Its diesel cycle because in,

[A] Carnot cycle it consists of two isothermal and two reverseable adiabatic processes.

[B] Stirling cycle it consists of two isothermal and two constant volume processes.

[c] Otto cycle it consists of two constant volume and two isentropic processes .

Actually it should be duel cycle diesel do not have both constant pressure and constant volume both only constant pressure.

Its. Diesel cycle. Because in diesel cycle heat is supplied to the system at constant pressure. but heat rejected or work obtained at constant volume process. And rather than the two process. I reversible isentropic process is also there.

Please correction vipul that work is not obtain at const vol but in adiabatic expansion process.

Process 1 to 2 is isentropic compression of the fluid (blue).
Process 2 to 3 is reversible constant pressure heating (red).
Process 3 to 4 is isentropic expansion (yellow).
Process 4 to 1 is reversible constant volume cooling (green).

Process 1 to 2 is isentropic compression of the fluid (blue). cp/cv = 1.4.

Process 2 to 3 is reversible constant pressure heating (red). w = 0.

Process 3 to 4 is isentropic expansion (yellow). cp/cv = 1.4.

Process 4 to 1 is reversible constant volume cooling (green).

Actually it's dual cycle because Otto cycle only constant volume cycle & diesel cycle is constant process cycle. So the answer is dual cycle.

Higher efficiency that cannot engine isotropic compressor and isothermal expansion but it not satisfied to nowadays so diesel engine was used.
