21.The maximum permissible limit for flouride in drinking water is 1.5 mg/litre


 

22.Standard EDTA (ethylene diamine terra acetic acid) solution is used to determine the hardness in water


 

23. If the coliform bacteria is present in a sample of water, then the coliform test to

be conducted is presumptive coliform test,confirmed coliform test,completed coliform test


 

24.Alkalinity in water is expressed as milligrams per litre in terms of equivalent

calcium carbonate


 

25.The product of H+ ions and OH- ions in a stronger alkali is


 

26.Which of the following values of pH represents a stronger acid? 2


 

27.Turbidity is measured on standard silica scale

 

28.On standard silica scale, the turbidity in drinking water should be limited to 10 ppm

 

29.Residual chlorine in water is determined by starch iodide method,orthotolidine method


 

30.Orthotolidine test is used for determination of residual chlorine

 

31.If the total hardness of water is greater than its total alkalinity, the carbonate

hardness will be equal to total alkalinity

 

32.The amount of residual chlorine left in public water supply for safety against

pathogenic bacteria is about 0.05 to 0.5 ppm

 

33.The dissolved oxygen level in natural unpolluted waters at normal temperature is found to be of the order of 10 mg/litre

 

34.The velocity of flow of water in a sedimentation tank is about 15 to 30 cm/minute


 

35.The length of rectangular sedimentation tank should not be more than 4B

where B is the width of the tank

 

36.The overflow rate for plain sedimentation tanks is about 500 to 750 litres/hour/m2


 

37.Percentage of bacterial load that can be removed from water by the process of

plain sedimentation is about 75


 

38.The settling velocity of a particle in a sedimentation tank depends on surface area of tank


 

39.The settling velocity of a particle in a sedimentation tank increases if none of the above


 

40.For a given discharge, the efficiency of sedimentation tank can be increased by

increasing the surface area of tank
