What is meaning of circuitous ?

Sundar said: (May 31, 2011)  
Circuitous:(of a route or journey) Longer than the most direct way.

S.B said: (Mar 18, 2013)  
Circular also can be right option, because in Thesaurus, 'circular' is a Synonym of 'circuitous'.

The given words mean the following.

Circuitous: Being or taking a roundabout or not direct.

Circular : Moving in or forming a circle.

Circumscribed : To restrict within limits.

Longest : Extending or traveling a relatively great distance.

Back road : Often unpaved country road.

We had to pay more taxi fare because the driver brought us by a circuitous route.

Longest means the longest route of that destination.

So, the answer may be longest because the longest route has a highest fare.

Dhana said: (Mar 7, 2017)  
Why not longest?

Sourabh said: (Sep 8, 2017)  
Yes, longest route is also correct.

Zunaid said: (Jul 27, 2018)  
No, longest could be used because there is 'a' before blank 'the longest' is used together.
