Given option is correct don't get confused by s^1/2. Actually, it is used in manning equation in fluid mechanics and quid different from irrigation.

Given option is correct. C.

The three fundamental equations are:

V = 0.639 √fR

Where V is regime velocity in m/sec.

Af2 = 141.2 V5(2)

V = 10.8 R2/3 S1/3 ..(3)

Where S is the slope of water surface.
