$\Sigma M_E = 0$

$6R_1 + 120 = 20(4)(6) + 60(4)$

$R_1 = 100 \, \text{ kN}$

$\Sigma M_B = 0$

$6R_2 = 20(4)(0) + 60(2) + 120$

$R_2 = 40 \, \text{kN}$

**To draw the Shear Diagram**

- V
_{A}= 0 - V
_{B}= V_{A}+ Area in load diagram

V_{B}= 0 - 20(2) = -40 kN

V_{B2}= V_{B}+ R_{1}= -40 + 100 = 60 kN] - V
_{C}= V_{B2}+ Area in load diagram

V_{C}= 60 - 20(2) = 20 kN

V_{C2}= V_{C}- 60 = 20 - 60 = -40 kN - V
_{D}= V_{C2}+ Area in load diagram

V_{D}= -40 + 0 = -40 kN - V
_{E}= V_{D}+ Area in load diagram

V_{E}= -40 + 0 = -40 kN

V_{E2}= V_{E}+ R_{2}= -40 + 40 = 0

**To draw the Moment Diagram**

- M
_{A}= 0 - M
_{B}= M_{A}+ Area in shear diagram

M_{B}= 0 - ½ (40)(2) = -40 kN·m - M
_{C}= M_{B}+ Area in shear diagram

M_{C}= -40 + ½ (60 + 20)(2) = 40 kN·m - M
_{D}= M_{C}+ Area in shear diagram

M_{D}= 40 - 40(2) = -40 kN·m

M_{D2}= M_{D}+ M = -40 + 120 = 80 kN·m - M
_{E}= M_{D2}+ Area in shear diagram

M_{E}= 80 - 40(2) = 0 - Moment curve BC is a downward parabola with vertex at C'. C' is the location of zero shear for segment BC.
**Location of zero moment at segment BC:**

By squared property of parabola:

3 - x)2 / 50 = 32 / (50 + 40)

3 - x = 2.236

x = 0.764 m from B
