Q.4
The queue length (in number of vehicles) versus time (in seconds) plot for an approach to a signalized intersection with the cycle length of 96 seconds is shown in the figure (not drawn to scale). At time t = 0, the light has just turned red. The effective green time is 36 seconds, during which vehicles discharge at the saturation flow rate, s (in vph). Vehicles arrive at a uniform rate v (in vph), throughout the cycle. Which one of the following statements is TRUE?

A. v = 600 vph, and for this cycle, the average stopped delay per vehicle = 30 seconds
B. s = 1800 vph, and for this cycle, the average stopped delay per vehicle = 28.125 seconds
C. v = 600 vph, and for this cycle, the average stopped delay per vehicle = 45 seconds
D. s = 1200 vph, and for this cycle, the average stopped delay per vehicle = 28.125 seconds

Q.8
Elevation and temperature data for places are tabulated below Based on this data, lapse rate can be referred as
C. Neutral
D. Inversion
Explaination / Solution:

Ambient lapse rate = ((21.25 - 15.70)/(444 - 4))×1000 = 12.6 oC/km[>9.8 oC/km]
When the ambient lapse rate exceeds the adiabatic lapse rate, the ambient lapse rate is said to be super adiabatic.
