  1. Please rethink question 9 -- a TROUGH is a GUTTER... a MOAT is a WATER TRAP usually found outside a fortification as protection against assault.. Key words should be carrying off water... in Moats they are usually deep ditches filled with water

  2. It should be CULL and not CULT. Cult refers to a certain form of religious group and Cull refers to things that are being set aside for it is inferior in quality so it should be CULL.

  3. a beam that projects one of its supports is OVERHANGING BEAM according to Ching's visual dictionary. If extending on both supports, it is DOUBLE OVERHANGING BEAM.

    a CANTILEVER BEAM is a projecting beam supported at only one fixed end.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but this is what i know.

  8. Sir kindly review the question "
    Q.1)A tough used for carrying off water
    A. gutter
    B. none of these
    C. moat
    D. valley duet
    your answer is letter C (moat) but when i check it in Visual Dictionary book of DK Ching the meaning of moat is "a broad deep ditch ,usually filled with water". While the meaning of Gutter is "a channel of metal or wood at the eaves or on the roof for carrying off rain water". I think sir "Gutter" is the possible answer,Pls kindly clarify sir. Thanks
