What is the zero error of this vernier caliper ???
I believe the answer is C. 0.14cm.
The zero error in vernier caliper is read by the distance by which the zero of the movable part of the scale is shifted from the zero of the cm ruler in the tool, which is the unmovable part of the tool. The movable part has a scale accuracy of 0.1 cm, while the other has a scale accuracy of 1 cm. And we always use the lowest scale, which is here the 0.1 scale which has greater accuracy with 10 times the 1 cm ruler, to find our errors.
Hope this helps!
