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.

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.

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.
