Consider the plane truss with load $$P$$ as shown in the figure. Let the horizontal and vertical reactions at the joint $$B$$ be $$HB$$ and $${V_B},$$ respectively and $${V_C}$$ be the vertical reaction at the joint $$C.$$ Which one of the following sets gives the correct values of $${V_B},\,\,{H_B}$$ and $${V_C}$$?

A
$${V_B} = 0;\,\,{H_B} = 0;\,\,{V_C} = P$$
B
$${V_B} = P/2;\,\,{H_B} = 0;\,\,{V_C} = P/2$$
C
$${V_B} = P/2;\,\,{H_B} = P\left( {\sin \,{{60}^ \circ }} \right);\,\,{V_C} = P/2$$
D
$${V_B} = P;\,\,{H_B} = P\left( {\cos \,{{60}^ \circ }} \right);\,\,{V_C} = 0$$
