Sagging B.M at the centre = Hogging B.M at support.

-W*L/2*L/4+WL/2(L/2-X) = WX^2/2.

L^2-4LX = 4X^2.

L^2-4LX+4X^2 = 8X^2.

(L-2X)^2 = 8X^2.

X = 0.207L. .

So, B is correct.

-W*L/2*L/4+WL/2(L/2-X) = WX^2/2.

L^2-4LX = 4X^2.

L^2-4LX+4X^2 = 8X^2.

(L-2X)^2 = 8X^2.

X = 0.207L. .

So, B is correct.

@All.

Max. Sagging B.M = w/8( L^2 -4a^2).

Max hogging B.M = wa^2/2.

Sagging B.M = Hogging B.M,

w/8( L^2 -4a^2)=wa^2/2,

After solving;

a=0.353l.

Max. Sagging B.M = w/8( L^2 -4a^2).

Max hogging B.M = wa^2/2.

Sagging B.M = Hogging B.M,

w/8( L^2 -4a^2)=wa^2/2,

After solving;

a=0.353l.

Max hogging B.M = wa^2/2.

Sagging B.M = Hogging B.M ( acc to ques);

a = 0.207L.

Max hogging B.M = wa^2/2.

Sagging B.M = Hogging B.M ( acc to ques);

a = 0.207L.

@Kajal.

After solving this formula;

Answer is l= 2a.

a=0.5l (E) is correct answer.

After solving this formula;

Answer is l= 2a.

a=0.5l (E) is correct answer.

Kajal is right @Naitik.

l=2a is a condition for zero bending moment at centre.

l=2a is a condition for zero bending moment at centre.
