Mechanical Objective Questions | 12 Ultimate Cheat Sheet on Mechanical Engineering Objective Type

Mechanical Objective Question

Mechanical Objective Questions

Mechanical Objective Question 1. The purpose of jigs and fixtures are to

a. Increased production rate

b. Increased machining accuracy

c. Facilitate interchangeable manufacturing

d. Enable employ less skilled operators

e. All of the above


All of the above

Mechanical Objective Question 2. Which one of the following methods produces gear by generating process

a. Hobbing

b. Casting

c. Punching

d. Milling

e. Broaching



Mechanical Objective Question 3. Tool life of the cutting tool is most affected by

a. Cutting speed

b. Tool geometry

c. Cutting feed and depth

d. Microstructure of material being cut

e. Not using coolant and lubricant


Cutting speed

Mechanical Objective Question 4. Metal in machining operation is removed by

a. Tearing chips

b. Distortion of metal

c. Shearing the metal across a zone

d. Cutting the metal across a zone

e. Pushing the metal with tool


Shearing the metal across a zone

Mechanical Objective Question 5. A feeler gauge is used to check

a. Radius

b. Screw pitch

c. Surface roughness

d. Unsymmetrical shape

e. Thickness of clearance


Thickness of clearance

Mechanical Objective Question 6. Interpolator in a CNC machine

A. controls spindle speed

B. coordinates axes movements

C. operates tool changer

D. commands canned cycle


Coordinates axes movements


As interpolator provides two functions:

  1. It computes individual axis velocities to drive the tool along the programmed path
    at given feed rate.
  2. It generates intermediate coordinate positions along the programmed path.

Mechanical Objective Question 7. For an Oldham coupling used between two shafts, which among the following statements are correct?

I. Torsional load is transferred along shaft axis.

II. A velocity ratio of 1:2 between shafts is obtained without using gears

III. Bending load is transferred transverse to shaft axis.

IV. Rotation is transferred along shaft axis.

A. I and II

B. I and IV

C. II and III

D. II and IV


I and IV


Oldham’s coupling is used to transmit power between two shafts having small angular misalignment. There is no bending load or reduction/increase of speed criterion. Hence only I and IV statements are correct.

8. In an arc welding process, welding speed is doubled. Assuming all other process parameters to be constant, the cross sectional area of the weld bead will

A. Increase by 25%

B. Increase by 50%

C. Reduce by 25%

D. Reduce by 50%


Reduce by 50%

9. Under optimal conditions of the process the temperatures experienced by a copper work piece in fusion welding, brazing and soldering are such that

(A) Twelding > Tsoldering > Tbrazing

(B) Tsoldering > Twelding > Tbrazing

(C) Tbrazing > Twelding > Tsoldering

(D) Twelding > Tbrazing > Tsoldering


Twelding > Tbrazing > Tsoldering


Under the optimal conditions temperature of different processes experienced by a copper work piece is given by Twelding > Tbrazing > Tsoldering

10. The part of a gating system which regulates the rate of pouring of molten metal is

(A) pouring basin

(B) runner

(C) choke

(D) ingate




Rate of poring molten metal is regulated by choke. As, the choke area is the minimum area of the gating system, which decide the gating will be pressurized and unpressurised [Or turbulence will occur or not]. Hence, choke is the part which regulates the rate of pouring.

11. The non-traditional machining process that essentially requires vacuum is

(A) electron beam machining

(B) electro chemical machining

(C) electro chemical discharge machining

(D) electro discharge machining


Electron beam machining


In electron- beam machining, vacuum conditions are created/required for material removal, because electrons move efficiently in vacuum.

12. For flow of viscous fluid over a flat plate, if the fluid temperature is the same as the plate temperature, the thermal boundary layer is

(A) thinner than the velocity boundary layer

(B) thicker than the velocity boundary layer

(C) of the same thickness as the velocity boundary layer

(D) not formed at all


Not formed at all


For flow of viscous fluid over a flat plate, if the fluid temperature is the same as the plate temperature, the thermal boundary layer is not formed at all.


  1. i am very impress but i want more and more this type question.
    Plz give me better solution.
