A torque $$T$$ is applied at the free end of a stepped rod of circular cross-sections as shown in the figure. The shear modulus of the material of the rod is $$G.$$ The expressions for diameter to produce an angular twist $$\theta$$ at the free end is
A
$${\left( {{{32TL} \over {\pi \theta G}}} \right)^{{1 \over 4}}}$$
B
$${\left( {{{18TL} \over {\pi \theta G}}} \right)^{{1 \over 4}}}$$
C
$${\left( {{{16TL} \over {\pi \theta G}}} \right)^{{1 \over 4}}}$$
D
$${\left( {{{2TL} \over {\pi \theta G}}} \right)^{{1 \over 4}}}$$
