The correct option is (b) 2.5 m

To elaborate: If the height of the dam is up to 7.5 m then the top width value according to Strange’s recommendation is 1.85 and if the height is in between 7.5 to 15 m, then the recommended value is 2.5. If the height is in between 15 to 22.5 m then the top width is 3.0 m.
