6.
Discharge of a centrifugal pump is
directly proportional to diameter of its impeller
inversely proportional to diameter of its impeller
directly proportional to (diameter)2 of its impeller
inversely proportional to (diameter)2 of its impeller
Explanation:

Discharge of a centrifugal pump is directly proportional to (Diameter)^2 of its impeller.

Head of a centrifugal pump is directly proportional to (Diameter)^2 of its impeller.

Power Developed of a centrifugal pump is directly proportional to (Diameter)^4 of its impeller.
