Q2. For a given soil sample,

(a) 2.00
(b) 1.75
(c) 1.50
(d) 1.25
Q3. At liquid limit, all soils possess
(a) same shear strength of small magnitude
(b) same shear strength of large magnitude
(c) different shear strengths of small magnitude
(d) different shear strengths of large magnitude

S3. Ans.(a)

Q4. Inorganic soil with low compressibility are represented by
(a) MH
(b) SL
(c) ML
(d) CH

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. In ML; M represents inorganic silt,
L represents low compressibility,
MH. Inorganic silt of high compressibility,
SL: Sand of low compressibility,
CH: Clay with high compressibility.

Q5. Vibrofloatation techniques is best suited for densifying
(a) very loose sands below water table
(b) layered clays
(c) organic clays
(d) coarse sands and gravels

S5. Ans.(a)
Q6. Given below are methods of compaction:

1. Vibration technique
2. Flooding the soil

(c) 1, 2 and 5
(d) 3, 4 and 5

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Cohesionless soil can be compacted by vibration; flooding and dropping heavy weight from height. Kneading and tamping actions provided by sheeps foot roller and tandem roller are not effective for cohesionless soils.
