787. While working on a plane table, the correct rule is:
A. Draw continuous lines from all instrument stations
B. Draw short rays sufficient to contain the points sought
C. Intersection should be obtained by actually drawing second rays
D. Take maximum number of sights as possible from each station to distant objects.

788. If the plane table is not horizontal in a direction at right angles to the alidade, the line of sight is parallel to the fiducial edge only for
A. horizontal sights
B. inclined sights upward
C. inclined sight downward
D. none of these.
