Answer is 3 because in reciprocal levelling curvature of the earth is eliminated and refraction is considered while differential levelling both are eliminated.

Reciprocal levelling is the right answer.

In reciprocal leveling.

If the level is placed exactly midway between two points and staff readings are taken to determine the difference of level then the errors (due to inclined colimiation line, curvature and refraction. ) are automatically eliminated.

Reciprocal correction is eliminated the curvature, collimation and refraction correction is partially. So, C is correct.
