The first ever tube line was the 'CSLR', City & South London Railway.

The first Underground Railway is the Metropolitan Railway, between Paddington and Farringdon.

Yes, the question suggests the first deep level tube line.

However, he wants the Metropolitan Railway answer.

That suggests that the "answer you're looking for" is incorrect, surely?
