Option 2 : 4 per cent

__Limiting error:__

Limiting error is defined as the difference between the measured quantity (Am) and the true quantity (At).

Limiting error LE = Am - At

__%Limiting error (%LE):__

It can be calculated as the ratio of limiting error to the true quantity.

%LE = \(\frac{A_m -A_t }{A_t } \times 100\)

__Guaranteed accuracy error (GAE):__

It can be calculated as the ratio of limiting error to the full-scale value.

% GAE = \(\frac{Limiting\ error}{Full\ scale\ reading}\times 100=\frac{A_m -A_t }{Full\ scale\ reading} \times 100\)

__Calculation:__

GIven that,

Full-scale reading =10 A

% GAE = 1 %

True value of ammeter = At

% GAE = \(\frac{Limiting\ error}{Full\ scale\ reading}\times 100=\frac{A_m -A_t }{Full\ scale\ reading} \times 100\)

⇒ 1 = (Limiting error / 10 ) x 100

∴ Limiting error = 0.1 A

% LE = (Limiting error / True value) x 100

⇒ % LE = (0.1 / 2.5) x 100

∴ % Limiting error = 4 %
