Option B does not come under equation of continuity flows.

According to me, B doesn't follow.

Rishabh said: (Jan 5, 2018)  
Continuity equation is applicable for compressible as well as incompressible fluids.

Salahuddin said: (Aug 15, 2019)  
Option D is not considered.

If flow velocity is uniform, why do we need the continuity equation?

Md said: (Jan 8, 2020)  
The continuity equation applies to all fluids, compressible and incompressible flow, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids.

Arindam said: (Aug 8, 2020)  
Flow is one dimensional.
