Explanation:

Soils typically have six horizons. From the top down, they are Horizon O,A, E, B, C and R. Each horizon has certain characteristics.

O Horizon The top, organic layer of soil, made up mostly of leaf litter and humus (decomposed organic matter).

* A Horizon The layer called topsoil ; it is found below the O horizon and above the E horizon. Seeds germinate and plant roots grow in this dark colored layer. It is made up of humus (decomposed organic matter) mixed with mineral particles.

E Horizon This eluviation (leaching) layer is light in color; this layer is beneath the A Horizon and above the B Horizon. It is made up mostly of sand and silt, having lost most of its minerals and clay as water drips through the soil (in the process of eluviation).

* B Horizon Also called the subsoil this layer is beneath the E Horizon and above the C Horizon. It contains clay and mineral deposits (like iron, aluminum oxides, and calcium carbonate) that it receives from layers above it when mineralized water drips from the soil above.

C Horizon Also called regolith: the layer beneath the B Horizon and above the R Horizon. It consists of slightly brokenup bedrock . Plant roots do not penetrate into this layer; very little organic material is found in this layer.

R Horizon The unweathered rock ( bedrock ) layer that is beneath all the other layers.Bedrock is made up of igneous , sedimentary , or metamorphic rock

Ans: 1. Space

Explanation:

Elements of Design are point, line, space, shape, size, value, texture, colour.

SPACE

• Space has to be included in any visual design.
• In 2-dimensional arrangements space means leaving some blank areas in a composition.
• A human eye needs space to feel comfortable, and space will let the eye distinguish the part that’s meant to be noticed compared to just the background.

COLOR

• Color refers to specific hues.
• It has 3 properties:
• Hue
• Spectral color name
• Intensity
• Or saturation is concerned with the brightness or dullness of a color
• Value
• Relative darkness or lightness of a color
• Color wheel is a way of showing the chromatic scale in a circle using all the colors made with the primary triad.

FORM

• Form is a 3-dimensional entity that has distinct volume and thickness.
• It can be generated as an illusion by using shading and lighting techniques.
• Form can be viewed from many angles.

SHAPE

• Shape is something that is seen as a separate entity from its surroundings within a visual composition.
• Shapes can be designed and are given different names like square, rectangle, circle, polygon, ellipse etc depending on the geometric properties of that the outline that define the shape.

Q.37 What is the junction formed when two brick walls meet each other at an angle other than a right angle?

1. Tee-junction
2. Cross junction
3. Squint junction
4. Intersection

Ans: 3. Squint junction

Explanation:
Junction is that connection which is formed at the meeting of one (subsidiary) wall at same intermediate position of another wall. When both these walls meet at right angles, we get a tee-junction. If the subsidiary wall crosses the main wall and continues beyond the junction, we have a cross-junction or intersection.

However, if the subsidiary wall meets the main  wall at some intermediate point, and if the angle formed between the two is other than a right angle, a squint junction is formed.

A squint junction is formed when an internal wall meets an external continuous wall at an angle other than 90°. Usually, the angle of squint is kept at 45 degrees, though squint junctions are not very common in brick work.

Q.60 ____________ Obtained by adding white to a hue.

2. Secondary
3. Tints
4. Neutral

Ans: 3. Tints

Explanation:

TINTS

Adding white to a pure color creates tints. Tints are often associated with pastel colors because they are softer and subtle. You can mix any of the basic twelve colors together and then add an amount of pure white to get a tint or pastel palette. In the graphic design world, you can adjust the opacity in your software to create a tint.

TONES

Adding black and white, or gray, to a pure color, creates tones of a color. Most of the colors we see in our world on a daily basis are tones of a pure color. Tones have the qualities of a pure color but are not as intense, they are “toned down.”

Adding black to a color creates shades. Shades can range from medium to very dark colors depending on the amount of black added to the color. Black should always be added with caution because it can easily become overpowering. Increasing the contrast will also produce a deeper shade of a color.
