Two equal angles $$ISA$$ $$100\,\,mm \times 100\,\,mm$$ of thickness $$10$$ $$mm$$ are placed back-to-back and connected to the either side of a gusset plate through a single row of $$16$$ $$mm$$ diameter rivets in double shear. The effective areas of the connected and unconnected legs of each of these angles are $$775$$ $$m{m^2}$$ and $$950$$ $$m{m^2},$$ respectively. If these angles are NOT Tack riveted, the net effective area of this pair of angle is
A
$$3650$$ $$m{m^2}$$
B
$$3450$$ $$m{m^2}$$
C
$$3076$$ $$m{m^2}$$
