A student performs an experiment to determine the Young's modulus of a wire, exactly 2 m long, by Searle's method. In a particular reading, the student measures the extension in the length of the wire to be 0.8 mm with an uncertainty of $$\pm0.05\;\mathrm{mm}$$ at a load of exactly 1.0 kg. The student also measures the diameter of the wire to be 0.4 mm with an uncertainty of $$\pm0.01\;\mathrm{mm}$$. Take g = 9.8 m/s2 (exact). The Young's modulus obtained from the reading is

A
$$\left(2.0\;\pm\;0.3\right)\times10^{11}\;\mathrm N/\mathrm m^2$$
B
$$\left(2.0\;\pm\;0.2\right)\times10^{11}\;\mathrm N/\mathrm m^2$$
C
$$\left(2.0\;\pm\;0.1\right)\times10^{11}\;\mathrm N/\mathrm m^2$$
D
$$\left(2.0\;\pm\;0.05\right)\times10^{11}\;\mathrm N/\mathrm m^2$$
