    Explanation
    A ramp is a slope surface that rises and twists simultaneously. It is commonly used to provide a gradual incline for vehicles or individuals to access higher or lower levels. Unlike a simple slope, a ramp allows for both vertical ascent and horizontal movement. This makes it easier and safer for people or objects to move up or down the incline.

    The _____________ commonly used for transverse shear reinforcement in beam is not suitable for torsional reinforcement.

    • A.

      Closed Stirrups

    • B.

      U Stirrups

    Correct Answer
    B. U Stirrups
    Explanation
    U stirrups are commonly used for transverse shear reinforcement in beams. However, they are not suitable for torsional reinforcement. Torsional reinforcement requires a different type of reinforcement, such as closed stirrups or double reinforcement, to resist twisting forces. Hooks are typically used for anchoring reinforcement, but they are not directly related to transverse shear or torsional reinforcement.

    It is sometimes referred to as MULTIPLE CONNECTIONS where the loads are placed across the same voltage constituting a separate circuit. It is the standard arrangement for house wiring connections wherein the lights constitute one parallel grouping and the convenience wall outlets constitute the second parallel grouping.

    • A.

      Parallel Circuit

    • B.

      Series Circuit

    • C.

      Branch Circuit

    • D.

      Electric Circuit

    Correct Answer
    A. Parallel Circuit
    Explanation
    The given explanation describes a parallel circuit, where multiple loads are connected across the same voltage, forming separate circuits. This arrangement is commonly used in house wiring, where lights and wall outlets are grouped in parallel circuits. In a parallel circuit, each load receives the full voltage of the power source, and if one load fails, the others will continue to operate independently. This is different from a series circuit, where loads are connected in a single path, and if one load fails, the entire circuit is interrupted. A branch circuit is a term used to describe a portion of an electrical circuit that branches off from the main circuit. An electric circuit is a general term for a closed loop through which electric current flows.

    True or False. In a Parallel Circuit, the Voltage is the same, but the Current differs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a parallel circuit, the voltage across each branch is the same because they are connected directly across the same voltage source. However, the current flowing through each branch differs because the total current is divided among the branches based on their individual resistance. Therefore, the statement "In a Parallel Circuit, the Voltage is the same, but the Current differs" is true.

    • D.

      Width of the RROW

    Correct Answer
    D. Width of the RROW
    Explanation
    The setbacks for commercial, industrial, institutional, and recreational buildings vary depending on the width of the Right-of-Way (RROW). The RROW refers to the portion of land dedicated for public use, usually for roads or utilities. The width of the RROW determines the distance between the property line and the road, which in turn influences the setbacks required for buildings. A wider RROW allows for larger setbacks, providing more space between the road and the building. Conversely, a narrower RROW may result in smaller setbacks, limiting the distance between the road and the building.

    C. Steel Mallet
    Explanation
    The image shown is a steel mallet. A steel mallet is a type of hammer that has a head made of steel and is typically used in construction and woodworking. It is heavier and more durable than a regular hammer, making it suitable for tasks that require more force, such as driving chisels or hitting metal objects. The other options listed, such as a brick hammer, hatchet, and mason's hammer, do not accurately describe the image shown.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    What do you call to a beam that rest on more than two (2) supports?

    • A.

      Simple Beam

    • B.

      Continuous Beam

    • C.

      Semi-continuous Beam

    • D.

      Two-way Beam

    Correct Answer
    B. Continuous Beam
    Explanation
    A continuous beam is a beam that rests on more than two supports. Unlike a simple beam, which only has two supports, a continuous beam has additional supports along its length. These additional supports help distribute the load more evenly, providing greater stability and reducing the amount of deflection or bending. Continuous beams are commonly used in construction and engineering projects where longer spans or heavier loads need to be supported.

    What is the minimum slab thickness ratio for simply supported slab?

    • A.

      1/20

    • B.

      1/24

    • C.

      1/28

    • D.

      1/10

    Correct Answer
    A. 1/20
    Explanation
    The minimum slab thickness ratio for simply supported slab is 1/20. This means that the thickness of the slab should be at least 1/20th of the span length. This ratio is important to ensure the structural integrity and load-bearing capacity of the slab. A thicker slab is able to distribute the load more effectively and prevent deflection or sagging. Therefore, a minimum slab thickness ratio of 1/20 is necessary for the proper functioning and safety of the slab.

  • 35. 

    How to achieve fullness of tone?

    • A.

      This can be achieved again if the first reflectors assist the direct sound

    • B.

      For realistic effect, the speech should appear to be coming from the human speaker and not from any loud speaker

    • C.

      This can be achieved by the proper location of the various sections of the orchestra. Weaker instruments should not be hidden behind stronger instruments

    • D.

      If the high level system is used in a room with a flat or level floor, it is good practice to place the loudspeaker above the head of the main speaking and direct it towards the center of the audience

    Correct Answer
    A. This can be achieved again if the first reflectors assist the direct sound
    Explanation
    Achieving fullness of tone can be accomplished by having the first reflectors assist the direct sound. This means that the sound waves should bounce off the reflectors and reach the listener's ears along with the direct sound. By doing so, the sound becomes more immersive and rich, creating a fuller tone.

    C. Vibration
    Explanation
    Vibration does not affect the propagation of noise because it refers to the mechanical oscillations of an object, which do not directly impact the transmission of sound waves through the air. While distance, wind gradient, and molecular absorption of sound by air can all have an influence on how noise travels, vibrations themselves do not alter the propagation of sound.

    Refers to the differences in the temperature of air with respect to the distance from the ground, it is higher than in the upper layers. The reverse is true at nighttime. At night the air near the surface of the earth is cooler.

    • A.

      Temperature gradient

    • B.

      Sound and temperature insulation

    • C.

      Wind gradient

    • D.

      Noise

    Correct Answer
    A. Temperature gradient
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer, "Temperature gradient," is that it refers to the differences in temperature of the air as you move away from the ground. During the day, the temperature near the surface of the earth is higher than in the upper layers, creating a temperature gradient. However, at night, the air near the surface of the earth becomes cooler, reversing the temperature gradient. This phenomenon is due to various factors such as the heating of the ground by sunlight during the day and the cooling effect of the ground at night.

    The Owner shall pay the Architect for additional sets of Contract Documents.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
