    with reference to question no. 8.

    sir, are you sure about national highway no. 7 being the longest highway!!..
    because according to NHAI website the longest highway is NH 2 (4572.457 km total length) while NH 7 is only 2164.657 km long.
    (source: http://www.nhai.org/nh.asp)
    actually i am confused about it because everybody tell NH 7 as the longest one.kindly clarify…
