1. Disposal to sewage in large cities, is done in
    (A) Irrigation
    (B) Dilution
    (C) Oxidation
    (D) Purification

2. 3.0 ml of raw sewage is diluted to 300 ml. The D.O. concentration of the diluted sample at the beginning of the test was 8 mg/l. After 5 day-incubation at 20°C, the D.O. concentration was 5 mg/l. The BOD of raw sewerage is
    (A) 100 mg/l
    (B) 200 mg/l
    (C) 300 mg/l
    (D) 400 mg/l

3. The digested sludge from septic tanks, is removed after a maximum period of
    (A) 3 years
    (B) 3.5 years
    (C) 4 years
    (D) 5 years

4. Assertion (A): The minimum self cleansing velocity in the sewer, at least once a day, must be generated.
Reason (R): If certain deposition takes place and is not removed, it obstructs free flow and causes further deposition leading to complete blocking of the sewer.
    (A) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
    (B) Both A and R are true but R is not a correct explanation of A
    (C) A is true but R is false
    (D) A is false but R is true

5. The presence of free ammonia in sewage, is detected by
    (A) Boiling
    (B) Adding potassium permanganate
    (C) Adding sulphuric acid
    (D) Phenol-di-sulphuric acid

6. Dry water flow in a combined sewer, is
    (A) Industrial sewage
    (B) Domestic sewage
    (C) Storm water
    (D) Inclusive of domestic and industrial sewage but excludes storm water

7. The porosity of sediments in sewer pipes, is usually taken as
    (A) 0.010
    (B) 0.011
    (C) 0.012
    (D) 0.013

8. In sewage having fully oxidized organic matter, the nitrogen exists in the form of
