Based on ABRAM'S LAW.

Abram equation only gives the relation b/w strength and water required. It doesn't talk about quality.

What is the right answer?

Because I think strength also depends on quality and quantity of cement, because cement is the main ingredient of concrete.

Please explain it.

I agree with you @Ram Soni.

Can anyone explain the right answer?

I think the right answer is A.

I didn't agree at all, in books it is clearly given that, as per Abhram law for WC ratio, for workable plastic concrete, the strength of workable plastic concrete is purely depend on water content used in a proportion of concrete. And it's quite independent upon the quantity of cement & aggregate used.

Given answer is correct, it is saying "it does not depend" in option C and D. Therefore by marking option D, it means it depends on quantity and quality, which is quite obvious.

Actually, D is the right answer because it is asking about fresh concrete strength.

A is right.

Because if the quantity of cement is zero. 'then how concrete get the strength?
