The max w/c ratio required for C-2 is 0.45 compared to 0.4 for C-1, so the C-2 class will probably reduce the shrinkage potential of the concrete and therefore less cracks, but I'm not sure if it's applicable if the table says it ...

Exposure Classes The Exposure Class is very significant. There is now a more complex prescriptive approach to specifying the durability required over the designed life of the concrete. This is determined by the end-use, e.g. concrete in the interior of a building will have a different exposure rating to concrete used in the foundations.

How To Specify Concrete Mix To EC2

Jan 09, 2021  Once the exposure class has been determined, the concrete strength needs to be chosen. The designer should already have a minimum strength that their design needs to achieve in order for it to be adequate. Common design mixes for slabs are C28/35 and C32/40 and C40/50 for columns but this depends on the concrete element and how the elements are designed.
