QUESTION: 1

### Select the correct range of Density Index ID

Solution:

e can range from emax to emin depending upon loosest condition to densest condition.

QUESTION: 2

### If the plasticity index of a soil mass is zero the soil is

Solution:

Coarse grained soils like sand cannot achieve the plastic state of consistency and their liquid and plastic limit are said to coincide.

QUESTION: 3

### The ratio of the shear strength of undisturbed soil to that of remoulded soil is known as the

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

Stake’s law is valid only if the size of the particle is

Solution:

Diameter larger than 0.2 mm causes turbulence.
Diameter less than 0.0002 mm causes brownian movement and velocity of settlement is too small for accurate measurement.

QUESTION: 5

Water content of soil can be

Solution:

The water content of some of the fine-gained soils may be even more than 100%, which indicates that more than 50% of the total mass is that of water.
