Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 3

Scrap Value: Scrap Value is the sell value of dismantled materials of an asset at the end of it’s useful life. Scrap Value is counted in the calculation of depreciation of a property, generally @10% of the cost of the Structure.

Salvage value: Salvage Value is the Estimated Value of an asset without dismantling it at the end of it’s useful life.

Book Value: Book value is the amount shown in the account book after allowing necessary depreciations. The book value of a property at a particular year is the original cost minus the amount of depreciation allowed per year and will be gradually reduced year to year and at the end of the utility period of the property, the book value will be only scrap value.

Market Value: The market value of a property is the amount which can be obtained at any particular time from the open market if the property is put for sale. The market value will differ from time to time according to demand and supply.

There are four main stages in the project for a work, namely,

1. Administrative approval

2. Expenditure sanction

3. Technical sanction

4. Appropriation or re-appropriation of funds

For every work (excluding repairs) initiated by, or connected with, the requirements of another department, it is first necessary to obtain the concurrence of the department concerned to the proposals.

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 11

What is the unit of measuring cornice?

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 11

The methods and units of measurements for civil construction works are mainly categorised for their nature, shape and size and for making payments to the contractor. The principle of units of measurements normally consists the following:

1. Single units work like doors, windows, trusses etc., are expressed in numbers.

2. Works consists linear measurements involve length like cornice, fencing, hand rail, bands of specified width etc., are expressed in running metres (RM)

3. Works consists areal surface measurements involve area like plastering, white washing, partitions of specified thickness etc., and are expressed in square meters (m2)

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 12

The cross-section areas of three sections of an embankment at an interval of 40 m are 10 square metres, 15 square metres and 35 square metres. Calculate the quantity of earthwork for the embankment. Use prismoidal method.

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 12

Prismoidal formula is given by:

V =  h/3[a+a+ 4[a+ a+…. an-2] +2[a+ a+…. an-1]

Calculation:

h = 40 m

a= 10 m2

a3 = 35 m2

a2 = 15 m2

V = 1400 m3

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 14

The slope of the outlet of P-trap below the horizontal is kept.

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 14

In most homes, there is a P-trap installed under the sinks in the bathroom and kitchens. A P-trap is a plumbing fixture that has several purposes. It traps debris that has drained from the sink and prevents it from forming a clog deep within the plumbing system and to stops sewer gases from passing in to the home. The slope of the outlet of “P trap” below the horizontal is kept at 14°.

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 15

The above figure represents plan and section of an excavation layout. The volume of earthwork in excavation of foundation trench is

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 15

Volume of excavation= perimeter × area

Perimeter = 4 + 4 + 2(6 - 2 × 0.8) = 16.8 m

Area = 0.8 × 0.6 = 0.48 m2; Hence volume = 16.8 × 0.48 = 8.064 m3.

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 18

Modular bricks are of nominal size 20 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm and 30% of the volume is lost in mortar between joints. Then what is the required number of modular bricks per cubic meter of brickwork?

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 18

Nominal size (Modular brick) = 20 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm

Actual size (Modular brick) = 19 cm × 9 cm × 9 cm

Mortar required for 1 m3 brickwork =

= 0.2305 m3

Volume of Mortar lost b/w joints = 30%

 

Volume (set Mortar) 

Actual volume of brickwork = 1 – 0.29655 = 0.70035 m3

No. of modular bricks

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 19

Which of the following tax generally not applicable to residential building is:

Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 20

Plywood is obtained by gluing wooden sheets at a pressure of:

Detailed Solution for Test: Estimation & Valuation- 1 - Question 20

Correct Answer :- a

Explanation : Plywood is obtained by gluing wooden sheets at a pressure of 100 to 150 N/cm^2.

Plywood is formed through the bonding of three or more layers of wood using an adhesive. The layers are very thin and the bonding is done at a temperature of 100 to 130 °C. Each layer has grains on it that are perpendicular to the layer below it. This lessens the extent to which the plywood shrinks and also increases the strength of the final product.
