What is the maximum vertical deflection for a cantilever member in other buildings (other than industrial buildings) subjected to live load and elements not susceptible to cracking?

A. span/150

B. span/180

C. span/300

D. span/100

This question was addressed to me during an online exam.

The doubt is from Deflection & Holes in Beams in division Design of Beams of Design of Steel Structures

The correct answer is A. span/150

Best explanation: The maximum vertical deflection for a cantilever member in other buildings (other than industrial buildings) subjected to live load and elements not susceptible to cracking is span/150 and for elements susceptible to cracking is span/180.
