Subject : it-skills
Instructions:
  • Answer 46 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Nominal size of a framing member






2. Pictorial drawing of mechanism to show how parts interrelated to each other






3. Used to represent visible lines on a drawing






4. Used to define specific size requirements of openings in the building






5. To draw a figure around another touching it at points but not cutting it.






6. A cylindrical recess around a hole - usually to receive a bolt head or nut






7. Three dimensional drawing where the front faces forward - and the depth dimensions go back at angles - usually 15 - 30 - or 45 degrees. Used when most information on drawing is on the front of the object.






8. The amount of space occupied by a substance or object or enclosed within a container.






9. Actual size of framing member






10. User coordinate system - used in the construction of 3D solids in AutoCAD






11. Turning around an axis or center point.






12. An orthographic drawing of multiple parts that shows relationship of parts to each other in a mechanism






13. A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both parallel and equal in length






14. Gradual diminution of width or thickness in an elongated object.






15. A manufacturing process that forces material through a shaped opening.






16. The sum of all the areas of all surfaces of a solid.






17. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings






18. Three dimensional drawing that depth lines disappear to a vanishing point. Used mainly in architectural presentations






19. To cut internal threads.






20. A straight line from the center to the circumference of a circle or sphere.






21. For a three-dimensional object - a line that cannot be seen because view of it is obstructed by part of the object or of another object






22. Exact drawing representation of a given thread type






23. Three dimensional drawing made up of equal angles of 120 degrees - most common 3-D drawing used in industry






24. Used in AutoCAD to show various materials in sectional drawings






25. Used by architect to design buildings to the client's wants and needs






26. A drawing that shows an object as it appears to the human eye - includes isometric and perspective drawings






27. An estimated cost used by architects to begin schematic design process






28. Mass divided by volume.






29. Used in perspectives for determining the direction of the depth lines






30. Simple method of drawing threads on an orthographic drawing






31. To draw a figure inside another touching it at points but not cutting it.






32. To flip a shape over a line of symmetry and double the image.






33. A line used to represent the middle of a circle in engineering drawings






34. A regular oval shape traced by a point moving in a plane so that the sum of its distances from two other points is constant.






35. Horizontal section through building - shows width and depth of building






36. A conical-shaped recess around a hole - often used to receive a tapered screw.






37. The amount of matter an object contains.






38. Constant - non-numerical relationships between the parts of a geometric figure. Examples include parallel - perpendicular - and concentric.






39. A document that show the quantity of each type of direct material required to make a product






40. A two dimensional drawing of the front - top - and side views of an object






41. Counter space requirements on either side of sink






42. Vertical cut through house - used to show construction components of building






43. Amount of money that clients have to spend on cost of building






44. A small angled surface formed between two surfaces.






45. Used to make lines of varying colors and widths on CAD drawings






46. A straight line passing from side to side through the center of a circle or sphere.
