Standard rain gauge. The standard NWS rain gauge, developed at the start of the 20th century, consists of a funnel emptying into a graduated cylinder, 2 cm in radius, which fits inside a larger container which is 20 cm in diameter and 50 cm tall.

Two types of the rain gauge.

1. Recording type.
2. Non-recording type.

In India, we are using non-recording type (Symons rain gauge).
So, 30 cm is the correct answer.
