## Soil Mechanics and Foundation The maximum dry density upto which any soil can be compacted depends upon

moisture content only
both moisture content and amount of compaction energy
None of these
amount of compaction energy only

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation The total discharge from two wells situated near to each other is

less than the sum of the discharges from individual wells
sum of the discharges from individual wells
equal to larger of the two discharges from individual wells
greater than the sum of the discharges from individual wells

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation In the plate loading test for determining the bearing capacity of soil, the size of square bearing plate should be

less than 300 mm
between 300 mm and 750 mm
greater than 1 m
between 750 mm and 1 m

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation If the voids of a soil mass are full of air only, the soil is termed as

air entrained soil
dry soil
partially saturated soil
dehydrated soil

## Soil Mechanics and Foundation In the triaxial compression test, the application of additional axial stress (i.e. deviator stress) on the soil specimen produces shear stress on

both horizontal and vertical planes
vertical plane only
all planes except horizontal and vertical planes
horizontal plane only
