers of the township.

    • D.

      All corners in the United States Public Land Survey System.

    • E.

      None of the Above.

    Correct Answer
    B. Section corners, quarter-section corners, and township corners.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Section corners, quarter-section corners, and township corners. These corners are subject to discrepancies between their true location and their location on the field notes because the United States Public Land Survey System, which is used to establish property boundaries, is not always accurate. Errors in measurements, surveying techniques, or human error can result in inconsistencies between the recorded location and the actual location of these corners.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose the answer that best describes the rule used to set a quarter-quarter-section corner not set in the original survey.

    • A.

      On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 18, and midway between them.

    • B.

      On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 18, and a proportional 20 chains between them.

    • C.

      On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 17, and midway between them.

    • D.

      On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 17, and a proportional 20 chains between them.

    • E.

      None of the Above.

    Correct Answer
    C. On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 17, and midway between them.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "On a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 17, and midway between them." This answer describes the rule for setting a quarter-quarter-section corner that was not set in the original survey. It states that the corner should be placed on a line connecting the south corner of section 18 and the southwest corner of section 17, and it should be positioned midway between them. This means that the corner is located at the exact midpoint between these two corners, ensuring accuracy and consistency in the survey.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose the answer that best describes the rule used to establish the center line of a fractional section.

    • A.

      Beginning from the proper quarter-section corner in a nearly cardinal direction to the meander line.

    • B.

      Beginning from the proper quarter-section corner to the meander corner.

    • C.

      Beginning from the proper meander corner in a nearly cardinal direction to the section line.

    • D.

      Beginning from the proper meander corner to the quarter-section corner.

    • E.

      None of the Above.

    Correct Answer
    A. Beginning from the proper quarter-section corner in a nearly cardinal direction to the meander line.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Beginning from the proper quarter-section corner in a nearly cardinal direction to the meander line." This answer describes the rule used to establish the center line of a fractional section, which involves starting from the appropriate quarter-section corner and proceeding in a nearly cardinal direction towards the meander line. This rule ensures that the center line is properly established within the fractional section.

    An ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey is for the purpose of insuring title to real property free and clear of survey matters except...

    • A.

      What is not shown on the survey.

    • B.

      What is disclosed by the survey.

    • C.

    • D.

      What can not be disclosed by the survey.

    • E.

      Both A and D.

    Correct Answer
    B. What is disclosed by the survey.
    Explanation
    An ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey is conducted to ensure that the title to a property is free from any survey-related issues, except for what is disclosed by the survey. This means that any information or findings discovered during the survey process will be included in the survey report and disclosed to the parties involved. The purpose of this is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the property's boundaries, easements, encroachments, and other relevant details, allowing for a clear and accurate assessment of the property's title. Therefore, the correct answer is "what is disclosed by the survey."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the allowable relative positional accuracy for measurements controlling land boundaries on ALTA/ACSM land title surveys?

    • A.

      0.07 ft + 20 mm

    • B.

      0.07 ft + 50 mm

    • C.

      20 mm + 20 ppm.

    • D.

      20 mm + 50 ppm.

    • E.

      Both B and D.

    Correct Answer
    D. 20 mm + 50 ppm.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 20 mm + 50 ppm. This means that the allowable relative positional accuracy for measurements controlling land boundaries on ALTA/ACSM land title surveys is 20 mm plus an additional 50 parts per million. This combination of accuracy ensures that the measurements are precise and reliable for determining land boundaries.
