    (B) Is always less than 1
    (C) Is always greater than 1
    (D) Can be less than 1

3. Bulb angles are used in
    (A) Column building
    (B) Bridge building
    (C) Ship building

    (B) 1.2 mm
    (C) 1.4 mm
    (D) 1.6 mm

5. The minimum thickness of a steel plate, which is directly exposed to weather and is not accessible for cleaning and repainting, should be:
    (A) 4.5 mm
    (B) 6 mm
    (C) 8 mm
    (D) 10 mm

6. For determination of allowable stress in axial compression, Indian Standard Institution has adopted
    (A) Euler's formula
    (B) Rankine formula
    (C) Perry Robertson formula
    (D) Secant formula

7. Rolled steel beams are:
    (A) Mainly used to resist bending stress
    (B) Used as independent sections to resist compressive stress
    (C) Used as independent sections to resist tensile stress
    (D) All the above

8. When the axis of load lies in the plane of rivet group, then the most heavily loaded rivet will be the one which
    (A) Is at the maximum distance from CG of the rivet group
