How will the draft at the center of floatation change after transferring a weight forward on a vessel?  it will increase  it will decrease  it will remain constant  it will change, depending on the location of the LCG 
What is the maximum mean draft to which a vessel may be safely loaded called?  deep draft  load line draft  calculated draft  mean draft 
What is the difference between the initial trim and the trim after loading known as?  final trim  change of draft  change of trim  trim 
For an upright vessel, draft is the vertical distance between the keel and the __________.  amidships section  waterline  Plimsoll mark  freeboard deck

The term displacement refers to which of the following?  cubic capacity of a vessel  gross tonnage of a vessel  number of long tons of water displaced by a vessel afloat  deadweight carrying capacity of a vessel 
Which statement about the free surface effect is TRUE?  It decreases in direct proportion to increasing specific gravity of the liquid in the tank.  In practice, the correction is considered to be a virtual reduction of KG.  It increases in direct proportion to the length of the tank times the breadth squared.  It decreases at increased angles of heel due to pocketing when a tank is 90% full. 
Which statement about the free surface correction is TRUE?  It is decreased if the slack tank is below the KG of the vessel.  It is added to GM at light drafts and subtracted at deep drafts.  It is increased if the slack tank is not on the centerline.  The correction decreases as the draft increases 
Which statement about the free surface effect is TRUE?  It has the same affect on initial stability whether the tank is 75% full or 25% full.  The effect can be reduced by shifting weights vertically.  The effect increases if the tank is off the centerline.  The free surface effect usually increases at angles of heel above 25°. 
Which statement about the free surface correction is TRUE?  It is increased if the slack tank is not on the centerline.  The correction decreases as the draft increases due to loading dry cargo.  It is added to GM at light drafts and subtracted at deep drafts.  It is decreased if the slack tank is below the KG of the vessel. 
Which statement about free surface is TRUE?  Pocketing occurs at small angles of inclination when a tank is 98% full.  A partially filled space with 40% surface permeability will have greater free surface effect than one with 60% surface permeability.
