Some of the reasons for the difference in their measurement could be

$(i)$. Different measuring devices were used.

$(ii)$. The smallest length that could be measured by different devices may be different.

$(iii)$. Measurement may not be along the shortest length in all three cases.

$(iv)$. Maybe the end of the corridor is not easily accessible.

$(v)$. Faulty$(not\ standardized)$ measuring devices may be the reason.
