Size = 0.4*0.05 = 0.2.

Length = 5 meters.

= 0.2*5*450 = 450.

C is the right answer.

0.4*0.5 = 0.2.
L = 5 m
= 5*0.2*450 = 450.

It ask for cutting not total.

Ranjitha said: (May 4, 2016)  
@Rajnish

The length of drain = 5m.

Width of drain as per figure = 0.5m.
Depth of drain as per figure = 0.4m.

Total qty = 5 * 0.5 * 0.4 = 1 cum.

As per the question, cum excavation rate is 450%.

So the total cost required for excavation of drain is = 1 * 450 = Rs.450.

Therefore, the answer is C.

@Ranjitha is correct.

M.Rashid said: (Feb 4, 2017)  
C is the right answer. I agree.

Pratap said: (Feb 9, 2017)  
I think that Rs. 450 is given for per 100 cum.

Which means its Rs. 4.5 per cum.

5*0.5*0.4=1cum at 450 = Rs.450 is right. So the answer is C.

Out of the quantities of various item earthwork in an excavation in the foundation, PCC works in the foundation with 1:4:8 proportion, bricks work 1:6 foundation and plinth, damp proof course 2.5 cm thick, plastering 1.6 both side of wall and plinth wall.

5*.5 *.4 = 1 * 450 = 450 answer.

Ranguwal said: (Mar 29, 2018)  
The dimensions in figure are in which unit? mm, m, cm? Please tell me.

Ranguwal said: (Mar 29, 2018)  
According to the answer, the dimensions should be in cm.

So,
Quantity is - (500 cm ) x (400 cm ) x (500 cm) or 5m x 4m x 5m = 20m x 5m =100m
& rate is 450 for %cum means 450 rs for 100cum and answer is 450.

E/W= 5 * 0.5 * 0.4 = 1 m3.

The Cost of E/W= 1 * 450 = 450.
