 11.Cement mortars richer than 1 : 3 are not used in masonry because (i) there is no gain in strength of masonry (ii) there is high shrinkage (iii) they are prone to segregation Of these statements Only (ii) is correct (i) and (ii) are correct (ii) and (iii) are correct (i), (ii) and (iii) are correct ANSWER : : (i) and (ii) are correct Explanation :
 12.Assertion A : For eccentricity ratio exceeding 1/6, effective thickness of masonry will get reduced. Reason R : For eccentricity ratio exceeding 1/6, there will be tension on one side of the member. Select your answer according to the codes give below: Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A. Both A and R are true and R is not the correct explanation of A. A is true but R is false. A is false but R is true. ANSWER : : Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A. Explanation :
