Which of the following statement is incorrect regarding the selection of dam site?

(a) For economy, the length of the dam should be as small as possible

(b) For a given height, it should store the maximum volume of water

(c) The river valley at the dam site should be narrow but should open out upstream to provide a large basin for a reservoir

(d) The general bed level at the dam site should preferably be lower than that of the river basin

I have been asked this question during an online exam.
