Option B is correct.

Preetish said: (Sep 7, 2019)  
Option D is correct.

Because in Option B we are considering only about the pavement and shoulders, but if there is a separation in the road then we are not considering that. So, Option B is partially correct.

And Option D is correct for all the cases.
