      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Blueprints
    Explanation
    Before CAD drawings, construction drawings were commonly referred to as blueprints. Blueprints were typically hand-drawn copies of the original design, usually in blue ink on white paper. They provided detailed information about the dimensions, materials, and specifications of the construction project. Blueprints were widely used in the construction industry before the advent of computer-aided design (CAD) software, which revolutionized the way drawings are created and shared.

    This type of drawing is used for work that has to do with construction in or around the earth.

    • A.

      Civil plans

    • B.

      Architectural plans

    • C.

      Structural plans

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Civil plans
    Explanation
    Civil plans are used for work that involves construction in or around the earth. This includes projects such as roads, bridges, buildings, and infrastructure. Civil plans provide detailed information on the design, layout, and specifications of these projects, including grading, drainage, utilities, and landscaping. They are crucial for ensuring that construction is carried out safely and efficiently, and that the final result meets all necessary regulations and standards. Architectural plans, on the other hand, focus more on the aesthetic and functional aspects of a building's design, while structural plans specifically address the structural components and stability of a construction project. Therefore, civil plans are the most appropriate choice for work related to construction in or around the earth.

    Which drawing plans show the materials to be used for the walls and the framing for the walls?

    • A.

      Mechanical

    • B.

      Structural

    • C.

      Architectural

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Structural
    Explanation
    Structural drawing plans show the materials to be used for the walls and the framing for the walls. These plans provide detailed information about the structural components of a building, including the type of materials to be used for the walls and the framing. This helps ensure that the walls are properly constructed and can support the weight of the building. Architectural drawings, on the other hand, focus more on the aesthetics and layout of the building, while mechanical drawings deal with the HVAC and plumbing systems.

    • C.

      Title Block

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Specifications
    Explanation
    Specifications are written statements that provide detailed information about the requirements, materials, and standards for a project. Unlike drawings, which primarily convey visual information, specifications clarify information that cannot be easily shown on drawings. They provide additional details and instructions that are necessary for understanding and executing the project correctly. Therefore, specifications are an essential tool for ensuring that all parties involved in the project have a clear understanding of the requirements and expectations.

    • C.

      Revision Block

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. RFI's
    Explanation
    RFIs (Request for Information) are used to clarify discrepancies on construction drawings. When there are inconsistencies or uncertainties in the drawings, contractors or subcontractors submit RFIs to seek clarification from the architect or designer. This helps in resolving any ambiguities or conflicts in the construction plans, ensuring that the project proceeds smoothly and accurately. RFIs are an essential communication tool in the construction industry, facilitating collaboration and preventing errors or misunderstandings during the construction process.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Who writes up an RFI?

    • A.

      Foreman

    • B.

      Supervisor

    • C.

      CEO

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Foreman
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Foreman. In a construction project, a Request for Information (RFI) is a formal document that is used to obtain clarification or additional information about a specific aspect of the project. The foreman, who is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations and coordinating the work on-site, typically writes up an RFI. They may identify a problem, discrepancy, or need for clarification and document it in an RFI to communicate with the project team, including the supervisor and CEO, to ensure that the project progresses smoothly.
