Correct Answer - Option 2 : 2860 veh/h

**Concept:**

Theoretical maximum capacity is given by,

\(C = \frac{{1000\;V}}{S}\)

Where,

C = is capacity is vehicle/hr

V = speed in km/hr

S = minimum clear distance between two vehicles

∴ S = 0.2 V + 6 ( if V is in kmph )

(or) S = 0.7 v + 6 ( if v is in m/s )

**Calculation:**

Given,

V = 40 kmph,

S = 0.2 × 40 + 6 = 14 m

\(C = \frac{{1000\;V}}{S}\)

C = (1000 × 40 )/14

⇒ C = 2857.14

As asked to rounded off to 10 units ≈ 2860 Veh/hr

** ∴ Theoretical Maximum capacity is 2860 veh/h**
