Pick up the correct statement from the following:

[A]. The weight of ingredients of concrete mix, is taken in kilograms
[B]. Water and aggregates are measured in litres
[C]. The finished concrete is measured in cubic metres
[D]. 20 bags of cement make one tonne
[E]. All the above.

Answer: Option E

Aggregates are measured in liters ?

Vijay said: (Dec 8, 2013)  
Aggregate & water are measured in litre But other ingredient ?

How measure the aggregate in litres?

Ajay said: (Mar 29, 2014)  
Aggregates are only measured by volume and by weight and water by litre or volume and cement is always measured by weight. Commonly the aggregates are measured by volume but in imp st. The aggregate is measured by weight. Because aggregate is bulkable.

Aggregates are measured by weight not in litres.

How can you measure aggregate in liter?

Sujeet said: (Jun 9, 2017)  
In this type of question we need to go by options. Here options A, C and D are for sure correct but we don't have option to choose correct one. As far as aggregate measurement is concern it can be measured in terms volume by using farma.

But generally we avoid volume batching because of difference in mass in wet and dry condition of aggregate.

So, final ans-all of above.

How it is possible to measure aggregates in litres?

Arjun said: (Nov 21, 2017)  
I think 1000ltr equal 1cubic meter and aggregate is measured in the cubic meter so all the answer should correct.

Nagur Shaik said: (Jan 4, 2018)  
I think so aggregate & water also while taking weight basis only since water density is 1000liter/cum but we cannot be defined exactly density of aggregate know since.

Fine and coarse aggregates are measured using gauge box or farmas. Volume of gauge box is made equal to the volume of 1 bag of cement ie 35 litres or multiple threreof. Thus fine and coarse aggregates are measured in litres. Cement is always measured by weight.

I think in option B that will be admixture not aggregates.

Aggregate is measured by weight but water is measured by a litre.

Abdul said: (Oct 21, 2019)  
Which one is the correct option?

Suraj Maity said: (Nov 16, 2019)  
How can aggregate measure by the liter.

Junaid said: (Jan 12, 2020)  
Option b is also correct.

As 1529.20 kg = 1 m3.

So, we can convert kg into m3 and then we easily convert m3 into litres.
