Two bolted plates under tension with alternative arrangement of bolt holes are shown in figure $1$ and $2$. The hole diameter, pitch, and gauge length are $d$, $p$ and $g$, respectively.

Which one of the following conditions must be ensured to have higher net tensile capacity of configuration shown in Figure $2$ than that shown in Figure $1$?

  1. $p^2 > 2gd$
  2. $p^2 < \sqrt{4gd}$
  3. $p^2 > 4gd$
  4. $p > 4gd$
