10. In the right-hand view shown in Figure 3, notice the dimension that contains 2× 70.1/70.0. In this case,
the 2x means the
A. dimension is actually 140/140.2 mm.
B. dimension also applies to another location, in this case at the bottom of the part.
C. dimension applies only between the two circular bosses at the top of the frame.
D. detail is drawn at a 2:1 scale for clarity.
11. Title block information on a drawing includes information such as
A. applicable specifications, finishing notes, and file names.
B. company name, assembly notes, welding notes, and finishing instructions.
C. material specifications, drawing scale, and drawing number.
D. drawing specifications, machining notes, welding notes, and material information.
12. An architectural print sheet labeled E2 is likely to be
A. some sort of schedule since all schedules are designated with an “E”.
B. an electrical print showing plans for installation of electrical equipment.
C. the second floor plan print in a series of working-drawing sheets.
D. an estimate of electrical work required for complete installation of the equipment.
13. How many waterproof GFI receptacles are installed in the building shown in Figure 2?
14. The distance from the top (as shown Figure 3) of the frame to the top of the center rib is
A. 108 mm.
B. 120 mm.
C. 72 mm.
D. impossible to determine from these drawings since a view is missing from this print.
15. The drawing scale of an architectural print
A. is usually 1/4″ = 1′ unless the sheet is for a site plan.
B. can be as small as 1/8″ = 1′.
C. is determined by the size of the material and the detail to be shown.
D. shouldn’t be linked to the actual size of the material being drawn.
16. Cross-hatching on the drawing in the figure indicates concrete masonry units (CMUs) are used in the

side of the second floor in Figure 5?

A. four single-acting
B. two double-acting and one single-acting
C. three double-acting and one single-acting
D. four double-acting
19. The growing use of the metric system for drawing dimensions is
A. due to the increasing requirements for global marketing of products.
B. now on the decline because U.S. companies are reluctant to adopt a foreign system.
C. because of the modern software being used to produce drawings.
D. a result of the metric (SI) system’s ease of use and simplicity.
