I think it's Both options B & D.

Xu (depth of N.A.) = 0.87fyAst/0.36fckb.
So, Xu proportional to Ast,
Increase with Ast.

Only option B is correct because the Neutral axis is compared with the critical Neutral axis to decide to decrease or increase. But the level arm is not compared with any critical level arm. In IS code definition of the critical level arm is not describe anywhere.

So, only option B is correct.

Yes, both B&D are correct @Ashley.

If steel is increased in the tensile zone, then the neutral axis will move down in the beam, (depth of N-axis will increase).

Lever arm decrease and Neutral axis increases.

%steel propotional to NA.

DHL said:   6 years ago
Lever arm decreases.

So, Both are true.

Ashley said:   6 years ago
D can be correct as NA increase LA decreases.

@Ranjan they didn't ask EFFECTIVE DEPTH of the slab.
