III. 1. Mechanical Drawing.

[One hour allowed for this paper.]

1. A LONG piece of rectangular timber, 4 inches by 3 inches on the cross section, lies on the ground on one of its edges, and is penetrated in the direction of its length by a hole 2 inches in diameter, the axes of the timber and of the hole corresponding.

Project the true section of the two made by cutting through the timber at right angles with the axis and at an angle of 45° with the ground plane.

2. Draw the plan of a square of 3 inch sides when two sides are inclined to the horizon at 20° and 30°.

[blocks in formation]

3. An hexagonal prism of 3 inch sides is penetrated through the centre of two opposite sides at an angle of 30' with its axis by a cylindrical pipe of 2 inches external and 13 inches internal diameter.

Project the true form of the section made by cutting through the intersection of the axes of the prism and the pipe at an angle of 120° with the axis of the pipe.

4. Draw the plan of a circular plane of 3 inches diameter inclined at an angle of 30° to the horizon.

III. 2. freehand Drawing from the flat.

[One hour allowed.] An outline drawing of a flower was given with the following directions:

The Student is required to copy in pencil on this paper the above flower, increasing the scale so that AB is enlarged to CD opposite. Precise imitation and clearness of outline is necessary. No instruments or means of measurement of any

kind will be allowed.

III. 2. Drawing from Models.

[One hour allowed.] THE Examiner was instructed to select a chair, framed square and with square legs, and to place it on a table, sufficiently advanced in front of the Candidates, and so that all should more or less see it at an angle, with the seat above or below the level of the eye.

III. 2. Drawing from Memory.

[One hour allowed for this Study. The Candidates may add any amount of shadow that they think necessary to the full expression of the subject.]

THE Candidate is required to make a careful drawing, from memory, of a small square table with four straight legs, supporting on its top a glass fish globe. The eye of the draughtsman is to be supposed above the rim of the globe.
