A road in a hilly terrain is to be laid at a gradient of $4.5\%$. A horizontal curve of radius $100\:m$ is laid at a location on this road. Gradient needs to be eased due to combination of curved horizontal and vertical profiles of the road. As per IRC, the compensated gradient (in $\%$, round off to one decimal place), is _______.

A theodolite is set up at station A and a $3$ m long staff is held vertically at station B. The depression angle reading at $2.5$ m marking on the staff is $6^{\circ}10’$. The horizontal distance between A and B is $2200$ m. Height of instrument at station A is $1.1$ m and R.L. of A is $880.88$ m. Apply the curvature and refraction correction, and determine the RL of B (in m) _______
