The question is indeed very vague and your alternate answers do make sense... but if the answer key says that it is Mercury, then i guess there's no other option than to learn it that way...
Seeing the past few years trend in the UCEED exam what I can say is if you are from general category then target a rank under 20 to increase your chances of getting a seat in IIT Bombay.
The rank changes every year depending upon the cutoff and difficulty level of the exam. In 2017, the last merit rank admitted in NIFT Bangalore for the respective program is given below:-
Last merit admitted in General category
1.) FD- 319
2.) AD - 354
3.) TD - 617
4.) KD - 706
5.) FC - 230
6.) BFT - 179
If you are considering masters from NIFT Bangalore then below is last years trends
7.) M.Des - 80
8.) MFM - 79
9.) MFT - 52
I hope now you will have a fair idea for which rank to target to get into NIFT Bangalore
For single point perspective, you need to choose a 'vanishing point' , that is. the point at which all objects vanish.
Then, draw lines from this point to where you want to draw the objects and then draw the objects' outlines based on that.
Also, do keep in the mind the fact that the sizes of the objects that are closer to you are larger and vice versa.
Unfortunately, there has been a notification from the Council of Architecture (CoA) which makes Science Stream (Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics) mandatory in class 12. This is the basic requirement to pursue the B.Arch program at an school in India.
However, if you are looking for schools abroad, then you would have to identify the schools you are interested in and then contact those for more accurate information.
Mainly if you u come for shading and texture. You have two options. First u can use pencils of different shades. And the other way is you can take help of pressure. By applying different pressure you got different shades and texture.
Really not much. But as a architect you have to know the nature force and it's effect. So your answer is yes. But only part related to architecture.
Yes, because as an architect you must know the mechanics and forces that comes into picture when you built or hypothesize a structure. In architecture, physics plays the role in things like stress, strain, load bearing forces, gravitational forces etc.
chemistry on the other hand deals with the materials used like chemical composition, which type of material will be used i.e steel, iron, aluminium, iron etc.
The cutoff for getting admission through the NATA Entrance Exam changes every year and the competition is getting fierce too. Don't look for the minimum percentage cause both of your marks will be taken into consideration i.e 50% of 12th score + 50% of NATA score.
Now coming to your question, you should target atleast 85% in 12th to increase your chances of getting admission into the prestigious colleges.
