771. For orientation of a plane table with three points A, B and C, Bessel’s drill is
A. Align b through a and draw a ray towards c, align a through b and draw a ray towards c, finally align c through the point of intersection of the previously drawn rays
B. Align c through a and draw a ray towards b, align a through c and draw a ray towards b, finally align b through the point of intersection of the previously drawn rays
C. Align c through b and draw a ray towards a, align b through c and draw a ray towards a, finally align a, through the point of intersection of the previously, drawn rays
D. In the first two steps any two of the points may be used and a ray drawn towards the third point, which is sighted through the point of intersection of previously drawn rays in the final step.

776. The correction for parallax, is
A. – 8″.8 cos a
B. + .8″ sin a
C. + 8″.8 cos a

778. The force acting on a point on the surface of a rigid body may be considered to act
A. at the centre of gravity of the body
B. on the periphery of the body
C. on any point on the line of action of the force
D. at any point on the surface normal to the line of action of the force.
