A physical parameter '$$a$$' can be determined by measuring the parameters $$b$$ and  using the relation, $$a= \dfrac{b^{\alpha}c^{\beta}}{d^{\gamma}e^{\delta}}.$$ If the maximum errors in the measurement of $$b, ~c, ~d,~\text{and}~e$$ are $$b_1\%,~c_1\%,~d_1\%~\text{and}~e_1\%$$
1. $$(b_1+c_1+d_1+e_1)\%$$
2. $$(b_1+c_1-d_1-e_1)\%$$
3. $$(\alpha b_1+\beta c_1-\gamma d_1-\delta e_1)\%$$
4. $$(\alpha b_1+\beta c_1+\gamma d_1+\delta e_1)\%$$
