Please anyone explain the answer.

The answer will be D.

Abhijeet said: (Mar 7, 2017)  
C is correct.

D is for total area means for both side slopes.

D is the correct option.

Side wall width=d*√(1+s^).
Area of side wall =width*length
So L*d*√(1+s^) is one sloping side.

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.
