Solution

## The correct option is B measuring tapeIf the object has a curved outline, we can use a measuring tape for taking measurements due to its bendable nature. The girth of a tree trunk (i.e. circumference of a trunk) can be measured by using a measuring tape as it can be bent around the tree. A plastic ruler, a metre scale and a metre rod are all made of materials which cannot be bent at all.
