Why not terrain?

Dolly said: (Aug 16, 2018)  

Because it is pavement width (which is metalled (blacktop) ) not formation width or road width.

Terrain is a formation width.

I think D. All of the above is the correct answer.

I think it is Type of traffic.

Width of single, multilane, double lane etc preceded by IRC, which is fix. So, no of lanes will constitute the total width of the pavement.

Why not type of traffic?

It should be D.

The width of the pavement is fixed.

Nibjyoti Bhuyan said: (Sep 25, 2021)  
Yes the answer should be D.

Ali Raza said: (Oct 14, 2021)  
An answer is a number of lanes because lanes are fixed. Type of traffic doesn't relate to it as the width of the lane is the same for all i.e 3.5m.

Also, terrain doesn't affect formation width.
