# A man wishes to estimate the distance of a nearby tower from him. He stands at point A in front of tower C and spots a very distant object O in line with AC. He then walks perpendicular to AC up to B, a distance of 100 m, and looks at O and C again. Since O is very distant, the direction BO is practically the same as AO; but he finds the line of sight of C shifted from the original line of sight by an angle θ = $40°$ (θ is known as ‘parallax’), the distance of the tower C from his original position A is: (1) 119 m (2) 126 m (3) 320 m (4) 219 m

We measure the period of oscillation of a simple pendulum. In successive measurements, the readings turn out to be 2.63 s, 2.56 s, 2.42 s, 2.71 s and 2.80 s. The average absolute error and percentage error, respectively, are:

1.  0.22 s and 4

2.  0.11 s and 4

3.  4 and 0.11 s

4.  5 and 0.22 s
