### Discussion :: Estimating and Costing - Section 1 (Q.No.29)

29.

The area of a sloping surface of a protective embankment of mean height d, side slopes S : 1 and length L is

 [A]. d x d x s [B]. d2 x (ds)2 [C]. L.D 1 + s2 [D]. 2 LD 1 + s2

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Kamruz said: (Jan 6, 2017) It should be D.

 Apurba Maity said: (Feb 14, 2017) The answer will be D.

 Abhijeet said: (Mar 7, 2017) C is correct. D is for total area means for both side slopes.

 Murali said: (Sep 4, 2017) D is the correct option.

 Bhoopendr said: (Dec 31, 2017) Side wall width=d*√(1+s^). Area of side wall =width*length So L*d*√(1+s^) is one sloping side.

 Tanu said: (Feb 15, 2018) Here area of side slopes at both faces; 2LD√(1+s^2), so the answer should be an option (D).

 Tanu said: (Apr 2, 2020) I think the answer should be (D) as area of the sloping surface of a protective embankment indicate both sides of the section.
