Richmond Gear 5-speed,Why all the first gear ratio options?

I'm using a Richmond Gear 5-speed (A version) in my car, which has the following ratios:

A 3.28 2.13 1.57 1.24 1.00

Here are the 1st gear options (B and C versions):

B 4.06 2.22 1.57 1.24 1.00

C 4.41 2.22 1.57 1.24 1.00

My questions are:

1/ Under what type of situation would a person want the B or C versions?

2/ Would such a wide change between 1st and 2nd make smooth shifting a little more difficult?
