Answer: c) 80%
The relationship between the relative compaction & density index is given below;
Rc = 80 + 0.2 (ID)
• Rc = Relative Compaction
• ID = Density Index
When the value of density index is zero then the relative compaction will become,
Rc = 80 + (0.2 x 0)
Rc = 80 %
Hence, the value of relative compaction is 80%.
