Sample Mechanical Engineering Technology Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The ____________________ chisel is used for general chiseling.

    • A.

      Flat

    • B.

      Diamond point

    • C.

      Cape

    • D.

      Half round

    Correct Answer
    A. Flat
    Explanation
    A flat chisel is used for general chiseling because it has a straight cutting edge that allows for precise and controlled cuts. It is versatile and can be used for various tasks such as shaping, smoothing, and removing material. The flat shape of the chisel provides stability and even pressure distribution, making it ideal for general chiseling purposes.

  • 2. 

    Which layout tool is used to mark lines parallel to a finished edge?

    • A.

      Steel rule

    • B.

      Odd-leg caliper

    • C.

      Inside caliper

    • D.

      Outside caliper

    Correct Answer
    B. Odd-leg caliper
    Explanation
    The odd-leg caliper is a layout tool that is used to mark lines parallel to a finished edge. It consists of two legs of different lengths, one fixed and one adjustable, which can be set to the desired distance. By placing the fixed leg against the finished edge and adjusting the adjustable leg to the desired parallel distance, lines can be accurately marked parallel to the edge. The steel rule, inside caliper, and outside caliper are not specifically designed for marking parallel lines.

    The ______________ is used to scribe arcs, circles and step-off distances on a work piece.

    • A.

      Scriber

    • B.

      Marker

    • C.

      Protractor

    • D.

      Divider

    Correct Answer
    D. Divider
    Explanation
    A divider is a tool commonly used in woodworking and metalworking to scribe arcs, circles, and step-off distances on a workpiece. It consists of two pointed legs connected by a hinge, allowing the user to adjust the distance between the points. By placing one point on a fixed position and using the other to scribe, the user can create accurate measurements and markings on the workpiece. This makes the divider an essential tool for layout and precision work.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The part of the file used to prevent the handle from splitting is called the _________________.

    • A.

      Tang

    • B.

      Edge

    • C.

      Ferrule

    • D.

      Handle

    Correct Answer
    C. Ferrule
    Explanation
    A ferrule is a part of a file that is used to prevent the handle from splitting. It is typically a metal or plastic band that is placed at the base of the handle to reinforce it and provide stability. The ferrule helps to distribute the force applied to the file evenly and prevents the handle from breaking or splitting under pressure.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Files are layout tools made from high carbon steel

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Files are not made from high carbon steel. They are made from hardened steel, which is a type of alloy steel. High carbon steel is used for making tools like knives and chisels, but not files. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Safety is the state of being free from harm or danger.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Safety refers to the condition of being protected from harm or danger. When something is in a state of safety, it means that it is free from any potential harm or danger. Therefore, the statement "Safety is the state of being free from harm or danger" is true.
