### GATE CE 2001

Identify, from the following, the correct value of the bending moment ${M_A}\,\,$ (in $kNm$ units) at the fixed end $A$ in the statically determinate beam shown below (with internal hinges at $B$ and $D),$ when a uniformly distributed load of $10$ $kN/m$ is placed on the spans. (Hint: Sketching the influence line for ${M_A}\,\,$ or applying the Principle of Virtual Displacements makes the solution easy).
A
$-80$
B
$-40$
C
$0$
D
$+40$
