[A]. 0.64
[B]. 1.65
[C]. 0.32
[D]. 0.94

The coefficient of contraction It is the ratio between the area of the jet at the vena contracta to the area of the orifice.

Cc = Area at vena contracta/ Area of orifice.

The typical value may be taken as 0.64 for a sharp orifice (concentric with the flow channel).
