CASTING Multiple Choice Questions

Here are some MCQ for Casting. For all the mechanical students. Casting chapter is important chapter in Manufacturing Processes. So check out some casting MCQ.
Casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify. The solidified part is also known as acasting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process.
