# Compressors & Turbines & Jet Engines Mcqs

This set of Mechanical engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on study of “ Compressors & Turbines & Jet Engines ”. These questions are chosen from a collection of most authoritative and best reference books on Mechanical engineering. Our aim is to prepare an individual for competitive exams like NTS, GAT, ECAT, University and College entrance exams, Jobs and interviews. One should practice our MCQS to assimilate Compressors & Turbines & Jet Engines comprehensively.
