. b. False
.
.

. a. True
. b. False
.
.

5. 3.02 For the purposes of voyage analysis, what is a simple voyage?
. a. A voyage from one load port to one discharge port with one cargo
. b. A voyage from one load port to one discharge port with any number of cargoes
. c. A voyage where all measurements were taken with automatic equipment only
. d. A voyage that relied on carefully proved meters at both the load port and the discharge port
6. 3.14 Metered quantities are always more accurate than those obtained from static shore tank measurements.
. a. True
. b. False
.
.
7. 3.07 For what purpose is a Letter of Protest issued to a terminal or vessel?

. b. To allow the terminal or vessel to respond to a complaint
. c. To formally note that a situation has occurred which may require intervention from the client(s)
. d. To give the terminal and vessel time to improve their operations before the next cargo movement
8. 3.15 Whether a shoreline is full, partly full or empty can affect accurate measurement of transferred volumes. Which documents provide guidelines for determining the fullness of pipelines between vessels and shore tanks?

. a. High vapour pressure of the cargo
. b. Excessive agitation of cargo during voyage
. c. Gauge hatches left open
. d. Answers a., b. and c. are all correct
12. 3.05 What is the primary function of a Voyage Analysis Report (VAR)?
. a. Providing a method for adjusting vessel figures for the Vessel Experience Factor (VEF)
. b. Systematically placing all data required for voyage analysis on one page
. c. Convincing shippers that the Bill of Lading is overstated
. d. Convincing receivers that there was a problem in the terminal that caused part of the cargo to be incorrectly measured
13. 3.09 What will a comparison of a vessel's departure Total Calculated Volume (TCV) and its arrival Total Calculated Volume (TCV) give an indication of?
. a. Discharge performance
. b. VEF accuracy
