Solid Mechanics Stress Blocks

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hey guys,
    I have a test coming up soon, and our lecturer gave us a sample test. I am working through it, but we have not been given any answers to confirm if what we are doing is correct.

    The Question:
    "For the simply supported beam (with upstand) shown in Figure 3b, at the points noted by W, X, Y
    and Z, choose the appropriate stress block from the choices A to F below, and fill in your results in
    the Table provided."

    Here is a scan of the question in full with my attempt at it. I think it is correct, but it would be good to have someone confirm it for me.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Thanks guys, help would be much appreciated.

    I think Z should be F, no?
