12.
The bearing capacity of a soil depends upon
size of the particles
shape of the particles
cohesive properties of particles
internal frictional resistance of particles
all the above.

13.
A direct shear test possesses the following disadvantage:
A relatively thin thickness of sample permits quick drainage
A relatively thin thickness of sample permits quick dissipation of pore pressure developed during the test
As the test progresses the area under shear, gradually changes
none of these.

15.
The pressure that builds up in pore water due to load increment on the soil, is termed
excess pore pressure
excess hydrostatic pressure
hydrodynamic pressure
all the above.
