Option d.

Explanation:

Since the case is that of a simply supported slab so using the RANKINE GRASHOFF theory we have maximum short span moment = (r^4/ (1+r^4) x (wl^2/8). Here the term wl^2/8 is actually the maximum moment since both the spans are the same.

So the coefficient of this maximum moment =r^4/ (1+r^4), putting the value of r=1 (coz both the spans are same) we get;

1^4/ (1+1^4) = 1/2=0.5.

Hence the answer is 0.5 which is multiplied to the maximum bending moment.

Moment is transfered in two direction because slab is two dimentional, so that can be treated as half in one direction.

Maximum bending moment at the center i.e L/2.

Applying the correction factor as from Marcus method. It give the answer.
