169.  Pick up the correct statement applicable to plate load test

170.  In a grain size analysis of soil, the gain size values and the corresponding percentage finer obtained are give below : (Grain size(mm)-Percent finer)(4.75-100)(2.00-82)(1.00-60)(0.50-44)(0.15-22)(0.075-10)(0.053-5) The uniformity coefficient of the soil, is

171. 260 g of wet soil was taken in a pycnometer jar of weight 400 g in order to find the moisture content in the soil, with specific gravity of soil particles 2.75. The weight of soil and remaining water filled in pycnometer without air bubbles was 1415 g and the weight of pycnometer filled with water alone was 1275 g. The moisture content in the soil is

172. A compacted soil sample using 10% moisture content has a weight of 200 g and mass unit weight of 2.0 g/cm3. If the specific gravity of soil particles and water are 2.7 and 1.0, the degree of saturation of the soil is

173.  A sample of saturated soil has 30% water content and the specific gravity of soil grains is 2.6. The dry density of the soil mass in g/cmd, is

174.  A soil sample has passing 0.075 mm sieve = 60% liquid limit = 65% and plastic limit = 40%. The group index of the soil, is

175. 1n a liquid limit test, the moisture content at 10 blows was 70% and that at 100 blows was 20%. The liquid limit of the soil, is
