Correct Answer - Option 1 : Mast

The correct answer is Mast.

  • The mast of the ship is seen first from the shore as the Earth is spherical in shape. 
  • The mast of a sailing vessel is a tall spar, or arrangement of spars, erected more or less vertically on the center-line of a ship or boat.
  • deck is a permanent covering over a compartment or a hull of a ship. On a boat or ship, the primary or upper deck is the horizontal structure that forms the "roof" of the hull, strengthening it and serving as the primary working surface.
  • hull is the watertight body of a ship or boat. The hull may open at the top (such as a dinghy), or it may be fully or partially covered with a deck.

  • The coast is defined as the area where land meets the sea or ocean, or as a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. Earth has around 620,000 kilometers of coastline. 
  • Canada's coastline is the world's longest, measuring 243,042 km (includes the mainland coast and the coasts of offshore islands).
  • India has a coastline of 7516.6 km-- 5422.6 km of mainland coastline and 1197 km of Indian islands. Indian coastline touches nine states- Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, and two union territories-- Daman and Diu and Puducherry.
