A square plate is supported in four different ways (configurations $(P)$ to $(S)$ as shown in the figure). A couple moment $C$ is applied on the plate. Assume all the members to be rigid and mass-less, and all joints to be frictionless. All support links of the plate are identical.
The square plate can remain in equilibrium in its initial state for which one or more of the following support configurations?
- Configuration $(P)$
- Configuration $(Q)$
- Configuration $(R)$
- Configuration $(S)$
