3. Because a round shape supports the most weight. You should know the other two answers if you want this job.

Answer to Q3:
The shape of the cover is round because the cover (circular disk) wouldn't accidentally fall inside the manhole. Instead, if the shape is square, then the cover would easily go in the manhole if tried to insert diagonally and vertically (diagonal of square > side). For a circle, any direction is the same length as the diameter.
