"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on what they want to do with the website.
They are all similar in a way.

They just need sort of static website were they publish information related to their company. No interaction with any client through this website except contact us form. Also is there a learning curve to develop this site either in wordpress or drupal?

There's a learning curve to learning anything the first time.

WordPress is considered easier to get moving than Drupal but it all depends on the users.

If you really only need a static/minimal site, also look into managed solutions like Squarespace or Wix which are marketed to non-technical users.  One assumes it will be more idiot-proofed.

Then Jason wins the prize - just use PHP to create a couple of pages.

For a really simple site, you could use Google Sites. I built this one very quickly with Google Sites:
