Please see attached sketch --

Suspended slabs on threaded rods. Which bolt is carrying the heaviest load? Why?

Is the load on bold B greater, equal or less than bolt C?

somone correct me if I'm wrong please, I always picked "b" because load on "a" doesn't change, still has the load of all plates on it if the plates were stacked. "A" has the most load on it, but i think load in "B" changes the most because now it carries load of the 2nd plate

In simple gravity terms:
A=B, C=D, B>C
AB carries both plates. CD carries lower plate.

Is it correct to say that B=2C?

No. There isn't enough information to come to that conclusion.
