Hiya CEans 😁

here is one simple quiz for you. 😀 i had set these for a club activity in my college. now you guys try to answer these questions 😁

1. “Water is the symbol of life and wealth, and the inward motion of the water symbolizes the retention of wealth”

This is the principle with which a beautiful structure has been built. Name this civil engineering wonder and also what this and its surrounding signify symbolically as a single entity.


2. Guess who these two people in the first pic are.

hint: the two are related to civil engineering and architecture fields respectively. there can be no civil engineering student without knowing the name of the first person. so ask your civil engineering friends. 😁 the second has built the structure which every one here must be knowing 😀


3. Identify the structure shown in second picture.

Hint: Walls of stone will stand upstream to the west
To hold back Wushan's clouds and rain
Till a smooth lake rises in the narrow gorges


4. Is this easy?
Which city’s sky line is this?

5. This is the floor plan of a very famous structure. Guess it.

6. This stamp features which bridge?

7. Which award did this structure receive?

8. The logo of this company signifies that it has every thing A-Z and thus brings a smile on the customers’ face.

Which company is it?

no. 😔 but good attempt.
as a civil engineer you must have read his name a 100 times in your text book. when i tell you the answer you'll hit yourself for not thinking of that person 😁 try once more 😁
