Correct Answer - Option 3 : \(2-2\dfrac{1}{2}\%\)


For making any estimate workable, additional expenses are to be added.

The followings are the additional expenses that are to be considered during estimates:

  • Extra Expenses (contingencies) – 3 to 5%
  • Contract work establishments – 1.5 to 2% (sometimes 2.5%)
  • Tools and Machinery – 1 to 1.5%
  • Contractor’s profit – 10%
  • Departmental Profit – 10 to 15%
