A concrete using air entrained cement 

  1. Has strength less than 10-15%
  2. Has less resistance for weathering
  3. Is more plastic and workable
  4. All of the above

Answer: C. Is more plastic and workable

A concrete using air entrained cement is more plastic and workable.

Solution

Air entraining cement is manufactured by adding a small amount of air entraining agent with grinding OPC clinker at the time of grinding. Air entraining agents are aluminum powder, zinc powder, calcium ligno-sulphate etc.

A concrete using air entrained cement will have more workability and minute voids will increase resistance against freezing and sealing actions of salts.
