38.

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.

 Hesan said: (Mar 9, 2016) Please calculate the question.

 Ayush Sharma said: (May 5, 2016) No calculation is required it. The solution is based on observation.

 Debashis said: (Mar 10, 2018) How to calculate? Please explain.

 Raj said: (Mar 20, 2018) Please, anyone, explain it.

 Ravi said: (Jun 10, 2018) 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.

 Prachi said: (Sep 13, 2019) @Ravi. Why it can't be 1500?

 Azaad said: (Sep 16, 2020) Water will be at the lowest level due to gravity. Hence 1485 is correct.

 Engee said: (Feb 13, 2021) @Prachi. The answer is 1485 because the pressure is maximum here.

 Leepts said: (Apr 24, 2021) Water is under gravity, without any external energy it is quite impossible to goes to higher level.
