2) The M.I.T. classification system
3) Indian standard classification system
4) International soil classification system.

QUESTION: 3

### In particle size classification system ,the soils are classified according to__________

Solution:

In the particle soil classification system, soils are arranged to the grain size.

QUESTION: 4

Which of the following terms are used to indicate grain sizes?

Solution:

Terms such as gravel, sand, silt, and clay are used to indicate grain sizes .these terms are used only as designation of particle size.

QUESTION: 5

The term ‘silt’ in particle size classification system ,can be replaced by___________

Solution:

As the system is classified based on size, it is preferable to use the word ‘silt size’ and ‘clay size’ in place of simply ‘silt’ or ‘clay’.

QUESTION: 6

Indian standard classification of soil is based on_________

Solution:

Indian standard classification (IS: 1948-1970) is based on the M.I.T. system.

QUESTION: 7

Soil occurring in nature, is composed of__________

Solution:

Soil occurring in nature is composed of different percentage of sand, silt, and clay size particles.

QUESTION: 8

The purpose of soil classification is to___________

Solution:

The purpose of soil classification is to arrange various types of soils in to groups according to their engineering or agricultural properties.

QUESTION: 9

Particle size classification is best suited for_________

Solution:

Since properties of clay soils is less dependent on particle size distrubution(textural classification) and more dependent on size it is best suited for clay soil.

QUESTION: 10

Particle size classification system does not signify__________

Solution:

Particle size classification used only as designation of particle sizes, and do not signify the naturally occurring types which are mixtures of particle of different sizes.
