The density of a solid ball is to be determined in an experiment. The diameter of the ball is measured with a screw gauge, whose pitch is 0.5 mm and there are 50 divisions on the circular scale. The reading on the main scale is 2.5 mm and that on the circular scale is 20 divisions. If the measured mass of the ball has a relative error of 2 %, the relative percentage error in the density is
A
0.9 %
B
2.4 %
C
3.1 %
D
4.2 %

Student I, II and III perform an experiment for measuring the acceleration due to gravity (g) using a simple pendulum. They use different length of the pendulum and/or record time for different number of oscillations. The observations area shown in the table.

Least count for length = 0.1 cm

Least count for time = 0.1 s
