Pick up the correct statement from the following:
For a uniformly distributed load, the shear force varies linearly
For a uniformly distributed load, B.M. curve is a parabola
For a load varying linearly, the shear force curve is a parabola
For a load varying linearly, the B.M. curve is a cubic parabola
All the above.
