 1.For a loose sand sample and a dense sand sample consolidated to the same effective stress ultimate strength is same and also peak strength is same ultimate strength is different but peak strength is same ultimate strength is same but peak strength of dense sand is greater than that of loose sand ultimate strength is same but peak ANSWER : : ultimate strength is same but peak strength of dense sand is greater than that of loose sand Explanation :
 2.Sensitivity of a soil can be defined as percentage of volume change of soil under saturated condition ratio of compressive strength of unconfined undisturbed soil to that of soil in a remoulded state ratio of volume of voids to volume of solids none of the above ANSWER : : ratio of compressive strength of unconfined undisturbed soil to that of soil in a remoulded state Explanation :
 3.Unconfmed compressive strength test is undrained test drained test consolidated undrained test consolidated drained test ANSWER : : undrained test Explanation :
 4.Select the incorrect statement. Effective angle of shearing resistance increases as the size of particles increases increases as the soil gradation im-proves is limited to a maximum value of 45� is rarely more than 30� for fine grained soil ANSWER : : is limited to a maximum value of 45� Explanation :
 5.In a triaxial compression test when drainage is allowed during the first stage (i. e. application of cell pressure) only and not during the second stage (i.e. application of deviator stress at constant cell pressure), the test is known as consolidated drained test consolidated undrained test unconsolidated drained test unconsolidated undrained test ANSWER : : consolidated undrained test Explanation :
