  • You drew your BMD wrong. There should be a moment on the fixed end. You drew it as a pinned end.

    • Hi God. ( i doubt thats your real name!)

      Thanks for commenting, however i think you may not have properly understood the question. The question requires the moment at the built-in end to be zero. So that is why the final BMD does not show any moment at this point.
