(20 marks)

2(a) Explain the different types of Irrigation efficiencies in detail. (6 marks)

2(b) A water course has CCA of 1200 ha. The intensity of irrigation for crop A is 40% and for crop B is 35% both the crops being Rabbi crops. Crop A has kor period of 20 days and crop B has kor period of 15 days. Calculate the discharge of water course if the kor depth for Crop A is 10cm and for Crop B is 16cm. (7 marks)

2(c) What is Hydrograph and Unit Hydrograph? Draw a single peaked hydrograph and explain its components. (7 marks)

3(a) What is Runoff? What are the factors affecting runoff and methods of calculation of runoff. (10 marks)

3(b) The ordinates of a 3 hr unit hydrograph are given below:

Time 0 3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30
Ordinates (m$^3$/s) 0 10 25 20 16 12 9 7 5 3 0
