Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Not included in the scope of practice of Architecture.

    • A.

      Architectural designing

    • B.

      Structural designing

    • C.

      Site analysis

    • D.

      Quality surveys

    Correct Answer
    B. Structural designing
    Explanation
    Structural designing is not included in the scope of practice of Architecture. While architects may have a basic understanding of structural principles, the detailed design and engineering of the structural components of a building is typically done by a structural engineer. Architects focus more on the overall design, aesthetics, and functionality of a building, while structural engineers ensure that the structure is safe, stable, and can withstand the loads it will be subjected to. Therefore, structural designing falls outside the realm of architectural practice.

      Surety

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Service agreement
    Explanation
    The correct answer is service agreement. This is because a service agreement is a written contract that stipulates the scope of services and guarantees compensation for those services. A service agreement is typically notarized and serves as a legally binding document between two parties, outlining the terms and conditions of the services being provided. It ensures that both parties understand their obligations and rights, providing clarity and protection for both parties involved.

    • D.

      DECS

    Correct Answer
    C. UAP
    Explanation
    The correct answer is UAP. The selection of a member of the Board of Architecture will begin with the submission of a list of five nominees by the UAP (United Architects of the Philippines). This implies that the UAP plays a significant role in the selection process and has the authority to nominate potential candidates for the board position.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which is not true for Consulting Architect?

    • A.

      Assumes civil liability

    • B.

      With exceptional expertise

    • C.

      Licensed Architect

    • D.

      With academic qualifications

    Correct Answer
    A. Assumes civil liability
    Explanation
    The statement "assumes civil liability" is not true for a Consulting Architect. Consulting Architects provide expert advice and guidance on architectural projects, but they do not assume civil liability for the design or implementation of the project. This responsibility typically lies with the licensed Architect or the client. Consulting Architects are hired for their exceptional expertise and knowledge in the field, often backed by academic qualifications.

    • A.

      A resident of the Philippines

    • C.

      An architectural practitioner for 5 years

    • D.

      Former faculty member resigned 5 years hence

    Correct Answer
    C. An architectural practitioner for 5 years
    Explanation
    An architectural practitioner for 5 years could be disqualified to become a member of the Board of Architecture because the question asks for someone who could be disqualified. The other options do not mention any disqualifications, such as being a resident of the Philippines or being a BS Architecture graduate of a recognized American university and passing the local board exam. Being a former faculty member resigned 5 years hence does not necessarily disqualify someone from becoming a member of the Board of Architecture.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    This is beyond the specific functions of the Board of Architecture.

    • A.

      Enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with CHED

    • B.

      Hear and decide civil cases on violations of Architecture Act

    • C.

      Approve, issue, limit or cancel temporary permits

    • D.

      Adopt an official seal of the Board

    Correct Answer
    B. Hear and decide civil cases on violations of Architecture Act
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hear and decide civil cases on violations of Architecture Act". This answer is correct because the other options listed are within the specific functions of the Board of Architecture. However, hearing and deciding civil cases on violations of the Architecture Act falls outside of their specific functions, making it the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A Master's Degree in Architecture shall be credited how many months in the practical experience required of any person applying for examination?

    • A.

      6 months

    • B.

      12 months

    • C.

      18 months

    • D.

      24 months

    Correct Answer
    B. 12 months
    Explanation
    A Master's Degree in Architecture is considered to be a higher level of education and provides a deeper understanding of the field. Therefore, it is credited with 12 months of practical experience, as it is assumed that the knowledge and skills gained during the degree program are equivalent to a year of practical experience.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    This is not a reason for refusal of registration and removal of name from roster of architects.

    • A.

      Misrepresentation in application for examination

    • B.

      Convicted of a criminal offense

    • C.

      Immoral and dishonorable conduct

    • D.

      Conviction for a political offense

    Correct Answer
    D. Conviction for a political offense
    Explanation
    The correct answer is conviction for a political offense. This is because the statement clearly states that it is not a reason for refusal of registration and removal of name from the roster of architects. Therefore, the other options, such as misrepresentation in application for examination, conviction of a criminal offense, and immoral and dishonorable conduct, can be considered as reasons for refusal of registration and removal of name from the roster of architects.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is a ground for suspension and revocation of Certificate of Registration, Professional Identification Card or the Special/Temporary Permit?

    • A.

      Signed plans prepared in his/her office by draftsmen

    • B.

      Paid only the regular fees in securing Certificate of Registration

    • C.

      Aided in unauthorized practice

    • D.

      Undertook projects with service agreements

    Correct Answer
    C. Aided in unauthorized practice
    Explanation
    Aiding in unauthorized practice is a ground for suspension and revocation of Certificate of Registration, Professional Identification Card or the Special/Temporary Permit. This means that if a person assists or supports someone who is engaging in professional activities without the proper authorization or license, their own registration or permit may be suspended or revoked. This is because aiding in unauthorized practice goes against the professional standards and regulations set by the licensing board or authority.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A provision in the Architecture Act of 2004 pertaining to application of a foreign citizen taking the licensure examinations.

    • A.

      Non-registered person

    • B.

      Prohibition in practice

    • C.

      Vested rights

    • D.

      Reciprocity requirements

    Correct Answer
    D. Reciprocity requirements
    Explanation
    The correct answer is reciprocity requirements. The provision in the Architecture Act of 2004 is likely discussing the requirements for foreign citizens to obtain licensure in architecture through reciprocity. Reciprocity is a process where individuals who hold a license in one jurisdiction can apply for a license in another jurisdiction without having to retake the licensure examinations. This suggests that the provision is outlining the specific requirements and criteria that foreign citizens must meet in order to be eligible for reciprocity and obtain licensure in architecture.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

      Board of Architecture

    • C.

      CHED

    • D.

      Schools of architecture

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Board of Architecture. The Board of Architecture is responsible for accrediting Continuing Professional Development providers. Continuing Professional Development is important for professionals in the field of architecture to stay updated with the latest knowledge and skills. Therefore, the Board of Architecture ensures that the providers offering such programs meet the required standards and deliver quality education and training to architects.

    Which is a prohibition in the practice of Architecture?

    • A.

      A person claiming architectural work without using the title "Architect"

    • B.

      A person enticing a registered architect to first execute a written contract

    • C.

      Solicitation of architectural work by registered architects

    • D.

      A government architect signing for architectural plans prepared under his supervision

    Correct Answer
    A. A person claiming architectural work without using the title "Architect"
    Explanation
    A prohibition in the practice of architecture is when a person claims to do architectural work without using the title "Architect". This means that individuals who are not qualified or licensed as architects should not falsely represent themselves as architects and engage in architectural work. This prohibition ensures that only qualified professionals are allowed to practice architecture and protects the integrity and standards of the profession.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The government architect-of-record shall collect from the concerned national or local agency an incentive pay to cover the civil liabilities in the equivalent amount of ___% of the project cost of every project provided it shall not exceed ___% of his annual salary which shall be paid full completion of the project.

    • A.

      1% / 50%

    • B.

      1.5% / 50%

    • C.

      1% / 80%

    • D.

      1.5% / 80%

    Correct Answer
    B. 1.5% / 50%
    Explanation
    The government architect-of-record is entitled to an incentive pay to cover civil liabilities. This pay is a percentage of the project cost, which is 1.5%. However, there is a limit to the amount that can be collected, which is 50% of the architect's annual salary. Therefore, the correct answer is 1.5% / 50%.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which does not comply with the conditions for foreign nationals to secure temporary/special permits.

    • A.

      A citizen of a country where Filipino architects are permitted to practice

    • B.

      Legally qualified to practice in his country

    • C.

      Working with a Filipino counterpart

    • D.

      Many Filipino Architects have similar expertise and specialization

    Correct Answer
    A. A citizen of a country where Filipino architects are permitted to practice
    Explanation
    The given answer states that a citizen of a country where Filipino architects are permitted to practice does not comply with the conditions for foreign nationals to secure temporary/special permits. This implies that the conditions require foreign nationals to be from a country where Filipino architects are not permitted to practice. Therefore, being a citizen of a country where Filipino architects are permitted to practice would not meet the conditions for securing temporary/special permits.

    • D.

      Guarantee any estimates or cost of the work

    Correct Answer
    D. Guarantee any estimates or cost of the work
    Explanation
    The unethical action with respect to the Architect's responsibility to his client is guaranteeing any estimates or cost of the work. This is unethical because it creates false expectations for the client and may lead to financial harm or disputes if the actual costs exceed the guaranteed estimates. It is important for architects to provide accurate and transparent cost estimates to clients, but they should not guarantee them as unforeseen circumstances or changes in the project scope can impact the final costs.

    A guarantee bond is a form of security provided by the contractor and their surety to ensure the quality of materials, equipment, and workmanship. This bond serves as a guarantee that the contractor will fulfill their obligations and meet the required standards. It provides reassurance to the project owner that if any issues arise with the materials or workmanship, they will be rectified by the contractor.

    Rate this question:

      Economic Feasibility Studies

    • B.

      Space Management Studies

    • C.

      Architectural Programming

    • D.

      Site Selection and Analysis.

    Correct Answer
    C. Architectural Programming
    Explanation
    Architectural programming is a pre-design service that involves investigating, identifying, and documenting the needs of the client for use in the design of the project. This process helps architects understand the requirements and objectives of the client, including functional, aesthetic, and budgetary considerations. By gathering this information, architects can develop a comprehensive understanding of the project's scope and develop a design that meets the client's needs effectively. Economic feasibility studies, space management studies, and site selection and analysis are also important pre-design services, but they do not specifically focus on investigating and documenting the client's needs like architectural programming does.
