A survey line was measured to be $285.5 \mathrm{~m}$ with a tape having a nominal length of $30 \mathrm{~m}$. On checking, the true length of the tape was found to be $0.05 \mathrm{~m}$ too short. If the line lay on a slope of 1 in $10,$ the reduced length (horizontal length) of the line for plotting of survey work would be

(A) $283.6 \mathrm{~m}$

(B) $284.5 \mathrm{~m}$

(C) $285.0 \mathrm{~m}$

(D) $285.6 \mathrm{~m}$
