In an Oedometer apparatus, a specimen of fully saturated clay has been consolidated under a vertical pressure of $\text{50 kN/m}^2$ and is presently at equilibrium. The effective stress and pore water pressure immediately on increasing the vertical stress to $\text{150 kN/m}^2$, respectively are

  1. $\text{150 kN/m}^2$ and $0$
  2. $\text{100 kN/m}^2$ and $\text{50 kN/m}^2$
  3. $\text{50 kN/m}^2$ and $\text{100 kN/m}^2$
  4. $0$ and $\text{150 kN/m}^2$
