Proportional to the tangent of the angle of shearing resistance.
The shear strength of cohesionless soil is reduced as the water pressure inside the pores of the soil mass increases. Experimentally, a series of consolidated drained triaxial tests with back pore water pressure was run on samples of saturated uniform dense sand.
Hence the correct answer is option B.
