Balancing of travers is done by?

Reducing the error of closure is the balancing.

We can also do this by Bowditch and Empirical. I think option D is correct.

In Bowditch method, both angular and linear are given equal precision.

In axis method, angular measurements are measured accurately and corrections applied to linear measurements only.

Can anyone explain clearly?

Balancing is done by two methods 1 transit and 2 Bowditch.

If angular measurement are precise then transit method is used.

If linear measurements are precise than angular then Bowditch method is used.

Bowditch rule = this rule is used to balance the traverse when angular and linear measurement are (equally) precise.

Transit rule = this rule is used when angular measurement is (more) precise than linear measurement.

Yes. You are correct, thanks @Pankaj.

@All.

All three options are used for balancing the closed traverse and if angular measurements are more precise than linear measurements then the answer is transit rule.
