Would the correct answer be the closest multiple choice value numerically or the closest value under the maximum limit?
It is going to depend on the wording of the question.
Should the question specifically ask for the (option) answer closest to the correct answer, then you should take that to be a direction by the examiner to nominate whichever option answer is numerically closest to the correct answer.
Should the question not specifically ask for "closest" then you should take that to require your answer to be operationally correct, ie remain on the conservative side of the correct answer. The correct side is determined by consideration of where you need to be to remain within the relevant limit.
Bob may offer some further comment for clarification.
Sorry English is not my first language so I am really struggling with the wording and ambiguity of the question.
I really wouldn't worry about your English - it appears to be quite excellent.
