______ is  the point in any solid where a single applied force could support it; the point where the mass of the object is equally balanced. (Un1)

• A.

• B.

Center of Gravity

• C.

• D.

Right Angle

B. Center of Gravity
Explanation
The center of gravity is the point in any solid where a single applied force could support it and where the mass of the object is equally balanced. It is the point around which the weight of an object is evenly distributed in all directions. This means that if an object is suspended from its center of gravity, it will remain stable and not tip over. In the context of the given options, the center of gravity is the correct answer.

• A.

Lunch line

• B.

Hidden lines

• C.

Object lines

• D.

The line at McDonald's

B. Hidden lines
Explanation
A hidden line is a line consisting of a series of short dashes that represents a feature hidden from view. In this context, the term "hidden" implies that the feature is not visible in the current perspective or view. The other options provided, such as "lunch line," "object lines," and "the line at McDonald's," are unrelated and do not accurately describe the given definition.

Orthographic projections is the process of projecting two or more views of an object onto imaginary planes by drawing lines from the object perpendicular to the plane (Un7) true or false?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Orthographic projections involve projecting multiple views of an object onto imaginary planes by drawing lines perpendicular to the plane. This process is used to accurately represent the object in a two-dimensional form. The statement is true because orthographic projections are indeed a method used in technical drawing and engineering to depict objects accurately.

Rate this question:

• 36.

Orthographic projections have ____ possible views Un 7

• A.

Front, back, and no more

• B.

Front, back, top, bottom

• C.

As many as Chuck Norris says it does

• D.

Front, back, top, bottom, right, left

D. Front, back, top, bottom, right, left
Explanation
Orthographic projections involve projecting a three-dimensional object onto a two-dimensional plane from different directions. In this case, the correct answer suggests that orthographic projections have views from the front, back, top, bottom, right, and left sides of the object, resulting in a total of six possible views.

Rate this question:

• 37.

Isometric view are drawn by using  ____ Un6

• A.

Vertical and horzional lines

• B.

2 different angles for it angle lines that add up to 120 degrees and never have horzional lines

• C.

Only horzional lines

• D.

Random lines everywhere

B. 2 different angles for it angle lines that add up to 120 degrees and never have horzional lines
Explanation
Isometric views are drawn by using two different angles for the angle lines that add up to 120 degrees and never have horizontal lines. This technique allows for a three-dimensional representation of an object on a two-dimensional surface, giving the viewer a realistic perspective of the object's shape and dimensions.

Rate this question:

• 38.

Oblique views can be decribed as drawing views that ____  Un6

• A.

Use only vertical lines , horzionals lines and one single angle for the angled lines

• B.

Use 2 different angle lines

• C.

Use vanhishing lines

• D.

Are just not possible to draw

A. Use only vertical lines , horzionals lines and one single angle for the angled lines
Explanation
Oblique views can be described as drawing views that use only vertical lines, horizontal lines, and one single angle for the angled lines. This means that the view is not drawn with vanishing lines and does not require the use of multiple angles. Instead, it is a simplified representation that provides a clear and straightforward depiction of an object or scene.

Rate this question:

• 39.

Isometric and Oblique views are _____ Un6

• A.

Pictorial views

• B.

2D views only

• C.

Both 3D and 2D views

• D.

Orthographic views

A. Pictorial views
Explanation
Isometric and Oblique views are types of pictorial views. Pictorial views are 3D representations of an object that show all three dimensions (length, width, and height) in a single view. Isometric and Oblique views are commonly used in technical drawings and provide a realistic representation of an object by showing it from a specific angle. In contrast, 2D views only show two dimensions (length and width) and do not provide a realistic representation of the object. Orthographic views, on the other hand, are a set of 2D views that show an object from multiple angles.

Rate this question:

• 40.

A floor plan represents which of the following 6 possible orthographic views Un6

• A.

Front view

• B.

The international upside down view

• C.

Top view

• D.

Right view

C. Top view
Explanation
The correct answer is "Top view" because a floor plan typically shows a bird's eye view of a building or space, looking down from above. It provides a clear representation of the layout and arrangement of rooms, walls, and other architectural features from a top perspective. The other options mentioned, such as the front view, international upside down view, and right view, do not accurately describe the type of view typically shown in a floor plan.

Rate this question:

• 41.

A house Elevation view represents which of the 6 orthographic views Un6

• A.

Bottom view

• B.

Front, Back, Right or Left view

• C.

Only top view

• D.

None of these views

B. Front, Back, Right or Left view
Explanation
A house elevation view represents the front, back, right, or left view of the house. This means that it shows the house as if you were looking at it from the front, back, right, or left side. The elevation view does not include the top or bottom view of the house.
