Any gradient on a road is said to be an exceptional gradient, if it is

[A]. more than ruling gradient
[B]. less than average gradient
[C]. more than floating gradient
[D]. less than minimum gradient or more than maximum gradient.

Answer: Option D

I think less than minimum gradient should not be counted in exceptional gradient. Exception gradient is very steep and can be provided for a short span only. Whereas less than minimum gradient can be provided for a very long duration as well even it is not objectionable.

I Agree with you @Anuj.

A is the right answer and not use more than 100m.

Amar said: (Aug 7, 2018)  
Answer D is the correct answer.

And the maximum length of an exceptional gradient should not exceed 60m in one km road length.

No, the correct answer must be A.

More or less than the ruling gradient? Anyone explain the correct answer.

Exceptional > Limiting > Ruling > Minimum.

Gradients are divided into the following categories:

1. Ruling gradient.
2. Limiting gradient.
3. Exceptional gradient.
4. Minimum gradient.
5. Average gradient.
6. Floating gradient.

Option C can only be the right one.

More then the ruling gradient is the correct answer.

Yes floating gradient is right answer.
