What is Least Count of Screw Gauge?

**Q.**

The pitch of the screw gauge is $1mm$ and there are $100$ divisions on the circular scale. When nothing is put in between the jaws, the zero of the circular scale lines $8$ divisions below the reference line. When a wire is placed between the jaws, the first linear scale division is clearly visible while the ${72}^{nd}$ division on the circular scale coincides with the reference line. The radius of the wire is

$1.64mm$

$1.80mm$

$0.82mm$

$0.90mm$

**Q.**Two full turns of the circular scale of a screw gauge cover a distance of 1 mm on its main scale. The total number of divisions on the circular scale is 50. Further, it is found that the screw gauge has a zero error of -0.03 mm while measuring the diameter of a thin wire, a student notes the main scale reading of 3 mm and the number of circular scale divisions in line with the main scale as 35.
