I'm not completely sure if this is the right sub-forum for this post, but it is related to employment/hiring so I'll go with it:
I took a civil service exam last week (upstate NY), and the test seemed quite easy overall. However there were several questions that simply seemed to have no correct answer--they essentially asked for an opinion or didn't provide enough information to make a valid selection. I'm going to outline one below that sort of stumped me. Isn't this question unanswerable, or am I missing something?
You are planning a neighborhood with a gridiron street layout, and a diagonal arterial street bisecting it. What is the best solution?
- Create infrequent intersections with the arterial at right angles.
- Create frequent intersections at acute angles.
- Curve the gridiron, creating frequent intersections at right angles.
- Create frequent intersections, but enlarge the intersection size to prevent visibility issues.
I chose (3), but I seriously can't see how this determination could be made without a lot more information about the neighborhood (population, pedestrian and car traffic counts, number of lanes on the arterial, speed limits, etc.).
