Q2 | If a chain is used at a temperature
Q3 | The curve of varying radius is known as
Q4 | Two theodolite method of setting out a curve involves
Q5 | A fixed point of reference of known elevation is called
Q6 | The correction to the measured length will be negative when the chain is held on the ground sloping upwards.
Q7 | When the object lies on the left hand side of the chain line, then while taking offset with an optical square, it is held in
Q8 | A method of differential levelling is used in order to find the difference in elevation between two points when
Q9 | A metallic tape is made of an alloy of nickel and steel.
Q10 | When a staff is sighted through the telescope, a certain length of staff is intercepted by the stadia lines. The staff intercept varies with the distance at which the staff is held.
Q11 | With a simple vernier, readings can be taken in one direction only.

Q17 | The line in which the plane passing through the given point and the north and south poles intersects the surface of the earth, is called
Q18 | A scale used for measuring fractional parts of the smallest division of the main scale is known as vernier scale.
Q19 | To the sum of the first and last ordinates, add twice the sum of the remaining odd ordinates and four times the sum of all the even ordinates. The total sum thus obtained is multiplied by one-third of the common distance between the ordinates and the result gives the required area. This rule of finding the area is called.
