The use of an excessive amount of water in cement produces low strength, but increasing shrinkage produces low strength but increasing shrinking and decreasing density and durability.
An increase in 10% above optimum may decrease the strength by approximately 15%, while an increase in 50% may decrease the strength to one-half.
Hence the correct answer is option A.
