The R.L. of ground water table on the sides of a valley is 1505 m whereas R.L. of the stream water is 1475 m. If 60° slope consists of pervious soil between R.L. 1485 m to 1500 m, the gravity spring may be expected at the point of reduced level

[A]. 1500 m
[B]. 1505 m
[C]. 1475 m
[D]. 1485 m.

No calculation is required it. The solution is based on observation.

Please, anyone, explain it.

It's given that slop is previous between 1485 m to 1500 m and it means the remaining area is impervious. Hence the answer is 1485 m.

Why it can't be 1500?

Water will be at the lowest level due to gravity. Hence 1485 is correct.

Engee said: (Feb 13, 2021)  

The answer is 1485 because the pressure is maximum here.

Water is under gravity, without any external energy it is quite impossible to goes to higher level.
