Following Civil Engineering Multiple choice objective type questions and answers will help you in BSNL JTO, GATE 2024 and IES 2024 examinations :

11.A system of copianar forces acting on a rigid body can be reduced to

one force only
one couple only
one force and one couple only
none of the above

12.Force polygon method is applicable for

any copianar force system
a system of parallel forces only
concurrent copianar force system
non-concurrent copianar force system

13.If the given forces P,, P2, P3 and P4 are such that the force polygon does not close, then the system will

be in equilibrium
always reduce to a resultant force
always reduce to a couple
both (a) and (c)

14.If two forces are in equilibrium, then the forces must i) be equal in magnitude ii) be opposite in sense iii) act along the same line The correct answer is

(i) and (ii)
(i) and (iii)
only (i)
(i), (ii) and (iii)

15.For a non-concurrent force system to be in equilibrium

only the closure of force polygon is sufficient
only the closure of funicular polygon is sufficient
both force polygon and funicular polygon must close
none of the above
