characteristics of soils
traffic intensities
character of the road making materials
none of these.

California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test gives specifications of road-making materials.

California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test is a method of classifying and evaluating soil-subgrade and base course materials for flexible pavements.

CBR test, an empirical test, has been used to determine the material properties for pavement design.

This test measures the strength of the material and is not a true representation of the resilient modulus.

It is wrong as CBR does not take into account the characteristics of the soil making the course. It is only concerned with load.

Please, explain this answer.
