Question 1. Addition of grog in fireclay brick during its manufacture is advantageous, because it results in
  1.    Less shrinkage in heating, decreased apparent porosity & increased specific gravity
  2.    High strength & thermal spalling resistance
  3.    Less addition of water to get a workable plasticity & lesser time required for drying the raw refractories and hence increased rate of production
  4.    All of the above
Answer: Option D
