    Using Moment distribution method:
    Using principal of superposition:

     = 190.5kN − m
    But moment at B must be zero, so applying a counter moment of 190.5 kN-m at B to make final moment at B equal to zero, Half of (-190.5 kN-m) is transferred to fixed end A.
    So,final moment at A = 
     = 189.75kN − m(clockwise) = y
    ∑F= 0 
    x + Z = 150 kN
    ∑M= 0 
    x.10 – 50 × 5 – 100 × 2 + 189.75 = 0
    10.x = 260.25
    x = 26.025 kN

    Consistency as applied to cohesive soils is an indicator of its
    • a)
      density
    • b)
      moisture content
    • c)
      shear strength
    • d)
      porosity
    Correct answer is option 'C'. Can you explain this answer?

    Consistency of soil refers to the resistance offered by it against forces that tend to deform or rupture the soil aggregate. It is related to strength.
