This answer is right.

5/8th is for design purpose.

Answer 7/8th is also correct as it is limiting value.

The effective throat thickness in case of incomplete penetration butt weld is taken as 7/8th of the thickness of the thinner part joined.

But for the purpose of stress calculation, a required effective throat thickness not exceeding 5/8th of the thickness of thinner part joined should be used.

It's 5/8 * throat thickness.

For partial penetration - 5/8tmin.
For incomplete penetration - 7/8 tmin.
