As per IS it is 135 litre/capita/day.

Is code is 135 litre/capita/day.

Now, 135/(24*60)= 0.09375 litre/capita/minute.

capita is multiplying per minute.

The given answer cannot be correct as it shows demand is 1.8 for 5-10 user and 1.2 for 15 users.

135 lit/capita/day is as per WHO not as per IS code.

Here question is for peak discharge, not daily demand.
