In an exposure of the deuterium-filled 15 ft bubble chamber, σ(νμn→νμX)σ(νμp→νμX) is measured to be 1.01±0.14. The ratios of neutral-current to charged-current cross sections are 0.30±0.03, 0.22±0.03, and 0.49±0.06 for D2, n, and p targets, respectively, which imply values uL2=0.19±0.06 and dL2=0.13±0.04 for the neutral-current chiral couplings. Evidence for both u- and d-quark jets in neutral-current reactions is observed in distributions of energy fraction of the fastest hadron of either charge from each event.
