Del operator is also known as _________

A. Divergence operator

B. Gradient operator

C. Curl operator

D. Laplacian operator

I had been asked this question in examination.

This intriguing question originated from Gradient of a Function and Conservative Field topic in division Vector Differential Calculus of Engineering Mathematics

The correct choice is B. Gradient operator

Best explanation: This differential operator is not a vector itself but when it operates on a scalar function, for example, a vector ensues.
