    Option 2 is the right answer.

    Suez canal is a man mad waterway to connect Mediterranean Sea and Red sea in Egypt. It opened on 17th November 1869 . The Suez canal allows ships to travel between Europe and South Asia without navigating Africa . Therefore the 7000 km long sea distance reduces between Europe and India.

    It is 193.30 km long , 24 m deep and 205 m wide.

    The canal allows passage of ships up to 20 m (66 ft) draft or 240,000 deadweight tons and up to a height of 68 m (223 ft) above water level and a maximum beam of 77.5 m (254 ft) under certain conditions.The canal can handle more traffic and larger ships than the Panama Canal. Some supertankers are too large to traverse the canal. Others can offload part of their cargo onto a canal-owned boat to reduce their draft, transit, and reload at the other end of the canal.
