Mmax = wl/4.
Bending stress = M/z
Tensile stress = w/bd
z = bd2/6.
By solving & equating we will get the answer.

Z is the moment of inertia or what?

Asay said: (Nov 21, 2017)  
Bending Stress=M(max)/Z
Tensile Stress=P/A

Since, according to question,
Bending Stress=Tensile Stress
====> L/d=2/3

So, B is the correct Answer.
