 1.If the stopping distance is 60 meters, then the minimum stopping sight distance for two lane, two way traffic is 30m 60m 120m 180m ANSWER : : 60m Explanation :
 2.The shoulder provided along the road edge should be rougher than the traffic lanes smoother than the traffic lanes of same colour as that of the pavement of very low load bearing capacity ANSWER : : rougher than the traffic lanes Explanation :
 3.If b is the wheel track of a vehicle and h is the height of centre of gravity above road surface, then to avoid overturning and lateral skidding on a horizontal curve, the centrifugal ratio should always be less than b/2h and greater than co-efficient of lateral friction less than b/2h and also less than co-efficient of lateral friction greater than b/2h and less than co-efficient of lateral friction greater than b/2h and also greater than coefficient of lateral friction ANSWER : : less than b/2h and also less than co-efficient of lateral friction Explanation :
 4.Select the correct statement. Nagpur road plan formula take into account the towns with very large population. Nagpur road plan has a target road length of 32 km per 100 square km. Second 20-year plan has provided 1600 km of expressways out of the proposed National highway.
