1. Two-point problem is solved by mechanical method.
2. Three-point problem is solved by Bessel’s method
3. In two-point problem, auxiliary station is required

Which of these statements is/are correct?

Solution:
QUESTION: 8

Which one of the following instruments is used in plane table surveying for the measurement of horizontal and vertical distances directly?

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

In the given formula formats, L is the length of a base line split into ‘n’ equal segments each of length ‘d’. O1, O2 .......On+1 are the ordinates at the sequential ends of the segments and M1, M2....Mn are the mid-ordinates of successive segments. Which of the following pairs of rules and the formulae for computation of the area standing on the base line are correctly matched?
1. Mid - ordinate Rule ............... 2. Average - ordinate Rule ...... 3. Trapezoidal Rule........ 4. Simpsons’ rule Select the correct answer using the codes given below

Solution: QUESTION: 10

Which one of the following methods estimates best the area of an irregular and curved boundary?

Solution:

Mid-ordinate and Average ordinate methods are used with the assumption that the boundaries between the extremities of the ordinates are straight lines.
Trapezoidal method is based on the assumption that the figures are trapezoids. The method is more accurate than the above two methods.
Simpson’s method assumes that the short lengths of the boundaries between the ordinates are parabolic arcs. This method is more useful when the boundary line departs considerably from the straight line. The results obtained by use of Simpson’s method in all cases are more accurate.
