Which among the following straits join the Indian Ocean to Pacific Ocean?
1. Lombok Strait
2. Makassar Strait
3. Sibutu Passage
4. Mindoro Strait
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] 1, 2, 3 & 4

The maximum size of a vessel that can make passage through the Strait is referred to as Malaccamax. The strait is not deep enough (at 25 metres or 82 feet) to permit some of the largest ships (mostly oil tankers) to use it. A ship that exceeds Malaccamax will typically use the Lombok Strait, Makassar Strait, Sibutu Passage and Mindoro Strait instead.
