By replacing sand with dust strength increases. We have performed this test in the lab. We replaced the sand with crusher dust and as we were increasing the percentage of dust the corresponding strength also increased.

Silt content more than 10% in the sand is not allowed. According to IS code.

In option B and C fine grading is there, so the dust is also a fine material. I think that may be the reason.

Deleterious material is permitted only upto 5%. Isn't the dust deleterious one?
