    I cannot see reactions in your diagram but the reaction at C will be zero

    My friend told me that as well. But can you explain me why?

    If you increase the mass at B, bit by bit there will come an instant where the rod will topple over (equilibrium is broken by turning about D)

    When this happens the rod will not be touching the support at C in other words the reaction at C will be zero
