      Gloss

    • B.

      Latex

    • C.

      Undercoat

    Correct Answer
    B. Latex
    Explanation
    Latex paint dries quickest because it is water-based and has a lower solvent content compared to other types of paint. This allows the water to evaporate more quickly, resulting in a faster drying time. Gloss paint, on the other hand, contains more solvents and takes longer to dry. Undercoat paint is typically thicker and may require multiple coats, which also prolongs the drying process. Therefore, Latex paint is the correct answer as it dries the quickest.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of these will NOT prevent resin from bleeding out of wood?

    • A.

      Patent Knotting

    • B.

      French Polish

    • C.

      Oil-based Primer

    Correct Answer
    C. Oil-based Primer
    Explanation
    An oil-based primer will not prevent resin from bleeding out of wood. Resin is a sticky substance that can seep out of certain types of wood, causing discoloration or staining. Patent Knotting and French Polish are both techniques used to seal wood and prevent resin bleeding. However, an oil-based primer is not effective in blocking the resin from coming to the surface. Other types of primers, such as shellac-based or alcohol-based primers, are more suitable for this purpose.

      Walnut

    • B.

      Mahogany

    • C.

      Ash

    Correct Answer
    B. Mahogany
    Explanation
    Mahogany is unlikely to be attacked by woodworm because it contains natural oils and resins that act as a deterrent to wood-boring insects. These oils and resins make the wood less appealing and less susceptible to infestation. Additionally, the density and hardness of mahogany make it less prone to woodworm damage compared to other woods. Walnut and Ash, on the other hand, do not possess the same natural resistance to woodworm and are more susceptible to infestation.

  • 29. 

    Which of the following is a 'black light' paint?

    • A.

      Luminous

    • B.

      Fluorescent

    • C.

      Phosphorescent

    Correct Answer
    B. Fluorescent
    Explanation
    Fluorescent paint is considered a "black light" paint because it contains fluorescent pigments that emit visible light when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. This type of paint is commonly used in various applications such as creating glowing effects in art, signage, and special effects. Luminous and phosphorescent paints, on the other hand, do not require UV light to emit visible light. Luminous paint absorbs and stores light energy to emit a glow in the dark, while phosphorescent paint continues to emit light after being exposed to a light source.

      It permanently stains clothes

    Correct Answer
    A. It has a greasy, non-drying surface
    Explanation
    The main property of anti-burglar paint is that it has a greasy, non-drying surface. This means that when applied to surfaces such as walls or windows, the paint remains slippery and does not dry, making it difficult for burglars to gain a foothold and climb into a building. The greasy texture also makes it harder for them to grip onto surfaces, further deterring their attempts to break in.

    • A.

      Blue and yellow

    • B.

      White and purple

    • C.

      Yellow and purple

    Correct Answer
    A. Blue and yellow
    Explanation
    Blue and yellow are the primary colors that combine to create green. When blue and yellow pigments or light are mixed together, they create a secondary color, green. This is because blue absorbs all colors except blue, and yellow reflects only yellow. When these two colors are combined, the blue pigment absorbs all colors except yellow, and the yellow pigment reflects only yellow, resulting in the perception of green.
