Correct Answer - Option 1 : 15%


Rate analysis

  • It is the determination of the cost of each construction work per unit quantity.
  • This cost includes the cost of materials, labor, machinery, contractor's profit, etc.

Following Rate analysis is mainly done in civil engineering:

  1. Rate Analysis of Earthwork
  2. Rate Analysis of Brick
  3. Rate Analysis of Concrete
  4. Rate Analysis of Plaster


During rate analysis of brickwork or masonry work, 15 % on items marked is added for contractor's profit.
