25) Name different type of threads that are available on the nuts and bolts. And how do we make these threads manually.
My answer to this question was 2 Ram type and 4 Ram type steering gear mechanisms are there on ship. Then interviewer asked me which one is better. I said 4 Ram is much better because it has one backup system. So, in case of any failure the other two Rams can operate and hence any type of hazard can be minimized.
So this was my experience of giving interview in this company and hope you have liked what I have written. If you information related to this please comment below.
