b) What is the necessity of transition curve ? What are their different forms ? 4
c) Two straights AB and BC intersect at an inaccessible point B. To connect
them through a simple curve two points D and E are selected on line AB and
BC respectively. The distance DE = 180 m and the angle ADE = 145° and
