Agree with you @Namita.

It's a plane surface, not a flat surface, so the given answer is correct.

Flat surface do not have straight lines.

Correct @Asif Khaliq.

A true flat surface will not be represented by widely space contours but it will wholly be contained between two contours very far from each other. In the case of inclined plane surface, the lines of equal elevation are straight (as a mentioned plane) and thus are parallel. Thus C is the right answer.

Flat surfaces is the rights answer.

Yes, right @Sumit.

Close together: steep ground.
Uniformly spaced: uniform slope.
Straight, parallel and equally spaced: plane surface.

Space between contour represent elevation difference.

In a flat surface, as elevation difference is very less thus widely space contour is used. As we know a particular contour line represents one particular elevation.

It's a steep.

Contour deals with elevation difference. So how can a flat surface have widely spaced contour?
