QUESTION: 4

The single grained structure is a characteristic of __________

Solution:

Single grained structure is usually found in coarse-grained soil.

QUESTION: 5

Soil structure usually defines __________

Solution:

Soil structure is defined as the arrangement and state of aggregation of soil particle in a soil mass.

QUESTION: 6

An arrangement composed of ‘flocs’ of soil particle is known as __________

Solution:

An arrangement composed of ‘flocs’ of soil particle is known as flocculent structure. As the particles are oriented ‘edge-to-edge’ (or) ‘edge-to-face’ with respect to one another.

Solution:

In dispersed structure of particle are oriented face to face with one another in a dispersed state.

QUESTION: 8

The skeleton and matrix structure represent ___________

Solution:

An arrangement of coarse grains forming a skeleton and matrix represent composite soils.

QUESTION: 9

The soil structure, having comparative loose stable structure is ____________

Solution:

Honey comb structure is composed of loosely arranged bundle of particle. Hence they have comparatively less stable structure than others.
