I think it should be C because otherwise the zero end can shift slightly (in our viewpoint) and measurement will be wrong. So both statements a and b are correct and the answer is C.

No as it causes a parallax error. It should be option A. If you don't believe me then try it yourself with a scale and measuring a line segment from different eye positions. You will see that, the measurement varies slightly every time. That's why option A is correct.

No guys. Human eye can't focus simultaneously on two points. To avoid parallax error , eye should be on the point of measurement to be taken.Hence given answer is correct in my view. You may comment.
