Answer & Solution
Option: A
Explanation :The Grand Canal, known to the Chinese as the Jing–Hang Grand Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the longest as well as the oldest canal or artificial river in the world. Starting at Beijing it passes through Tianjin and the provinces of Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the city of Hangzhou, linking the Yellow River and Yangtze River.
The Grand Canal’s total length is approximately 1,104 miles while its greatest height is at 138 feet at the summit of the Shandong Mountains. Following the invention of the pound lock in the 10th century, Chinese canals never had an issue with reaching higher elevations. The pound lock was constructed by Qiao Weiyue an engineer and government official between 960 and 1279 during the Song dynasty.
