For manometer, a better liquid combination is one having
  • a)
    higher surface tension
  • b)
    lower surface tension
  • c)
    surface tension is no criterion
  • d)
    high density and viscosity
  • e)
    low density and viscosity.
Correct answer is option 'A'. Can you explain this answer?

Because due to surface tension there will be rise or fall of liquid depending up on the contact angle . so to measure pressure we require height raised due to pressure only , if surface tension is more then there will be errors because of height raised due to surface tension .
